Make : MAZDA MX-6 Transmission : Manual Kilometres : 322000 Price : $3,200 Condition : Good Hey guys, up for sale is my '87 GD Mazda MX6 turbo
As per most people on here, she is my pride and joy
I have spent over $4k in restoring her (receipts available) to mostly stock condition.
Compression check done, with 125-130 between all four, which is excellent for a 320000km old engine
Has a Pod Filter and lowered Pedders springs (legal height) as well as stiffer shocks on the rear. Does coem with stock airbox/radio/springs and a second set of stockies in grey/standard (as opposed to the current white stockies)
5spd manual FWD 2.2 turbo, NOT a 4WS model.
The colour is champagne/metallic light-gold- its very subtle and draws absolutely no attention.
Asking for $3200 but am slightly negotiable, comes with 11 months rego but no RWC, but has recently had a load of work done, so shouldn't need much done if anything (has a dropped drivers-side door handle.
This car has been very well looked after, with no paint fade, no cracks in the dash, no rust, excellent cond seats/trim and most of its kms are highway-driven. The engine compression is fine, as stated, and i also have receipts for this. the turbo also has no play at all. Considering its excellent condition i wouldnt be suprised if it was rebuilt at some point, but i cant confirm this. I also wash her regularily and wax her when i have the time (usually monthly), is only run on BP ultimate and i service it with proper filters and Turbolight 4100 semi-synthetic oil. Also has DOT-4 fluid for for the brakes and clutch.
A bit of history - the mx6 is actualyl a 1988- car, but htis was one of the first in aus, and i have the orignal books to prove this- was boguht from a dealer in ferntree gully. Im assuming this might have been an ex-press car or something? Anyways these cars were controversial underrated by Mazda australia, as having only 100kw, but they actually have 108kw when run on 98 octane fuel. This means that you can drive it with an exception on P-plates (not that 99% of cops would even know its turbo, but i personally wouldn't recommend doing this untill you have official exemption from vicroads).
The engine was originally designed for light commercial trucks/B-series ute, and hence has a ridiculous amount of torque and a tough mid-range. 253nm of torque from 108kw is insane, especially for its time! Stock times are quoted and tested at 15.4secs over the 1/4mile, which is very good for its time. With small boost, exhaust and good tires these cars can (and do) run low 14's. Chuck in a LSD and a second-hand subaru VJ12 turbo on 14psi and youll be running 13's easily, all with the build-quality,comfort and reliability of a regular Mazda 4cyl.
It was marketed as a $40k luxury GT cruiser, and as such it has a few extras like electronic suspension (i have this disabled on the rear for better handling), some of the best factory seats you will ever experience complete with lumber support and adjustable side-bolsters. It also has Cruise control, electronic sunroof and power windows, all of which are still working!
Im asking for within the area of $3200, which is more than fair for the excellent condition and long rego.
Come and have a look for yourself, located in northern suburbs of Melbourne.
