1990 Miata Hardtop coilovers, slotted rotors.

The Good: Miata with factory hardtop No rust Slotted rotors Coilovers (raceland with @ 4K miles) Rolled fenders (had 15" x 8" XXRs on it) Aftermarket 14” alloy wheels Newer tires Perfect rocker panels RX7 Air Flow Meter Cone Filter 118K showing (mileage exempt title) Aftermarket steering wheel

The challenges: Removed cracked rear finish panel Missing a few lenses Interior needs some attention, but is functional Dents here and there commensurate with age Needs exhaust Needs a tuneup Paint could be better One spark plug has been helicoiled, but seems to be working fine.

Summary: 1990 Miata this is as close to rust-free as I’ve seen. Unfortunately the previous owner riced it out a bit at the expense of maintenance. Several ways you could go with this: re-rice it if that’s your thing, restore it relatively easily with some used parts and a good tuneup, part it out or use it as a spec-miata shell. I simply don’t have the bandwidth to deal with this one. It’ll want to be towed as it’s not running well enough for road use, though a set of plug wires helped considerably. Timing will need to be checked and a coil pack that’s on it’s way may solve it (coil pack is included).

Transaction: The car is priced at $1200 without a top. The car with the hardtop is priced at $1950. Will consider partial trade for a softtop miata. I will not sell the hardtop separately without the car selling first. The car is located in Arlington, VA. Cash only, no shipping.

I understand that there are no guarantees but would it make a 700 mile drive?

Honestly: no. but it sold, so you won't have that inner turmoil of considering risking it.

Thanks for the interest, everyone. It's going to a greater good.
