Cool project! Small cars have less metal to restore.

Have you heard of the one that was restored in Fountain Hills, AZ ?

Here's the article about it from Hemmings

The Fountain Hills guy is me! I have been looking for another project for a while as my Cosmo Sport restoration is almost done.
Thanks, Glenn

This one was mentioned on the RX7 club website from Craigslist in DE.
If you hear of any other , let me know as it needs lots of hard to find parts!
Thank, Glenn

It would have to be mr Glenn Roberts! Another excellent project again mate! You do find the coolest things. Are you going to weave your usual Mazda magic?

Best of luck, Timbo from downunder

It;s such a pity I don't read Japanese, I stumbled across this journal of a US trip with two R360s, but I haven't got a clue why they went on this 'voyage'...

Great find Michiel! I found a photo of the R360's at the Indy Motor Speedway years ago but didnt know what the story was. Now I can translate it!
Thanks, Glenn

Im afraid this will be a little more difficult on one end, this car came from the East coast, where it gets a little rust here and there, compared to the 1st car, which was always in rust free Arizona and Southern California. The easier part is that I have figured out some of the parts sources and have another car to duplicate. When I got the first car in 1986, it was the only one around but luckily, a very original former museum car with no parts missing and zero rust.
Looking forward to getting started!!

:shock: you have 3 left hand drive, are you trying to collect them all?... how many left hand drive ones exactly were imported to the states originaly? Didnt the one from the far left come from Canada, because I remember seeing one like that on the rx7club forum, and if it is that car it has the motor right? well good luck, looks like your gonna need it.

Hi
Yes the car on the left is the Canada car. It is a very early left hand drive. They were made for US servicemen stationed in Japan. Nobody knows how many total were made left hand drive, but there are another 3 in the USA with left hand drive that I know of. The Canada car has a motor and some spares that came with it. It is going to be a parts car for the middle car, as it is really too rusty to repair correctly.
