The AE86 you REALLY get for $22K – up close
This rare and classic 1968 Mazda Cosmo Sports L10A coupe was inspected for a client at auction in Japan over the weekend.
Full production of the Mazda Cosmo sports 2-door coupe began in May 1967 and lasted through 1972. Cosmos were built by hand at a rate of only about one per day, for a total of 1,519 (343 Series I cars and 1,176 Series II cars).
It had a start price of 4 million Yen but was cancelled from auction (reason unknown). Start price alone is equivalent to almost $70,000 landed in Aust. May be back for re-auction on Saturday 16 July 2016.
We specialise in sourcing the best Japanese cars and we take time to inspect them properly. If you want a genuine km, clean and original vehicle, we can find it for you.
You need to be ready and waiting for the right car though, some are not easy to find these days.
When it does come up, you need an agent that puts in the extra effort to thoroughly inspect it for all the usual faults and issues and provides a full set of pictures on auction day so you can decide what it’s worth.
Rule #1: Don’t EVER buy a car unless you’ve had someone you trust check it first.
