ULTRA LOW MILES -- LOCALLY OWNED -- SHOW QUALITY -- CLEAN CARFAX! Hertel Auto Group is proud to offer this amazing find - an ultra-low mileage, car show quality 1991 Mazda RX-7 Convertible for sale in Fort Worth Texas. Where were you in '91? Listening to the groundbreaking new album from Nirvana? Marveling at how great the Sega Game Gear and Super Nintento Gaming Systems were? Repeating Arnold's famous quote from Terminator 2, "Hasta La Vista Baby." Rooting (or Booing if you are a Cowboys fan) the New York Giants Super Bowl Win? Well, if you'd been at a Mazda Dealership in Arlington Texas, you would have been envying the person who could afford to buy that sizzling and sexy red Mazda RX-7 Convertible loaded with options for sale. It wasn't you, but it was some lucky individual who picked it out and took it home. Fast forward to 1998 and Jerry's of Weatherford. That same RX-7 Convertible - now with 77K miles on it - was purchased by a Fort Worth resident and taken home. Proudly shown and lovingly cared for by that owner for the next 18+ years, here it is again - just 4K miles later! And it is beautiful! This 2nd Gen "FC" Mazda RX-7 is about as close to exceptional as a 26-year-old-car can get. It's definitely ready to take to your local car shows and present with pride. First introduced in 1988, the RX-7 Convertible featured a removable rigid section over the passengers and a folding textile section with a heatable rear window. Part power and part manually operated, it was still a design innovation of the time. To enhance the overall solid feeling of a traditional hardtop car, Mazda engineers retained 70% of the torsional rigidity by using thicker steel in the rocker panels, A-Pillar, and drivetrain tunnel, as well installing behind the crossbeams behind the engine, rear seats, and between the rear seat towers. The result was a convertible that didn't suffer as much from dashboard and cowl shake every time you hit a bump in the road. And while all this additional strength added weight to the car, Mazda engineers helped shed some weight by raiding the parts bin of the RX-7 Turbo in the form of an aluminum hood. It also gained the Turbo's 10.9" ventilated front brakes up front. Another common Convertible complaint is wind turbulence. Mazda engineers also addressed this by testing the car with the top down in the wind tunnel. In doing so, they found that buffeting was being caused not by wind passing over the windshield, but ricocheting off the rear deck. To combat it, they developed a Windblocker anti-turbulence panel that flips up unobtrusively and blocks some of the turbulence that intrudes into the passenger cabin. Another interesting and unique aspect of the Convertible is that - unlike the hard top - it was painted using Mazda's Hi-Reflex process which actually rotated the body while baking the paint in a drying oven. This process permitted thicker coats of paint to be used without runs or drips and provided a glossier finish than using the traditional painting process. No wonder the paint on this rust-free RX-7 looks SO shiny on this one! Genius! The soft top is also in excellent condition with no rips or tears anywhere. On the road, the RX-7 sported the normally aspirated "13B" twin rotor engine that had original factory specifications of 160 horsepower. And while it won't win many stoplight battles today, it still sounds great and runs just like you'd expect a low-mileage vehicle to. And since the road was made for travelling, there are two lockable storage boxes in the rear bulkhead. Inside is where this Mazda really shines. Outside of some typical wear you'd expect to find in leather seats of this age, the interior looks as close to perfect as a pre-owned vehicle can get. It would put many cars that were a fraction of its age to shame. Pay close attention to just how bright and new-looking all of the buttons, switches and controls are. There is virtually no fading to be found anywhere. We love the old-school speakers in the headrests - a la Pontiac Fiero - as well. With all of that said, this is your chance to own a Collector, Show Car or just something to be unique and different in as you cruise the weekends - drawing admiring stares and thumbs-up signs everywhere you go. A similar model on Hemmings is being sold at $10,900, so we've priced this one-of-a-kind car to sell quickly. Don't let this chance to own a legend pass you by!
