For sale is a 1976 Mazda 1000 saloon. I am the second owner having purchased it from the original lady owner back in1992
Tax and MOT exempt
In 2008 I carried out a bare shell rebuild while it was still in reasonable condition.
The underside, inner floor and engine bay were media blasted to reveal that the only structural work needed was to replace both outer sills and some repair work around the rear wheel arches.
The complete floor, chassis rails, inner wings and inner sills are totally original and have no repair patches at all.
New old stock genuine Mazda wings, bonnet, front skirt and boot lid have been fitted. Doors were in rust free condition
Paint is the original Mazda blue with interior floor in matt black
All the lights are genuine Mazda new old stock items.
Rear bumper is new old stock whilst the front one has been rechromed
The rear suspension has been converted to a 5 link set-up using proprietary Escort link boxes and a custom made panhard rod tower. Suspension towers are the round type – a pain to fit but, even though they are not visible from the inside, so much nicer than the “cheaper” looking square items.
Rear shocks are Escort spec Gaz 2 ¼” coilovers
Rear axle is the standard Mazda item although I have run an Anglia van axle under there to get an LSD. Standard Escort English axle is too wide. BabyAtlas may be the way to go!
Rear brakes are standard Mazda fitment.
Front struts are Leda 2 ¼” coilovers with standard discs and refurbed callipers
New ball joints and polybushes throughout.
Engine is a new build 1340cc item.
This has cost me a fortune. Receipts to prove!
