You’re at work, but you’d rather be shopping for an old longroof. You don’t even need an old American landship, either. I’ve found two for you that might fit the bill: a 1973 Mazda RX-3 and a 1966 Datsun. Both are unique, and both are in great shape… so are you sticking with the inline four or ready to rock out with the rotary?
The Datsun stands out with its bright blue paint and lower-panel woodwork. It looks very clean, but we’re a bit afraid of the $7,500 Buy-It-Now. Sure, it’s a looker… but we’d rather spend that much money on a worked-over 510.
The Mazda hides its unique bit, but you all know its lurking under the hood. This rotary unit is said to run very healthy and strong. Also, it’s been paired with a bunch of hopped-up go-faster parts and the car is equipped with a four-speed manual gearbox out of a 1979 RX7. The Mazda seems ready to run, and run well, and the Buy-It-Now is a bit more reasonable $6,000. Still, the Make An Offer button is on the listing as well. (psst – offer $4,500 cash)
