Default 1993 Mazda miata - $7500

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1993 Mazda miata for sale, in USA - Alabama.

Mileage: 15000 miles
Engine Size: 1.8


Asking price is $7500



Back up for sale since I'm about to move to Pinehurst, NC. I've always backed out of selling this car at various times because it's so much fun when I get to drive it. BUT, it's time to downsize. I'm not willing to ship the car out of the country. Buyer can arrange their own shipping if necessary. Factory seats are currently installed, but the race seats and mounts are included.

Serious inquiries only. We all know what the parts are worth. I'm not asking anywhere near face value. It's a well sorted car that I have driven to and from the track 2hrs away with no issues. It could easily be a DD.

My PCA national instructor said it was one of the best feeling DIY miata builds he had ever been in.

Price drop, everyone looses if I have to ship the car. Might as well pass on the savings of not shipping and try to get it sold.

Haven't had a recent compression test. I guess the positive is that I haven't felt like I need to get one. I'd say about 15k, and that's an overestimate.

I think you would be hard pressed to build one like the one I'm selling for the money. Others can chime in on this sentiment.

If I did it over again, I'd buy one like this or similar. Too many man hours in this thing.

I see an AC compressor. Is the AC still functional? How about power steering?

May I get a copy or a link to the video at Barber? My e-mail is [email protected] if you do not have it uploaded.

How long has the exhaust housing been leaking? Have you spoken with Garrett about having it repaired?

One last question for now: when will you be moving?

AC is not functional because there is a leak in the system. The exhaust housing has been leaking since I put the turbo on the car. It seems to be a leak between the WG actuator arm bushing and the housing. I don't like pulling the turbo because it's a pain, and since it hasn't had any problem holding boost target, I haven't worried about it. I move at the end of the month. Honestly, I'd probably see if dripping some black resbond in between the housing and bushing sealed it.

FYI

The car is pending sale.

Thank you for the information. It would be next weekend before I could make a trip to Huntsville. Please keep me updated about the pending sale.

Just for whoever buys it, replace those resistor-less spare plugs with resistor plugs ASAP. I have worked on way too many cars with electrical interference problems due to non-resistor plugs.

Clean car, GLWS.

There the same race plugs FM recommends. They have been in the car for over a year with no issues.

I agree though, some cars do get interference from resistorless plugs.

Car has a new home. Very nice guy, hope he sticks around the forum.
