Another blue one for sale in Yorkshire. 88k miles 4 grand.
Needs some work according to the owner but looks ok in the photos

Sounds like it’s had a lucky escape if he wanted to turn it into a milk float
He is sentimental about the car though :D :shock:

This one is new to me. Prices are getting crazier by the day.

"REAL Elford Turbo" ..... as opposed to what, a fake Elford Turbo? Surely they are either an Elford Turbo or they're not? :?

Just to say, that 1st Gen RX7 (XLJ 818X) - I am the person who bought it and hopefully will have it reliably back on the road sometime soon . It needs loads of work, but would love to get in touch with the former owner to hear why he sold it, any known issues and some history behind it.

Hi Justin. I think you mean XLJ 181X.
It was in Wigan at the end of 2015. Then it moved to Bradford where some restoration took place. And a colour change here?
Then it was in Towcester (Hayward Rotary)?
Now with you in sunny Dorset.

If you enter the reg in the search box on here you will find a few posts about it.

That's what I've got.

Looks like it has lots of potential, worth getting a thread with details of what's been done and plans etc... Looks good sya

Yeah, sorry I get numbers/letters mixed up a bit. Will get some photos of the car through her progression back onto the road. Including the bad before and after stuff.

Here is a great looking gen 3 example in my favourite colour blue.
At £9995 it is pricey
