Body kits have been an essential part of vehicle tuning for decades, and at this point, we’ve seen vehicles that have started out as mild and been taken to extremely wild – usually improving the looks in the process.
“Improvement” is in the eyes of the beholder, especially when those eyes are looking at this RX-7, which has been fitted with a custom body kit from Japan. This 1995 FD3s Mazda RX-7 is available on eBay with a current Buy It Now price of $55,000, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For some reason, it’s been fitted with an RE Amemiya Super GReddy AC987 body Kit.
RE Amemiya is responsible for some of the best-looking body kits for Mazda Rx-7 models… but if you ask me, this isn’t one of them
The FD generation RX-7 is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful vehicles of the 1990s. Why you would modify it with the face of a Porsche 911 is beyond us. Around the back isn’t as hideous, with large circular lights replacing the svelte taillights of the original.
Under the hood is a 13B-REW rotary engine, connected to a 5-speed transmission and sending power to the rear wheels. The body is white, but the roof suggests that the car left the factory in black. The RX-7 rides on a set of rare and discontinued AW-7 two-piece wheels, which were made in Japan exclusively for the FD3s.
For all the work that’s been done to the exterior, the interior remains mostly stock, save for the addition of a rather tatty Momo steering wheel and a quad of accessory gauges.
Even with the body modifications, the FD3s Mazda RX-7 is a desireable vehicle, and this one appears to be in good running order with just 43,613 miles (70,189 km) on the odometer. The styling may be polarizing, but if the RE Amemiya A986 RX-7 is your thing, snap this one up, you might not see another for a long time.
