Incredible time capsule

Back when it was launched, Mazda’s upmarket RX-4 coupe offered what was for the time a stunning equipment list.

According to our online profile: "With a stylish body and more equipment, the RX-4 was bigger and heavier than the RX-3 model that was building a sizeable reputation in Production Car racing. However it was aimed at a very different market as well.

"The interior was sumptuous, with excellent reclining seats, lots of sound insulation, a dash packed with detail and optional air-conditioning. Standard features included a four-spoke steering wheel, tachometer that was redlined from 7000-8000rpm, temperature and amps gauges, a heater/demister, central console, rear window demister and head-restraints."

This example is an incredible time capsule, claiming 6400km and with the seats carefully wrapped in delivery plastic. It’s as close as you’re likely to get to an unrestored dead original example in something close to showroom condition. And it has a well-recorded history.

The sale is being handled by Oldtimer in Qld and it’s priced at $174,950
