This DreamCar will stay with its owner for a little longer, thanks to the seller and all the bidders


DreamCarXchange is pleased to offer up for bid this one-owner, low mile 1996 Mazda Miata.  The selling dealer recently purchased this from the original owner.   This first generation Miata roadster is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and is finished in Classic Red over Black cloth interior and comes with a Black soft top.  The original owner purchased it from Flemington Mazda (original brochure and salesperson’s card included!) in April 1996.  It currently shows just over 30k miles and is a completely stock example.  The selling dealer recently completed a fluids change and replaced the clutch master and slave cylinders.  It has a clean CARFAX and is being sold with a clean New Jersey title.

This Miata comes with the standard Black cloth interior and is equipped with the Popular Equipment Package that included a Rear Subframe brace rod, power-assisted steering, leather wrapped steering-wheel, power mirrors, aluminum alloy wheels with locks, Torsen limited-slip differential (manual transmission only), cruise control, power windows and power antenna.  Everything is said to work as it should.

The previous 1.6 liter from the earlier first-gen cars was upgraded to this 1.8 liter in-line 4 cylinder engine for the 1994 and newer model year.  It was rated by the factory having 133 hp @ 6500 rpm and 114 lb-ft @ 5500 rpm of torque.  A 5-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels via a factory limited slip differential.

The vinyl soft top is raised and lowered manually and is said to be in excellent condition.

The selling dealer performed a maintenance prior to selling that included an oil & filter change, brake fluid flush and change, replacement of the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder, along with a tire rotation.  Some additional maintenance records can be found on the CARFAX.

The upgraded, factory 14″ alloys are wrapped with Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S tires, sized 185/60/14 and are said to have less than 2,000 miles on them.

The car comes with two keys, the owner’s manual, the original sales brochure and a car cover.

Fun fact:  The first generation Miata is the only one that has pop-up headlights!

The selling dealer states condition of both the interior and exterior of this Miata in excellent to outstanding condition with the exception of some dings in the driver’s side fender and rear quarter panel.  It is said to accelerate, shift, brake and ride as it should.  You can download the CARFAX from the Key Specifications table above and make sure you check out the 90+ additional pictures, including those of the undercarriage can be found in the “Pictures” tab above.  Here’s your opportunity to get an excellent low mile, one-owner first gen Miata, so bid often to make it yours!

Wow, here’s your chance to own an extremely original, very low mile first generation Miata with only one previous owner. It is extremely clean inside and out with the exception of some dings on the driver’s side (my guess is that is the side of the garage the kid’s bikes were stored). These are a blast to drive and have pop up headlights! Absolutely will not disappoint.

Got something to discuss?
