My brother 1971 Mazda 616 project

I pick up this car a few months back. I purchased it with the intent to part it out. But when the car came in the body was in alot better shape than I expected. Since I already own a R100, RX2 and a RX3 SP. I sold it to my brother. Plans are to swap the 616 front suspension to a RX2 and rotary swap it. Very early car. Build date is 1/71 with stock color being B5 galaic silver.

We're keeping it the original color on it. Great thing is it came with 71 hood and interior. That the plan at the moment. But things could change.
