Original/Unrestored: 1973 Mazda Luce GR R12 (RX-4)

December 09, 2012

A quick glance of the car shows that it remains unrestored, and let's be honest, kinda rough. Like I said though, I was still happy to see it.

The LA Series Luce was built from 1972 to 1978. This Luce Sedan was built in 1973. It has a 1,146cc rotary engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
