With Japanese car imports at an all-time high in the Eighties, it was just a matter of time when cars like the Mazda RX-7 made headlines. Following the success of the FB series the FC series RX-7 was designed to suit the American automotive market at the time. With iconic cars such as the Porsche 928 being the standard, the FC Mazda RX-7 set the tone for what was to come. Finding a mint example is becoming increasingly tough due to these cars being a familiar face at drift circuits and impromptu track days but this 1991 Mazda RX-7 FC we have today is a diamond in the rough. Located in Florida and with 100,000 miles reported since new this Japanese classic is one to admire and a comfortable cruiser if need be.
The FC series was rival to the equally iconic Z-series from Nissan at the time. The key Eighties design quirks are present, including pop-up headlights. This 1991 Mazda RX-7 FC is finished off in a black paint job and matching black convertible top. The exterior components of the car are all original and in great shape, right down to the original aluminum silver BBS factory rims, which play host to a set of new Nitto tires. The interior of this 1991 Mazda RX-7 FC is also finished in black. Like the exterior of the car, its interior is all original with the original steering wheel and Pioneer AM/FM radio with cassette player still present in the car. The plastic components show little to no wear, and creature comforts like the power windows in this car make for a great weekend driver.
While its design was nice what really made any RX-7 stand out was the rotary engine under the hood. These engines were comparatively small displacement units but sure made up for power. This 1991 Mazda RX-7 sports a 1.3L rotary engine which was capable of pushing out over 150hp when new, in a smooth and high-revving fashion. Power is sent to the rear wheels of the car through a 5-speed manual transmission. This car has seen a bit of maintenance done to it making it a practical classic to own. Work done includes a new electrical system, new cooling system, rebuilt exhaust system, refreshed rotor housing, recent oil change as well as a recent service to ensure the car runs smooth. It also reportedly has a new rally clutch kit installed.
