Hello I am selling a very rare Mazda GLC 'Sport' hatchback with a rotary engine swap utilizing a Racing Beat Holley carburetor + manifold. The Mileage indicated on the odometer is the mileage run since the rotary engine was installed. It was smoged recently before the swap so it wont require another smog if you register it soon enough after this auction ends. The car is very fun to drive (estimated 120 wheel horsepower in a sub 1 ton car is plenty quick) and ready to run on the racetrack. This engine swap is NOT LEGAL for road use in California unless you are willing to run an OEM Mazda 12A carburetor with all related emissions equipment and get it BAR'd and ref'd for CARB exemption. Mostly everything on this car still works remarkably well, but there's a few little things left to fix. Passenger door needs an exterior door lock cylinder. The rear hatch key lock does not work you have to use the interior button to open the rear hatch. The rear pop out window latches are broken and the latches are kept in the shut position with zip ties but you can retrofit different latches or try and repair the originals I didn't loose all the parts. The heater does not work (heater core is probably clogged) and the blend door inside the dash needs adjustment because when you open the manual vents to let fresh air in through the dash it makes a slight rattle sound at freeway speeds. The exhaust system has some scrapes but it is custom made to hug the undercarriage as tightly as possible for ground clearance. The transmission and differential were designed to have perfect alignment at this lowered right height to minimize wear on the driveshaft u-joints. The suspension likewise has roll-center adjusters to maintain proper angles and prevent bump-steer. The Tokico Illumina shock inserts in the front need replacement but those are still readily available. I did my best to be thorough with my descriptions but a project this unique isn't easy to summarize. I am happy to answer any questions.
