Yet Another Mazda Roadpacer AP In A Sad & Sorry State

February 27, 2016

What a fascinating car the Roadpacer is with it's Holden body, 13B rotary, and drinks cooler in the boot. You can argue all you want of the ridiculousness of dropping an underdone wankel in a large/medium executive's sedan, but why? Neither you or anyone you know is going to buy one to lug the boat or caravan to your favourite holiday spot.

The RA13S Series Roadpacer was built from Apr 1975 to 1979. This Roadpacer was built in 1976. It has a 1,310cc rotary engine.
