Default 1994 Mazda Miata - $950

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1994 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Nevada.

Engine Size: 1.8L


Asking price is $800



Administrator note: Can you please delete my previous sale thread in the "parts" section? I didnt realize my mistake until now.


Hey gays, I am selling my 94 miata because it makes me mad and sad all at the same time. I was converting it back to N/A after financial troubles and needed to part out my trubo goodies. The engine is good and has great compression, was in the process of replacing the valve seals, but just cant find time to do it. Everything is there to make it run again, but I need to finish my supra up before I get another miata (it will be a 5 speed this time around). So atm, it only has a dented and badly body filled front driver side fender, but the title is clean and that is the only damage to it.

Clean nevada title

under 90k miles on chassis, under 80k miles on motor.

Comes with my 2.5" free flow exhaust w/ brand new "racing" headers
Brand spankin new zeuxes street tires
random left over turbo bitties
RX-7 460 low imp injectors already installed with my resisted harness.
new valve seals in box to install and run
stock motor with exhaust/intake cam swap.
Walbro 225hp fuel pump

Buy it, part it out, spread the penguin across the map, or just fix it and daily it. I drove the **** out of this, turboed just fine, just blew the valve seas as I ran into trouble financially at the worst possible moment. Never drove it hard, but it was my daily driver to get to work while the wife used the lexus. I just feel super bad that I cant get around to fixing 16 tiny valve seals at all this year, but if no one takes it imma fix it next year and sell it for more to get a 5 speed to turbo and sunday drive it.

Right now the funds will be donated to my MK3 7MGTE 700hp target foundation, where half of the money will go toward bribing the brain to build me an MS for the car.

$800 for car

$550 for hardtop~ sold


Also, it had the hardtop since I bought the car from the first owner. The soft top is in pristine condition, with a zippered glass window. I still have the soft top cover for when it goes topless.

Sounds like it's not driveable currently? Is it an automatic?
I'm very interested in the hardtop, PM inbound

no pm yet, and yes. It is automatic, and good engine not assembled to running condition, realistically to get the car running with old valve seals, it just needs the cams bolted back down, and the timing belt installed.

shipping something like a hardtop from what i understand is costly, like 220 bucks additional.

Hell if you were closer I would take the car and the hard top. I just have no desire to deal with the logistics of getting it all to me on the East Coast.

I am seriously considering flying out, handing you a nice stack of $100 bills and driving it back. What would it take to get you to put it back in running order?

Honestly, hopefully getting the valve seals replaced, cams bolted on, timing belt installed (newish timing belt, about 100 miles on it), oil changed (been sitting), radiator hoses put back, coolant, some wire cleaning under the steering wheel, and overall cleaning/dusting, Honestly. I dont make an absolute because it is a CAR, they do spooky things to break promises.

Everything is there, including new supertech valve seals.
After thinking I screwed up the headgasket, or warped the head magically (smoke urrrrverywhere); I replaced the headgasket, no avail, so I **** a brick and did a part out of my MSPNP, and turbo bits in hopes to cover my bills and hopefully get the head machined or whatnot, until a week after I gave it a compression test: got almost to full compression, but oil coating in evil cylinder 4.

Ran the car again, smoke appeared every time I decelerated. My next step was valve seals. Parked the car, drained the coolant and got to the point where I can replace the seals, but never did. So after a year I decided to put it up for sale as a non-running car.

It'd take a keg a beer to get me to make time to get the car in running order, but I just might.

I also have a good core head that I was tearing down to do a port polish, I will throw that core in.

I really want to get my supra up and running, and my paychecks are strapped for bills and holidays, so this sale goes 100% to my 600hp+ MK3.

thats shipping alone, not insurance and pro packaging. Thats an extra 30-40 bucks. Just called them to be sure.

this picture bothers me the most: I have measured SO many times to see if that wing was straight, and it was, but in the photo it looked crooked... but by math and measurement, it was straight! So I took it off the car to sooth my OCD.

Bah, a month ago I would have jumped in and had this shipped north. I spent the money on guns though

Anyone want a nice AR?
