For Sale: 1993 Mazda Miata in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1993 Mazda Miata Convertible

Inspired by classic British roadsters such as the MG, MGB, and Triumph Spitfire, but engineered to be as reliable as a Toyota Corolla, the original Miata took the market by storm when it debuted in 1989 for the 1990 model year. The Miata is a small roadster from Mazda, its name is derived from the Old German word miete meaning 'reward'. 2- Miata is an African name meaning "first born" or "first lady" depending on the tribe you are from.

A third year roadster for consignment in good overall condition. This car has a fresh repaint, new carpet and upholstery, new factory wheels, a recent tune up, and some interior panels were redone to keep the inside looking like new. Small car with powerful engine, CHECK! Right color with convertible top, CHECK! Sporty interior with stick shifter, CHECK! Well optioned, CHECK! Turn the key and drive away with a smile on your face, CHECK...IT OUT!

Exterior
A recent respray in maroon to the tune of $5,000 shows in good condition drapes this British inspired sports car. A like new black canvas convertible top with a clear plastic rear window keeps Mother Nature at bay during inclement weather. Rounded bumpers, steel rockers, and all the bulbous design is all bathed in maroon with only the door handles left to shine. There are few faults throughout but all is looking good. Even the factory wheels present as new, because they are, and are wrapped with nearly new 195/50R15 blackwall rubber. Pop up hidden headlights keep the front of the car nicely aero smooth and integrated rounded tail lights wrap around the rear quarters. Small but mighty with some slipstream design added in.

Interior
Opening the top reveals a nice new charcoal black vinyl high back dual bucket interior passenger compartment. Everything is within arm's reach here, showing its original dash, leather wrapped and aftermarket covered steering wheel which turns power assisted steering, and an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo by Pioneer occupies the slot where the original once lived. New black carpet covers the floors and of course is in excellent condition. A carpeted dash topper gives some extra protection from the harmful UV rays and we note the interior side panels have recently been repainted for that factory fresh look. Let's go for a quick ride on a curved back uninhabited road!

Drivetrain
A 1.8 liter 4-cylinder twin cam engine is fed by EFI and on the back is attached to a 5-speed manual transmission, and all run very smoothly. 4.10 gears are powering the rear axle. Condition shows nicely, just a bit of corrosion on the cast pieces on this recently tuned up mill.

Undercarriage
Up on our lift we note some slight surface rust but certainly no invasive rust and all structurally sound unibody construction well sorted and sported out. Rear wheel drive with independent coil springs all over and power discs on all 4 corners. Nice floor pans and rockers and no real oil leaks to speak of so the garage floor will remain clean. Our consignor notes that the front tie rod ends were recently replaced.

Drive-Ability
Slipping inside I had shades of doing the same in my TR-6. Although this car assured me it was going to start! On our test track the car accelerated with ease, exhibited bias free braking and displayed handling on par with cars 4 times its cost. A wonderful drive was had with the wind in what's left of my thinning hair with all functions operational.

As the ad slogan goes ZOOM! ZOOM! ZOOM!, and this car was built before the writer of that campaign was born. All clean in maroon and looking like the original that drove out of the showroom in 1993.
