Mazda Parkway Rotary 26 Minibus



The rarest rotary Mazda……….is a minibus!?


You read that right! In 1974 Mazda released (in Japan only) the Parkway Rotary 26 Minibus with a 13B rotary unit that came from the RX-3.



  • 13B Rotary with a big Hitachi four-barrel carburettor
  • 99 kW @ 6500 rpm
  • 179 Nm @ 4000 rpm
  • 125 km/h maximum speed
  • Radio (a luxury for a 1970’s minibus)
  • Powerful heaters for those cold winter commutes
  • Available in Super-Deluxe (13 seater) or Deluxe (26 seater)



The Parkway 26 was a great minibus, the more popular option at the time was the 2L in-line four petrol engine, 2.5L and a 2.7L diesel engines.

Only 44 examples were made with the 13B Rotary engine.



Today, it is believed less than a handful of the Parkway Rotary 26’s have survived. One can be found in the Mazda Classic Museum in Augsburg, Germany.


Another one is in the Mazda Factory Museum in Hiroshima.
