1973 Mazda RX3 part out

All,

I have a complete, all original, running RX3 that is currently being parted out and would like to gauge how much interest there is on parts.

- all trims
- complete interior except carpet
- lights
- chassis
- you name it....

Let me know.

TIA

If clutch parts (pedal, MC) are compatible with a 73 RX2, I'd be interested in those bits!

I need front and rear window glass if you have it. Also need all the internal linkages/hardware to the door handles

Do you want to cut the body up any? like the metal around the windows part of the roof, ect?

Why not sell the car as a whole?

I could use some interior parts, like the plastic pieces where the side vent cables attach (can't recall if they're easy to remove), storage bin under glove box, gauge cluster, stock shift ****, seat belts, etc.

would rather see the whole car go to someone though.

Not to rain on anybody who has requested parts. But, the damn thing is a complete running example. Why not just sell it whole?

How is the shell? If you've still got the shell ands its a coupe with steering rack, suspension, brakes and rear end I'd be willing to take it off your hands. Hell, if you have it I may even take the entire car.

Thanks for the interests and replies guys.

After much debate, I've decided to keep the rx3. It is currently being painted and should soon appear in a meet near you.

well...it actually did ... down to the nitty gritty. The shell is currently being massaged and painted....

not that strange, really. just could not decide whether to keep the RX3 - currently working on an RX4 as well. Needless to say, I'm keeping both.

I'll post pics when it gets out of the body shop.
