Exclamation 1973 Mazda RX-2 - Bridgeport 13b Rotary engine - With EXTRA Parts & LOW miles

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this (let me know where to move it to if so.)

1973 Mazda RX-2 w/ Bridgeported 13B Rotary Engine.

eBay listing: Mazda Other Coupe 2 Door | eBay

Short Description:
It is with a heavy heart that I have to sell this car. My only hope is that it goes to someone that will take care of it and build it back up to a beautiful running state. When running, it was pushing 300hp

***Seller Notes: “1) Engine turns over but does not start. 2) Some surface scratches on the paint here and there (good shape for a '73 classic). 3) Driver seat has rips, as does the center arm-rest. 4) Some rust starting at the bottom of the rear window seal. 5) Missing the radio. 6) Performance street tires with lots of tread.”***

The car is non-running currently - I have been told by multiple gear-heads that it is most likely just the apex seals and and other minor rebuild things that need done. I currently don't have the ability to maintain it.

The Car's Story:
It’s been owned by my grandpa, my dad, and myself (and back and forth between us a number of times), and now it looks like I need to part ways with it. This Mazda has a few bumps and bruises but is in nice shape for being mostly original. It's had a roll-bar installed as well as other autocross features for racing, had a 13b bridge-ported engine installed and tuned by THE Louie Rivera at the Mazda-Honda Shop, it still has the original burnt orange paint and pin-striping, and when running can push some serious torque. All in all, I would love to keep it, but cannot afford to. So I would like to sell it to someone who I KNOW will take care of it, restore it, drive it, enjoy it.

Details and Extra's:
Mazda RX-2 1973 , original burnt orange paint (AO) with the cream-white pin-striping

• Bridge ported 13B said to have 300HP (ported by Louie from "The Mazda Honda Shop" (well known rotary shop);
