Title: R100 - are they a myth?
Post by: Paul Mason on September 16, 2009, 09:18:42 AM
Hi All, does anyone have any stats on how many R100 coupes are still active in this country?
I know not many were originally imported in the first place.
Any info on where I could find one for sale or someone willing to be tempted to sell would be much appreciated.
Paul

3 R100\'s were officially sold in UK.
All probably gone now.
I did see for sale a Familia quite a few years back which was the 4 door saloon model that was sold in Japan only domestic market.
One or two in europe such as switzerland.

Hello Paul and welcome to Mazdarotaryclub which as the name suggests was founded for all Mazda Rotarys from old to new :cheers

Carl has already answered with most of the info I know,also as far as I know this was only from one dealership in Wales so not sure these were ever classed as "official" out in the world these were called  Familia R100\'s and were made from 1968-1973

Just yesterday some nice pictures went up from an overseas member of ours with R100\'s on the thread,
http://www.mazdarotaryclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59960



Also it may be worth contacting Multirotor on this thread if your real serious as this car may not have sold,
http://www.mazdarotaryclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48683&highlight=r100

As a Club thats now been around for 8 years you should find the search button on the top bar your friend for most things Rotary including the R100

Hope this helps

Carl,
 
I have personally seen 2 R100s (imported from USA) in a certain shed in Belgium. There is also another one 5 minutes walk from my current location in Germany. Originally purchased by VW in 1969. They are around and are available.
 
A bit more than one or 2 matey.

i am aware of what went on, been on here alot longer than this username ;)

i was trying to help the guy out but the questions been answered now.

i understand it caused grief to some but surely putting the site name in a swear filter comes across very childish and silly, they have helped me out a great deal with knowledge about our rx4 on where to get parts etc and i feel they could share more info on the topic stated

r100 is in fact the rotary COUPE version of the STA ( 1200 coupe )
later models are based on the STB ( 1300 coupe )

there is detail differences in the front panels and headlights and rear taillights
between the three

- also STA to STB there is differences in the front end swaybar types
the STA being more datsun like with a floating swaybar
 the STB uses the dual purpose swaybar/ control arm locator  
  and this STB arrangement follows through to rx2 and similar in 808
( ie a banana shaped cross member with control arms fixed rearward off a pin )

also,, r100 sold in aussie has 14 inch wheels and unique stud pattern different to the STA/STB

( in other markets i believe the r100 share the same pattern to STA/STB )

Sounds like you will almost certainly have to import one into the UK. Thank-fully around 95,800 R100\'s were produced. So they are still relatively easy to find and come up for sale regularly, especially in NZ,Australia and Japan. I personally have owned 2 R100\'s(M10A) as well as a 1200(STA) coupe and a 1300(STB) coupe. Expect to pay around 6,000 and 9,000 United Kingdom Pounds for a good example. JDM R100\'s are badged as familia. I know ALL the differences between M10A/STA/STB so I can help you avoid buying a replica M10A.

R100\'s were mass produced.
For a real investment I\'d go for the "real myth" The Mazda R130.
 
Bertone designed and extremely rare, only 967 produced. Perhaps only 20 still surviving worldwide. Only one known in Europe/UK. I have only seen one come up for sale every few years. This one is currently for sale at a bargain price. 8,035.733 GBP

Is not that rare to meet a R130 for sale and their prices are quite low, comparing to 110s, probably close to a descent R100.There is one currently for sale at yahoo.auctions.jp (search under RX87).  Some months before there was one for sale by j-spec.improts.au (or something).

In Europe most R100s were sold in Switzerland, followed by Belgium and France. For sure multirotor will know if there is anything availiable. US and to a lesser extend Canada are the best places for a car to import besides AU, NZ and Japan (sorry, I forgot the RHD case).
In Greece about 20 were imported, plus one sedan (Familia Rotary SS). Although I saw this car in flesh, something like 33-35 years ago, I cant remember if it was a LHD or a RHD car. I dont know any exports for the sedan model.

I am not a native english speaker, but I dont quite understand your expression. Is this a kind of order?
Anyway, I dont count them, but the last three-four years more than 3 different R130s appeared at j-spec.improts, priced between 20 to 30 thousand Au dollars. The one for sale in Japan right now reaches 1 million yen. If you search at "ausrotary" you will find plenty of information related with cars previously for sale.

Post by: Rot8r on October 09, 2009, 08:55:41 AM
Sorry I\'ll try and make myself clearer.
 
 Do you know what price was paid?
 
Actual Sale price = price paid to seller.
 
Sale price=money asked for by seller.

Post by: baltsiotis on October 10, 2009, 12:40:41 PM
No I dont. Guys from Australia and New Zealand might br more helpful to you.
I have to underline though that a fully restored Cosmo (110s), and in particular a very rare L10A car, is actually on yahoo.auctios.jp with a starting bid of 16 thousand euros and -I guess- a "buy it now" price of around 20 thousand. Cosmos are far more expensive than R130s.

I know this thread is old now but I just wanted to say we had an R100, NTW789J I think. It was my Dad\'s car. Kind of red/maroon colour, sorry i don\'t know the actual colour name. Sold it about 15 years ago but I think a chap in Essex is currently restoring it. You never know, the myth might become a reality... :)

Yes along with his Gen 1 and RX-3  he still has it but is short of a bonnet, apparently these were narrower than the piston equivalents  :3Confused

Nowadays there are still 4 R100\'s registered in Holland, 2 of them are still running, the other 2 do have engine problems, which 1 of them has been fixed
by me, Clive has seen this one at Rotarystock 2011 in Holland.

Here in Finland there is few nice Mazda 1300 for sale, which can be made to r100 clones. Unfortunatly, its not possible because are laws. And that is a shame.

I know that one gent here raced r100 back in 70´s with car he imported from Canada. It had 13b PP. I´ll try to find some pics if I can. :)

My old Mazda dealer mate, Alan Bryer, who is sadly not with us any more imported some when they were new
