For Sale: 1974 Mazda Rotary Pickup

You find some weird ones mislabeled as RX-7s.

Someone showed me this on the RX-7 discord server. This is a Mazda Repu, the mini truck that proudly tells you it's ROTARY POWER(ED). This one appears to have had a hell of a life, as illustrated by these photos of it running the corksrew at Laguna Seca. Whether or not it's handling it, I don't know, but it sure looks cool.

This thing has some serious patina, and is powered by a 1985 RX-7 swap. The owner lists a lot of pros and no cons. Are you ready to have the most unique truck at Cars and Coffee whenever we start doing them again? $12000 on Facebook will get you there. For some reason it's listed as an RX-7, so you'd never find it in our very own Mazda Repu thread. The Ford Courier thread may interest you as well.
