1987 Mazda 323 323 GTX LUXE

Mazda 323 323 GTX LUXE (1987)
for sale

Price: US $9,500.00


Up for sale is my 1987 Mazda 323 GTX 4WD 1.6 liter DOHC 16v Turbo.
Not many models left on the USA/UK roads and currently the only registered right hand drive car of it's kind in the USA.
Mazda only produced around 1300 in the USA and were restricted with the 137BHP version, this is a 150BHP version due to different turbo housing and a less restricted exhaust system due to EU/GB regulations at the time.
Comes with a unique wide body arch kit and matching front and rear bumpers.
The car was Imported from Great Britain back in 2015 after buying it from a car collector.
Since it's arrival the car has undergone many upgrades and replacement parts over the last four years to get it to somewhat show quality;)
It has sat in my garage for the last four years, being driven very little, maybe 500-750 miles, only to shows and to the shop for upgrades.
Here is a list of the items that I've had done or had repaired:
New custom copper core radiator fitted, new and upgraded Yonaka intercooler (21x9 I believe) with custom made intercooler brackets and piping, all fastenal high pressure clamps used.
New alternator, leads, spark plugs, oil, fuel and air filter and a number of oil changes.
PCV Valve change, custom turbo intake painting, custom valve cover gasket painting.
The car blew a piston on the freeway home and was repaired at RS Motors in Burnsville in 2019, head repaired, all new gaskets, piston and rings replaced.
Runs fantastic after the repairs.
Upgraded VF11 Turbo, custom exhaust system maybe 3 turbo back, upgraded ECU.
D2 coilovers all-round with brand new 15 Petrol rims (Used for 4 local shows, maybe 100 miles or so) Newish tires that still have the wording in the tread pattern.
The car was resprayed back to its original silver after having a two tone stripe around the lower portion of the car back in 2018 (see early pictures).
20% Black Tint all round installed in summer 2019 by Tint My Ride
I may have missed some items like brakes and various service items.
Car has been stored during the winter and only ran during the summer months.
Non Oxy Fuel used.
Real head tuner, super fun to drive.
Winner of the Back to the 80's Car Show People's Choice Award June 2019
$$$ spent on Mazda parts from the dealer (clips, seals, piston, rings etc)
Interior is in great shape, i think we have only used the rear seats once in the 4 years.
Other spare parts are available which I will discuss with the buyer.
Any questions at all please let me know as I'm happy to talk about the car.
Please remember this is a specialist car, and 33 years old.
Parts are available but you'll need to research and join a few forums.
I can share history of the car and other more boring details on the build on request:)
Buyer to collect as you WILL NOT FIT THIS ON A CAR TRAILER due to it being low, unless you have the special 4' extra drop tow truck, believe me AAA will not tow this car for you, nor will pretty much anyone else!!!
Front bumper will need to be removed if the car needs to be towed. ..which is a PITA...but I'd be happy to help if I can
