Up for sale in the Orlando showroom is this 1996 Mazda Miata. The Mazda Miata was Japan’s spiritual revival of the classic British Sportscar segment made so popular by MG, Triumph and Austin-Healey among others. Typically powered by a small 4 cylinder paired with a short geared manual transmission, the Miata has a reputation for being playful and dynamic, though not exactly fast or powerful. This has left much to be desired for the more bombastic driver. To solve this dilemma a grass roots community assembled and created what has come to be known as the Monster Miata! In various forms of driveline and suspension setup, a Monster Miata is a Miata with V8 engine. This example is fitted with a Ford 302 and boy is it a Monster! With a 4 barrel, 650 Edelbrock carb this baby sucks in air like a champ and huffs and puffs it out with a thunderous snarl from its specialty fit headers and Flowmaster exhaust. This old school brute power is handled by a Tremec T-5 transmission and a Ford 7.8 rear end with 3.71 gears. The interior is set up just as serious as the rest of the car with tan vinyl racing buckets, roll bar and 4 point racing harness. The exterior is finished in white with a simple wide single painted blue stripe down the center. Subtle visual clues that this is no ordinary Miata are the raised hood and 225 width rear tires. This Monster Miata is a true driver with its turn key drivetrain and complete interior. It will be the pride of any enthusiast with a keen interest in being different. To view this car in person visit the Orlando showroom or call at 407-771-2000 for more information. HD photos and video can be seen at www.gatewayclassiccars.com

1940 Ford Deluxe Flower Car

1940 Ford Deluxe Flower Car


Engine: Flat Head
Transmission: 3-Speed Manual
Mileage: 21,896 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is excited to offer this very unique 1940 Ford Super Deluxe Flower Car once again. If you're scratching your head thinking "I've never seen one of those before!" It's probably because you most likely have not. This 1940 Ford Deluxe was produced by the Ford Motor Company and then converted by The Eureka Manufacturing Company of Rock Falls Illinois into a flower car. Essentially starting out as a 5-window coupe, the conversion lengthened the chassis and the convertible rear casket compartment was created with metal rollers and pins to store the side rails that would hold flowers in place. This car had a dual use of being enclosed with the original canvas cover for the less elaborate funerals and having the rear compartment cover removed and side rails installed for a more elaborate send off. Flower cars were popular during the middle of the century and now are rarely seen in modern funerals. While most if not all of these conversions done by Eureka were on General Motors vehicles this one being a Ford and not a Packard or Cadillac makes this highly obscure and is believed to be the only one ever made. This car was purchased new in 1940 and check out the original photos of the car being delivered. Now fast forward 78 years and you will notice that not much has really changed. This is an original, unmolested, unrestored car that still retains the original paint, original canvas cover, original interior and powertrain. Now is your chance to own something that nobody else has and enter the world of Professional Car Collectors. Surely this will be the only one at whatever show you attend and thanks to years of maintenance and recent service work performed this car is ready for the road and will cruise at highway speeds. New parts include brake shoes, wheel and master cylinders, brake hoses, rear axle seals, new points set, fuel tank, fuel pump and carburetor overhaul. Located in our Chicago showroom, this 1940 Ford Deluxe Flower Car can be seen including an HD video and pictures at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1993 Mazda RX7 Turbo

1993 Mazda RX7 Turbo


Engine: 1.3L Twin Turbo
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 84,893 ( undocumented )

