1993 Mazda Miata

condition: fair
cylinders: 4 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 195000
paint color: black
size: sub-compact
title status: clean
transmission: manual
type: convertible

Black and tan 1993 C-package - 5 speed, hardtop, 195K miles - clean title and current registration

Hardtop not sold separately.

the good:
unmolested, untracked, stock and complete
straight body
hard top from 1990
good tires and nice 14" BBS
runs and drives, stops and steers like you'd expect
stereo and headrest speakers work
rebuilt and resealed head
new water pump, timing belt, alternator/waterpump belt
new battery

the bad:
195K miles
airbag light flashing
power steering pressure line leaks, so I removed the belt. Drives fine without PS.
rear end (working VLSD) is noisy. Spare open rear end from 1990 included.
AC not working (system is complete, clutch doesn't engage, probably low on refrigerant but I haven't checked)
ignition switch a little fiddly
no centercaps

the ugly:
the paint (clear failed - get it painted for $500 (?) or live with it)
the seats (need covers and some foam work - covers are only $100)
the soft top (complete but ratty - replacement top is about $200)
steering wheel (recover or replace)

the story:
This car came to me pretty much as you see it a month ago. Haven't completed the transfer of title because it wasn't it wasn't running due to blown headgasket, therefore not smogged. Signed transfer with lost title from seller to me on hand. Plan was to transfer to me non-op status in March when the registration is up.

I fixed it and now have it up for sale.

I can get it smogged for committed buyer and then do another bill of sale/transfer of title. Or I can get it titled to me and then transfer to you without the title in hand. Or we can work something else out.

This is a nice, complete, but well-worn car ready for someone to do something with it. I'd keep it, but I already have another Miata, so this one has to go.

For the right price, I'll include some spares - head, intake, injectors, AFM, coil and wires, transmission - all with 60K on them.

Please include phone number when writing.
