The Latest 2nd gen sightings

Post by ian65 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:45 pm

Following on from one of the most popular threads on the forum, here's a latest sightings thread for FC's.......a very handy thing for keeping track of asking and sale prices and will also give a good indication of the current state of the market for the FC's.
To start us off, here's one...




1989 Turbo II vert £4000 on ebay BIN Bedworth MAZ4921
Build thread on RetroRides

seller description:

'Not something I really wanted to do but I've had to rationalise my car projects somewhat so the RX7 has to go!

I've had the car for just over two years now, bought back in Dec 2015, in that time its been totally reliable to me and has served as my daily driver for a fair amount of that time!
The previous owner had it since around 1999 and had the engine rebuilt at RX motors in the year 2000 at around 99k miles or so from memory, the car is now just over 127k miles and starts and runs well.
The electric roof, windows and cruise control all work perfectly, the headlights go up and down as they should. The factory LSD still functions well.
A brief summary of bits I've fixed/modified in the time I've owned it:

New clutch slave and master cylinders and braided line
Pipercross panel air filter
NGK plug leads
(serviced by myself as required)
Tidied and reinstated factory audio wiring
Alpine head unit installed
Removed old dead aftermarket immobiliser
Fitted OEM carpet mats
Fitted Racing Beat decat exhaust
Fitted Mazdaspeed front, Ohlins rear coilovers
Fitted Turbo II front lip
Repaired roof mechanism
Fitted AEM Boost, Volt and Wideband gauges
Air pump removed, double belt alternator pulley fitted
Aeromotive Stealth fuel pump fitted
Knight Sports FCD fitted
RAYS Volk Racing CV Pro Wheels refurbed and fitted
New brake discs and pads all round, new calipers on the rear
Fixed drivers door handle mech (changed a spring)
Had rust in both sills cut out and replaced with fresh metal

The car isn't without its issues, I try to be fair and list as many as I am aware of so there aren't hidden surprises:
The windscreen has a crack in the bottom corner, it got through the last MOT but has grown a bit since then
The drivers side A pillar has some rust on it, I think its still surface only but haven't poked it too much to be honest
The suspension is tired and knocks on the bump stops on big bumps (I have a brand new set of HSD Dualtech coilovers that will go with the car)
The cold idle (idle control valve/throttle linkage system) needs looking at, sometimes its fine, sometimes the car tries to idle too low before realising and bumping it back up, once warm it usually idles bang on.
The paint is a bit faded in areas
Roof has seen better days and has small tears in the usual FC vert places
AEM boost gauge has stopped reading, think it needs a new sensor
One of the (I think) rear wheel bearings has started getting noisy
Drivers seat base bolster has partially collapsed
The split rim bolts have some surface rust on them

I also have some parts to go with the car; the original steering wheel, tonneau cover for the roof, a JDM ECU with rtek 1.7 chip fitted, spare coil packs and AFM etc.
I do also have the original 15" BBS which can be swapped onto the car if preferred, or could be included as part of a deal.
As mentioned above, I'm selling as I need to focus more on my other automotive projects and its not currently economical for my commute as much as I love driving it.
I will listen to reasonable offers, but will ignore ridiculous offers or messages with simply a number in them. These cars are very rare and considering some of the work that has gone into mine, I think it's a fair valuation.
Any test drives will be subject to me seeing proof of insurance and proof of ability to pay for the car. Otherwise I am happy to drive.
Cheers for looking!'

Sellers description:

Well where do we start!.Found in a local barn we have 3 x Mazda RX7 s, 2 Convertibles, 1 Coupe All TURBO 11 s all complete and have all V5 s old and new and Keys etc etc. These are RARE and either Resto projects or spares to make a good 1 out of the 3 or break for parts which im sure you would struggle to get these days so would probably dismantle to a small fortune. We was told by the farmer that 2 drove in and 1 would not start ie; 1 of the convertibles. Would like all 3 to go to a good home together but may separate if price is right.These are now classics and are fast becoming hard to find Turbo 2 s. Please message or call and will be happy to help and we strongly recommend a viewing prior to bidding to satisfy yourself as these have been parked up for at least 10 years and do not expect mint cars as we say these are RESTORATION only.YOU ARE BIDDING FOR ALL 3 CARS.They are advertised elsewhere so may be withdrawn from auction.Call 07730 337012/01344777005

1990 TII vert on Ebay classified ad price £6750 - Middlesborough

Image

Image

Image

Sellers description:

Finished in stunning graphite metallic with a black leather interior. This is in true timewarp condition throughout. The paintwork is oin excellent order and has no evidence of any of the usual corrosion issues you would associate with most models of this era. The alloys look incredibly fresh (yet still original) If I were being picky of the condition I would highlight some very minor kerbing to the edge of 2 alloy wheels and the odd minor car park “dink” (barely visible) . The hood has a small inch long split on the top seam (easily repaired) but this does not let in water. The hood functions exactly as it should and there is also a factory fitted wind deflector and tonneau cover in place. Tyres are all uniroyal branded and matching on all four corners.
The car drives without fault and comes with a current MOT in place until September this year.
As you would expect with such a fine example all documentation is present including all manuals, both keys and an incredibly thorough service history – the Book is stamped exclusively by Mazda Main Agents as well as a plethora of service invoices again predominantly from main agents including a full engine rebuild costing over £3000 at 53k miles. All old mot's are present confirming its very low mileage of only 70000, as are the tax discs and corresponding RFL reminders.
This is a very very original car that has clearly been cherished by just 4 owners from new and is ready to be enjoyed again.
Please contact us for further details. Part Exchange up or down is welcome with any classic or modern vehicle.

Never realised they're were so many t2 coupes for sale. This section will not do my FC WANT! levels any good (hp) I have had 3 very happy years in a convertible previously. I want did I say (hp) (hp) (hp) already.

The car in Scotland is so tempting.

Now I hate saying this (because I like cars for driving not appreciating in value) but surely a nice t2 coupe will fetch 10k . which makes a cheap one tempting? Plenty of money can be justified in bringing it to standard?