This 1993 Mazda RX7 Turbo is for sale in our Louisville Ky showroom. The Rotary engine was revolutionary for its time and what many thought would be the direction of the automotive industry. Like many new things they just did not quite catch on but there were some really neat Mazda’s that would take advantage of these high revving high horse power engines. The 93 RX7 turbo is the one that most remember. With a 14 second quarter mile time they were Rockets straight out of the box. This black beast is a great example why so many have fell in love with these tuner classics. The black has been the best-looking color on these rear wheel drive monsters with the taillights blending into the rear end. They still look super modern even if it is 25 years old. The tan interior is another nod to the classic 90’s look and still shows extremely well. Although the car has a little over 84k miles on it the rotary was replaced with a reman one from Mazda which only has a little over 26k miles on it with receipts included in the sale. The Excedy stage one clutch was installed in august of 2016 but with less than 2000 miles on it since then this 93 RX7 is ready for the open road. With the car having a clean and clear Auto History report verifying the mileage and no accidents this has to be one of the best 7’s around. Sounds almost too good to be true yet the best part of it all is the current owner is only the second and bought the car in 95. It really is a great opportunity to own one of these ultra-fun extremely rare sports cars that are doing nothing but going up in value. Options on this 1993 Mazda RX7 Turbo include; AM/FM Radio with CD player, GPS, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Windows, Anti-Lock Brakes, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Driver Airbag, Leather Interior, Power Sunroof, Aluminum Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires. This 1993 Mazda RX7 Turbo can be seen, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com, call at 812-294-1555 or email Louisville@gatewayclassiccars.com for more information.

1985 Mazda RX7 13B

1985 Mazda RX7 13B


Engine: 1.3L R F
Transmission: Five Speed Manual
Mileage: 92,293 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE for sale right now in our Arizona showroom. Mazda first offered the revolutionary ‘Wankel’ rotary engine powering this RX-7 in 1978. The engine defied the norm with its design by featuring a triangular rotor that revolves around the combustion chamber instead of the traditional pistons, resulting in a much smaller displacement. On top of this, the engine was so light and compact that it could be mounted behind the front axle and meant the RX-7 had a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Following the initial success of the 12A engine, Mazda introduced the slightly higher displacement 13B rotary engine with a larger output of 135hp that was exclusive to the GSL-SE in 1984/85. Paired to this peppy motor is a responsive 5-speed manual transmission and unique to the GSL-SE over base model RX-7’s is limited slip differential, larger brakes and distinctive wheels (the owner has stated he will include these original wheels with the sale). Our RX-7 for sale right now in our Scottsdale location is quite possibly the best example I have ever seen, and I grew up seeing these cars all over the place on the West Coast in the 1990’s! The car has been repainted in its original silver, it features a custom Kenwood stereo with oversized speakers behind the seats and all windows have been tinted meaning you will look extra cool driving this retro Japanese coupe! The Carfax shows that this car has spent its entire life in California and Arizona (southwest car) and has 92,293 original miles (mileage cannot be verified by GCC). The good news for perspective buyers of an RX-7 is that prices for these probable future collectibles remain affordable. Now is your chance to pick this usable, practical classic for a great deal! For more information on our 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE for sale please call our helpful and knowledgeable sales team at (623) 900-4884 or email us directly at scottsdale@gatewayclassiccars.com

1983 Mazda RX7 GSL

1983 Mazda RX7 GSL


Engine: 1.2L 12A Rotary 4BL
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 46,011 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer a super clean 1983 Mazda RX-7 GSL. When talking about Japanese sports car, it's impossible not to mention the RX-7. Mazda first offered the car in 1978 with a revolutionary engine. The Wankel rotary was an engine which defied the norm with its design. The engine has no pistons, but rather a triangular rotor which rotates around the combustion chamber. The result is a much smaller displacement than the typical piston engine. This RX-7 sports a 1,146cc 12A rotary engine. This engine produced just over 100 horsepower, but was lightweight which allowed the car to have an incredibly balanced 50/50 weight distribution. The entire car was under 2,500 pounds, so there's no doubt why they handle on rails. This particular example is a well maintained 46,010 mile car which is a total survivor. This car comes complete all maintence records since new, including dealer delivery info, and the window sticker. With only two owners and a clean history, this is one for a collector. The color scheme is an attractive dark silver over red cloth interior which is rather fetching. In case you forgot you were in a sports car, the dash features a large center mounted tachometer and the console houses the 5 speed manual transmission shifter. Backing the 5 speed manual transmission is a limited slip differential. This is a true sports car which will continue to appreciate in value. You can see this 1983 Mazda RX-7 in greater detail in our Dallas showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 817-310-9400 or dallas@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.
