1996 Mazda MX5
I am regretfully selling my MK1 MX5 due to change of job and doing a lot more miles.
Here I have my 1996 British Racing Green 1.8 MX1 MX5 UK Spec, currently has my private plate on which I am in the process or removing, the original plate is N659 RAP so if you would like to check the history then you might need to use either reg to get the info up.
Mileage is 150,xxx, that is in miles but it had engine work in 2012 as mentioned below and still has lots to give, a test drive is welcome.
I'm just going to list the good and bad points so it makes it a simple ad. Best way to see if it's the right car for you is to come and have a look, have a jack and stands if wanting a good look underneath, I'm not here to hide anything.
MOT till 6th June 2020 and passed with only 1 advisory which was a anti-roll bar bush.
In 2012 the engine had a bit of a revamp, refurbed head, new clutch and a few other bits (can provide the receipt of work if needed)
Has been well looked after, the paint work is very good for its age, with a few blemishes here and there, but overall when clean looks the part.
Sills are solid.
It has pop up headlights, it's obvious but it's defiantly the best point.
Drives lovely, nice and smooth round the corners and still has plenty of power to give.
It has a heated glass rear window, with heating button, fuse and relay in place, just needs the loom from car to glass which is available online.
Has MK2 15" wheels with all good tread on.
I put a jap style side number plate holder on which I will include in the sale, it will come with it's original plinth though.
JVC bluetooth stereo.
It's a brilliant little car and I encourage you to have a look and test drive to understand how great it is.
Common problem of heat shield rattle slightly when accelerating is present.
Nearside rear arch has slight rust but not major.
Nearside sill has surface rust, it's not from the inside. Been told to sand it down, rust treatment, prime and paint will sort it but I don't have a good place to do that nor the time.
Seats stitching has come apart in places.
Some parts of the dash were painted by previous owner and have peeled slight, this is just the plastic surrounds.
I believe that is everything, there isn't anything seriously wrong with the car and it will be shame to let it go. Please feel free to contact with any questions, I do try to reply as quick as possible.
