Toyota Corona RT84. 12a Mazda Rotary transplant.

An old video:

Please note that this is a project and is not complete. You will need a trailer to take away although it does run off key. It is very loud. AIWI.

Body: RT84 Toyota corona. Has been painted white by a previous owner but was not a great job. It has been lowered front and rear, front with captive springs and rear with lowering blocks. Has been wof'd with this setup. Has two areas of rust, at the bottom of both front guards. Apart from that the body is very tidy for its age.

Interior: Interior is not carpeted although it has been soundproofed on the floor. Seats are an oldschool leather vinyl in good condition. Dash has no cover to it. Also has boss kit and smaller steering wheel.

Engine: This was built by Steve Hardie of Wellington, renowned rotary specialist. This engine has done less the 150km since new build and has a full bridgeport cut. Engine is practically brand new as all parts were assembled from new spares. New: Housings, rotors, carbon 3mm apex seals, end plates, etc. The only thing not new on the block is the front cover.
Has a full exhaust through to a dumpy which is extremely loud, will need buffers put in for cert.
Engine has a locked electronic dizzy, new coils and 10mm eagle leads. 48mm Weber IDA that has been jetted to suit. New starter motor. Shortened driveshaft and driveshaft loop.

Gearbox is a W50 in great condition.

Rims: Wheels are Lenso RS5's. They have done less then 3k road travel. Tyres are in reasonable condition.

Issues for cert: Will need to be rereg'd/wofd, silencers for the exhaust, handbrake sorted and potentially the rust. Will also need a new clutch release bearing.

I simply do not have the time to finish this project. I may sell seperately but would prefer to sell as a package.

I could be interested in swaps for a tidy daily driver and cash. I do NOT want to swap for another project.
