Fs:1988 RX-7 Convertible, 65k original miles, 5spd, exceptional condition

$9,500

Exceptionally clean car. Driven monthly. Annual maintenance. Garaged. No rust.

Selling to clear space in my garage and focus on my Nissan projects. Very minimal modifications using only high-quality or OEM parts. Zero mechanical issues. Jump in and drive it home anywhere in the US. Tags just renewed through Dec. 2020.

Additional pics from November 2015 when I purchased the car in California. I drove it down the coast and across the Southwest out to Colorado. Leather bra was installed just for this drive to protect the front end. Was removed and sold soon as I got to Colorado.

Notes and nitpicky details:

- Minor (non-collision, see carfax) damage reported in 1992 to passenger side fender and small dent in A pillar (near mirror). I had the fender and dent near the mirror fully repaired and paint matched in 2019 at Precision Auto Works in Broomfield, CO (pic from before repairs in gallery).

- Small chips in paint & clear coat visible up close if you know where to look

- Rear passenger fender paint cracked under fender lip, not visible, not peeling

- Windshield wiper sprayer is weak (despite newly rebuilt relays and newly installed pump motor in 2019)

- Windshield wipers do not operate on intermittent mode for whatever reason (despite new relays). They work fine in regular mode.

- Car hasn’t been driven in rain for the past 5 years, so this hasn’t been an issue

- Headrest speakers non-functional - Wiring was cut by a previous owner. This is probably an improvement over having the tiny 30yr-old speakers blaring right behind your ears.

- Stereo runs on Door and Dash speakers (both newer Rockford Fosgate units)

- Drivers vinyl armrest in door just starting to get a bit wavy

- Minor carpet color fading on door panels

- Crack in passenger interior plastic behind seat (not noticeable unless you're looking for it)

- Passenger power window motor a little slower than drivers side, still fully functioning

- Brake booster leaked at some point prior to my ownership and created minor surface corrosion in driver's side rail of the engine bay (also not noticeable unless you're looking for it)

- Engine leaks a couple drops of oil each time it is parked, just haven't had to the time to locate and seal it up

- Shift return spring needs replaced (common 2nd gen RX7 issue, does not affect/impact shifting), replacement spring included

- File folder full of receipts and records included
