This is the rare of the rarest in Mazda Rotary History with only 44 made from Feb.1974~Jul.1976 the Parkway Rotary Bus is one cool ride notably with its TQX gearbox and select-sync differential...There are about 4 that still exsist in Japan and one on the road after getting recomissioned.

Here are the technical specs of the TA13L...

Pics later :)
