Cool The Rarest RX7: Joe Maddox Super Rare 1/100 1989 FC3S GTUs RX7 2JZ GTE VVTI Build

This is going to be a fun thread! I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick:
There are 1500 10AE Turbo II rx7's that were made in the USA. They are rare. There are even less of the RHD Infinity models made at around 1400. There are only 1100 GTUs models made out there.

However models are not what make a car rare, it is the Vin number. While the model sets the car apart, there are models that had factory mistakes and are one offs. These cars are a sub class to the class they are in. So while the rares FC is the last year production 1992 vert at 150 models, there are less of the GTUs models that DID NOT get a NEW vin number when released.

The GTUs had 1100 of them made. They were supposed to be Turbo II models but the factories ran out of motors. Mazda said that they should be sold as a custom model. The GTUs. All the goods of a turbo without the turbo motor. Out of these 1100, 100 of them produced in 1989. The other 1k in 1990. The ones that were not restamped with a new vin number are "K" stamp models and are the rare ones. The rest are L stamps.

Out of the K stamp 1989 models there are three options for colors. The most common was the Red on black, the most desired was the black on black. However the rarest was the 1/7 produced white on blue interior.

I saved and am building the rarest 1/7 1989 K stamp GTUs!
