More on the Mazda Cosmo

So in the 24 hours or so since I posted my note (both here, and on the Jag-Lovers E-type mailing list) about spotting the 1971 Mazda Cosmo Sport over the weekend, I have received a half-dozen inquiries about the car. I noted it had a “for sale” sign in the window, and several people have expressed interest in contacting the owner. I don’t have his permission to post name & phone number here on my site, but I have replied to the interested parties offline with that info.

I stopped again there to take more pictures. I spoke to a guy at the house (not the car’s owner) who told me that it was one of 3 here in the USA. I can believe it as when I arrived home I tried to assess the car’s value in my copy of Sports Car Market’s annual price guide… and it wasn’t even listed! So if you want to be in a very exclusive club along with Jay Leno, let me know and I’ll pass along the contact info. 😉

My photos are here.

The seller is asking $36,000, and the car has 129,000 km on the odometer. (That’s 80k miles for you metrically challenged Americans.)

  1. Hmm….I think I know where Mazda stole the basic shape/fender line from…;)
    Google ‘1963 Lamboghini 350,’ and see if ya don’t agree! I think the Lambo works better, as a styling execise.
    I’s usre not mind the Mazdo though. although there are NO parts available to fix the original engines, the 12a works nicely in it!
