is a RX7UP?
It is a RX7 Pickup.
been done as far as I know. Haven't been able to find one.
is a 1985 1982 RX7 GSL-SE
- 85/82. Front half is 85 rear 82
was bought on speculation, one of the last made. Fresh motor was built,
5th day on the road it was hit in the back and shorted eight inches. Good
motor was put in another car. A throw away motor was put in after the 82
back (from ' A' pillar back) was installed. Drove it five years before the motor
let loose. Decided it isn't worth anything as a collector GSL-SE and have
always toyed with the pickup idea.
will be a simple clean conversion. Thinking of using the rear window from a RX3
wagon for the rear glass. I will be retaining the 'C' pillars. The rear quarter
glass will be used for shop and sponsor info.
of project mandates as many factory Mazda parts be used. Updating and back
dating viable. Motor is a slightly massaged, flow tested porting, match
porting and flow ported intake. All stock emissions, emission compliance to
factory specification or better is also mandatory. (already attained)
of the great things about Mazda's emission system is that there really is very
little performance gain from removing or disabling the system. The only real
drain is the air pump and with advent of the electronically controlled clutch
that is no longer an issue. OK yes there is the weight all of
~25/30lbs. Putting a good set of light weight wheels on the car will take car of
that and get rid of un-sprung weight. Which is worth more than pulling an air
pump. There are also very good high efficiency hi-flow cats that can be
planned - trailer hitch find another FB and turn the back into a trailer.

from being painted
by Affordable Auto Painting - Tucson Arizona
of day one back from paint---
(fabricator) was here as said panel shouldn't be too bad to make. Gave me the
project of making the template, and told me how to make it. Foam board is
going to be a lot easier to work with than the masking paper I am using now. RX3
wagon window is viable. We will be using most of the upper half of the
interest in an 85 GSL-SE that is being turned into a pickup? It has a fresh motor, very
low wear housings, mild street port, match ported intake and housings, emissions
legal. (Long labor getting it to start, darn breaks in wire
connectors-insulation looked fine. Fired right up when fixed. You know those
freak motors, the ones that when they start there is that something..this is one
of them) Will definitely need better tire on it now. Engine
compartment nearly all new. All stock and
original. Has fresh white paint and interior needs work.
