Rockinghorse Rotary: 1973 Mazda Luce GSII Hardtop Coupe - 929/RX4

March 04, 2017

An automotive design that is both highly distinctive and pleasing is not an easy thing to pull off. Mazda did it though with their 2nd generation Luce hardtop Coupe.

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

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>
