Just got back from a 3 hour round trip drive to pick up my new 88 RX. Goes to show after months of waiting and searching you will find it. 88 RX Full Time 4 Wheel, Turbo, LSD, Locking Diff, 5spd, Power Everything. Runs fantastic, needs some minor rust fixing and ding repair. Odometer says 87k, I'm positive that's not actual but odometer was reset at new engine?(Further investigation needed but who cares it's an RX, and exactly what I was looking for).

Spent $840 not great but not bad either, sorry it's late better pics tomorrow guys.

UPDATE: Took it in to the brother's shop for full engine inspection (compression, leak-down, etc)..Came back with spec and no problems, exactly what I wanted to hear! Seems the 87k on the engine is most likely correct. Don't get me wrong needs some work, seats need recovering, heat/air control isn't working (temp switch is stuck won't move), minor electrical gremlins, rust, and so on. But is mechanically sound. Updated my gallery with some much better pics...

Odometer 87k? Engine maybe, car I don't think so

cool. looks like you might have gotten a better deal than I even just had- 87 with 67000 for $675 but mine probably has more rust, although not too much visible on the outside.
