Default 1996 Mazda Miata - $500

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1996 Mazda Miata for sale, in USA - Florida.

Mileage: 104,000 miles


Asking price is $500



Craigslist, no affiliation. Says "clutch needs replacement", but I bet you could swap the clutch master and slave cylinders and drive it home.

Quote:
Must get rid of this car today. Clutch needs replacement. Runs but won't drive without clutch. Clean title. Needs new top, but workable as-is. Project car, but loads of fun. 104k miles, new timing belt, water pump, hoses, aluminium racing radiator, plugs and wires, brand new A/C, good tires. Has been a daily driver until 2 weeks ago.

I e-mailed the guy twice (first time within 1 hour). No response. I happen to have my old 1.8 clutch sitting in my garage collecting dust and I'm local. Bummer.

That would be a perfect grassroots car.

Just to follow up. He e-mailed back several days later (me and a bunch of other people), to say he had received an offer for $500, but if someone wanted to offer more (starting at $800), he'd take the highest offer. He also attached pics and shared that the interior was shot. Pics showed several damaged panels. I decided to pass. Really can't stand people offering a price and then raising it after they get interest.
