1985 mazda rx-7

Is 1400 dollars to much for a 1985 mazda rx-7 with 160,000 miles?

You have to give us wayyyyy more info than that!

It all depends. We can’t see or drive the car. How are we supposed to evaluate it?

If the car is in good shape it may be a bargain.

If it’s been pounded to within an inch of its life, and is mostly rust, then it’s not such a bargain.

I’d want to know a lot about the car’s maintenance history with this many miles.

A properly-cared-for 13B rotary engine can last a LONG time, but one that’s been ignored and/or abused may be ready to give up the ghost in a week or two.
