Good early examples finally seem to be gaining some traction in the marketplace but for collectors, though, ultraclean, low-miles early Miatas like this example are the most desired!Built on October 1, 1989 in Hiroshima, Japan, this car entered the US at Port Hueneme, California and was sold in Port Midlothian, Texas (Gulf Coast Mazda). The original Kansas family owners had the Miata all the way to 2014 and then sold it to the previous owner in neighboring Kansas City. There are not many unmolested stock earl NA MX-5s left like this one with fewer than 30,000 original miles on the clock!The 1.6L inline four-cylinder engine uses aDOHC16-valve alloy head with a lightened crankshaft and flywheel to allow a 7,200-rpm redline. An aluminum sump with cooling fins is an unusual feature of this engine. The standardtransmissionwas a five-speed manual, a unit derived from the one used in the Mazda 929. The gearshift was the subject of close attention during development, with engineers told to make it shift in as small a gear pattern as possible and with minimal effort.The cars original Crystal White paint and associated trim is in excellent shape, with only the most minor of blemishes possibly visible upon very close inspection. The glass panels are in excellent order, too, and it has a new Robbins black vinyl folding top (installed October 30, 2015) with no rear window defroster but the backlight is glass, not plastic. The cars lights are in great condition, as are the factory alloy wheels, surrounded by General Altimax RT tires, size 185/60R14 at all four corners. This little roadsters body panels are all solid and straight, the engine bay is very tidy and the cargo area and battery are both in good order. Driver convenience features include air conditioning that still blow cold, power steering and power brakes ("A" Package).Inside, the cars original black bucket seats are in very excellent shape, with matching carpet in good order. The black instrument panel is in one piece and crack-free and the four-spoke steering wheel houses the drivers airbag. Looking for the remote fuel filler release? Its within the center storage binnacle, under the drivers right arm. The door panels, mirror glass, center console and shift lever are all in very good condition. Rounding off the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with CD player and cassette.The body shell of the NA was all-steel with a lightweightaluminumhood. Overall dimensions were 156inches in length, 65.9inches in width and 48.6inches in height. Without options, the NA weighed only 2,150lbs.Drag c fficientwas indicated as 0.38.

According to the AutoCheck report, this vehicle has not been in any accidents since new or had any other issues reported.Competition to this Mazda in 1990 included Alfa Romeos Spider, BMWs 318i Cabrio and Mercurys Capri Convertible.If you remember those lazy, hazy summer days in the early 90s, before you married and before you had children, when Mazda made a two-seater that had all the fun of British MGs and Triumphs without the maintenance hassles, you really need to come check this performance enthusiast roadster out in person before someone else buys it!This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri.
