1975 MAZDA RX-3

Win­ner of Best RX-3, and Best Orig­i­nal In­te­rior, Leigh Church’s Mazda RX-3 had a con­stant stream of ad­mir­ers. The body re­ceived a full baremetal resto, be­fore a re­spray in fac­tory brown. “The body

was in a ter­ri­ble state, but the in­te­rior wasn’t too bad. I ac­tu­ally ended up go­ing to Aus­tralia and wreck­ing and cut­ting up an­other RX-3 to source the much-needed parts re­quired for my one,” Leigh told us. We’re also told that this ex­am­ple in this trim is as orig­i­nal, and one of only eight in New Zealand, which

makes it rather rare.
