Miata 1990

Title Status --
Exterior Color Classic Red
Interior Color Black


This 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata is a bold red drop-top representing everything we love about the legend. After all, this is the first model year for the Miata, and not only is it in the ideal color, but as you look through the details, you will see it\'s loaded with the best features. And since it certainly has collectability, you\'ll also appreciate the low mileage and exceptional paperwork.

Mazda calls the color Classic Red, and so it just seems fitting for a groundbreaking car like this. In fact, when you close your eyes and think about the first Miata, you remember advertisements and showrooms all featuring a bright red example. So it\'s nice to see one that shows all signs of being the factory paint. This has seen some age and use over the years because this car has been enjoyed on the road. But you\'re probably thinking about doing the same, so it\'s nice to have a carefree finish. But the full story is also about how you get a very clean and complete car that only averages about 2200 miles annually. This Mazda is an icon because it celebrates the European sports cars that inspired it. You see it in details like the rear luggage rack and factory alloys resembling minilite wheels. This was even upgraded to a removable hardtop - an option you say on everything from MGs to Alfa Romeos.

Just like the exterior, the black interior is about driver enjoyment. You have well-bolstered bucket seats, a leather-wrapped airbag steering wheel, power steering, a slick shifter, and crisp/clean full gauges. There are nice features that not everyone got, like power windows and cruise control. The stereo has even been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with Bluetooth. While it\'s nice to have the hardtop, the soft black top is the one we bet you\'ll use the most. It fits snugly when you want it, and you can take it down with just one hand while still in the driver\'s seat. And because there\'s cold-blowing air conditioning, we bet you\'ll open this one up to the world even in the middle of summer.

Under the hood is what makes this car a legend. The fuel-injected 1.6-liter DOHC motor has the same kind of rev-happy and lightweight style you love in the Europeans... but now it\'s backed by Japanese durability. This well-maintained powerhouse fires up eagerly, and the five-speed manual transmission puts you in the center of the action. This is a pretty nimble car, and the fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and optional limited-slip differential make this one of the sharpest tools for the road.

The sale has a terrific paperwork file, including the original window sticker, dealer invoice, owner\'s manual, and maintenance records. We like this drop-top because it started a revolution. So you can enjoy this turn-key driver\'s car as is, or maybe you give some TLC to make it the low-mileage and well-documented collectible you\'ve been searching for. Call now!
