There was a red NA in the Fox Auto Parts u-pull-it lot in Belleville about 3 weeks ago. Fenders and doors were usable , but not perfect. Driver's door had a tiny bend on the leading edge where it had interfered with the fender.

Tempting. I was thinking about it but don't think I can get over the windshield frame.

broom the hardtop and you're at about $600 before repairs.   decent starting point, but that a-pillar and cowl structure definitely got whacked.

That’s a $500 Miata, not a $1500 one.

I have a feeling i’ll probably regret not calling about this one someday.  Today is not that day, tomorrow probably isn’t either.

Looks like a less than optimal Exocet donor with a free hard top.  Don't think I'd ever trust that windshield frame even if you could get it straightened out.

I would cut and splice in another one from a donor.

Looks like a starting point for a DP car, once you sell off that hardtop

Strange news, the seller just contacted me to look at it.  What should I offer?  $800, who in Michigan needs stuff.

In reply to akylekoz :

offer for car plus top should be less than FMV for top by itself.   Start at $500, but have $750 split between all your pockets.

What he said.  And if you get it for 500 i’ll give you $100 for the car and you can sell the top and double your money
