Beautiful! It's good to see some RX cars down under that are still kept in original condition and don't have wild paint jobs. :tu: :tu:

I have placed my RX2 GR sedan on EBAY for anyone interested. Reserve is very reasonable for the quality of this car, would cost double reserve to build if parts were available.

Its been a while since i updated this thread so i though i would put some pics of my RX2 coupe thats been comleted for some time.

The car is basically new with a NOS 12a twin dizzy crate motor that has been rebuilt even though it was new. Car undertook a full strip down to the shell resto.

After restoring numerous RX mazdas i have come to the conclusion that Capella coupes are the hardest to source parts for which has made this a very expensive and long exercise.

Unfortunately i have allready sold this car for those who keep sending me PM with offers to buy.

:tu: Love Herschel Orange coupes.....very nice :D. Pity you may have to sell it :cry:

Can I ask, what month/year is it......some things with 2 coupes can be confusing depending when they were made, I'm still lost on a few things that must have been around a changeover month.

Also, did they ever come with the RX3 style centre caps?

oldmaz your rx2 Coupe is exactly as they should be, it is drop dead gorgeous.

Nothing suits an old Mazda like the factory range of 70's colours. All the brightwork compliments the nice bodywork and breaks up the colour just right 8) Makes me wonder why people try to visually improve an already perfect package... but hey Im bias !

You must like building them to give them away with the number of cars you sell, I'd hate to think what the restoration costs would be and whether you recoup all costs and time.

What more can I say 10/10 perfect in every regard, this car is the complete package which is rarely found in Mazda's these days... love it :tu:

That metallica green/blue on the RX2 Sedan is insane for a factory colour, love it.

Its a 11th of 1972 from memory. Yes these cars have various parts descrepency i have built this car how i bought it but changed the bonnet.

And yes they share the same center caps as RX3 coupe.

Yes the original colours are very appealing i almost did paint it factory silver but it was a original OA orange car in the end im happy i did.

I do enjoy rebuilding them but dont do the body work as i have on previos cars and relise you really do need a good set up to do it properly.

I actually didnt build my cars to sell but due to change in circumstances things have to go and yes you never get your money back on cars let alone the 1000 of hours you spend restoring them,

ha always thought the rear tails looked were curiously "divided" in 1/2
with the capella trim piece in place it makes more sense 8)

btw, where do you put this fs?

When was the S1/S2 change over, I thought it was earlier 72?
So yours had a non-vented bonnet, same as my S1?
And the T-dash, forward door lock knobs and badged seats are all part of the later S1's....was that on the changover aswell?
Lastly, the 'cog' look centre caps with the rotor/M symbol is that an earlier centre cap?

Sorry for all the questions, just trying to figure out some of the differences which appear on late 71 and 72 model coupes and it seems yours and mine have a few of those differences.......yours would look nice next to mine, pity we are so far away, a photoshoot would be great! :D :D :D
