Selling the Miata that I bought from IAAI. It was rear ended. It is a 1990. 

Asking $2,000  

Pro's

-Borla Exhaust

-Unknown brand, wrapped header

-Koni Shocks

-H&R springs

-Drilled and slotted rotors

-Top in good shape

-Runs and drives good (I have only driven it about 3 times)

-Procar seats

 

 

Con's

-Some Rocker rust

-Still a small dent in rear from wreck

-No Finish panel

-Seats bolted directly to floor (PO drilled multiple holes)

-AC delete 

-Depowered Steering rack

-Still some red paint marker left on rear window on top (from salvage auction)

-Hood Pins

-Trunk alignment is not 100%, looks good from outside but had to space out latch

- Replacement bumper is faded and has a crack in it that I zip tied. 

-Radio may or may not be working

-Toggle switch for radiator fans.

 

Misc-PO said that the car only had 112k on it, but he switched the cluster after the wreck because he had a custom one in it that he was going to put in his new car. So now reads around 180k, I had contacted him through face book before I bought the car at auction.

It is inspected and road legal with a rebuilt title. 

I can take pictures of whatever you want.

Where in Ohio are you? If the parts car shell is salvageable I might be your guy.

If you could send some pics of the worst rust to awgrannis at gmail that would be great.

Can you either text or talk this afternoon? Not sure when I can get over there so if you can be flexible on pick up this could work.

Also, Axe - I'm interested in the drivetrain stuff, so if you're not maybe we can work a deal. Let me know.

The drivetrain is why I want it too, sorry.

If either of you end up with it and "drivetrain" means left over subframes I will totally buy them off you.  And maybe the LED lights because they would look sweet on the Challenge car project.   If you both can't make it work I would like to get in line.

In reply to nocones :

I'm buying it and I've got a spare rear subframe. Thing is, it's hard to tell how crusty this subframe is in pictures. I'll have a better idea this weekend and if it's OK I'll sell you the spare I have. The LED lights I'll definitely sell you.

I suppose this is assuming Robbie wanted the engine, trans and diff - not the subframe so as not to skip him.

Hahaha no worries all. I was interested in a challenge budget friendly engine/trans/ECU/harness/radiator. No need for diff or subframes, but I was planning on having the extra etc stuff like brackets and connectors and hoses.

Another cheap Miata will come up, I'm not worried.

I don't actually need the subframes or A-arms.  Just looking for uprights, ball joints, brakes, and possibly steering rack.  

We will get in touch let me know after you pick it up and assed it's condition.
