My ultimate 1st gen Rx-7 is a white 12at SE-Limited. I'll own one one day.


GT-X

it was imported into the UK in 1984, then fitted with a full TWR kit.

It hasn't been used since 1993. Surprisingly rust free considering.

Keen to see the specs. Cheers dude.

Thanks mate, that helps a lot.

Custom metallic silver and red interior and power mirrors.

What's the difference between the GT, GT-X and SE Limited?

Any idea how many were made?

Thanks again.

Hey guys, let me start by saying this is a fantastic thread. I just got a nice little '85 s3, was told it was the limited model, but it has:-
-full electrics (minus central locking)
-Red seats, carpet, dash.
-amp'd stereo with graphic equalizer
-original space saver tyre
-tachometer to 8 grand and speedo to 210
-light silver paint with rubber buffers down both sides

Thing that throws me is the foam wing on the back, it runs the entire length of the rear glass panels. Never seen one quite the same on here or anywhere on the net.

Would post a pic but can't load it off an iPad.

Cheers for the help in advance.

JDM 1978 Limited spec model had these "shoulder shrug" seats fitted.

The GT, Super Custom and Custom spec models had a very similar seat however it had a fixed head.

As for trim colour, it looks to have been replaced at some point.
Is your car red ?

I had a JDM SE-Limited ( 2nd owner)
12a 6port auto with overdrive
LSD
Jesus bar in the passenger footwell
Sunroof and Burgundy leather

Sold it to a bloke who had it stolen from his workshop...
Never to be seen again :cry:

Just guessing, but all the red interriors with that pattern in s1 I have seen in Japan & USA have been in red cars.

Hi,
Please can anyone help me sort out what door mirror goes on a savanna 78.
Is it only one?
Or a pair?
I have a mirror and I just want to make sure that it's the correct one.
I no that they should have guard mirrors.
I have seen some original pics with just the one on door.
My email address is sameale@hotmail.com or 0438636198
So i can send the photo of what I have.
Thanks
Mazrota
