After much soul searching and deliberation, I've finally had to bite the bullet and, reluctantly admit that it's time to let my little rag top go. It's either that or never go out with both wife and dogs again (2 seats just aren't enough).
So, what do we have?
This is a lovely Mazda MX-5 Eunos Auto in Silver with a black hood. First registered in May 98, this has had two previous owners prior to my stewardship. The first lady had it for nine years and the second lady owner, a Reverend from Ely, had it from 2007 until I acquired it in April 2017.
Since then, I've put in leather seats, a bigger, more effective wind deflector and a chrome roll bar, (the original deflector and seats are available with the car if the next owner wants to return the car to stock) it also has an after market face-off CD/ radio with aux lead. I have an original radio cassette from a Mk2. 5 that I have always intended to install but have never got around to doing so. This can also go with the car if required.
The car has been stored for each winter that I've owned it and is only really used between April and September; It's currently SORN and in storage. There is an expensive waterproof car cover and boot luggage rack that are also available to the new owner.
Mechanically the car is sound and had a fully service with it's last MOT in September 2020. There is a list of advisories which all relate to some corrosion on the suspension arms (none of which is noted as serious). In fact, the inspector noted that this was a very clean, rust free example. The hood is in good condition with no rips or tears and has a heated glass rear window (no nasty Perspex to yellow and crack). Unfortunately, there isn't much service history with the car, the previous owner wasn't very fastidious about such things but, since I've owned it, it has had servicing carried out at regular intervals. I have no idea if the cambelt has ever been changed but, at the last service the mechanic said that everything was in good order. At that service, it also had new rear callipers and pads fitted.
I've listed the mileage at 70000, it's a bit less than this as it was at 69256 when serviced and MOT'd and went into storage shortly after. It's currently stored at an RAF base, so an prospective buyer can test drive it without it being taxed.
All in all, a cracking little two seater ready for the summer. As I'm writing this, the birds are falling out of the sky with sunstroke, so what better time to get behind the wheel and get the wind in your hair.
