The car is a 1991 H Reg UK Mk1 MX5 in red with PAS but no A/C. The car has a genuine 64k miles on it (I have the full MOT history to prove). Because I was conscious of the low mileage on the car I've tried to keep it as nice as possible. As soon as I bought it, I had a brand new MX5parts roof fitted at the cost of around £270, and every time I've washed it I made sure to unblock the sill drains. I'm pleased to say the car is solid underneath. I also replaced the aux belt and PAS belt very recently as they were a bit noisy. The cam belt/pulleys were replaced in 08/12. The car also had a new rear silencer (just last week) and 2 new rear tyres for its MOT.
The car now has a fresh MOT until the end of June 2014 and Tax until the end of Sept 2013 and is completely standard bar a K+N cone air filter setup which came on the car. It makes a nice noise under load The car is also HPI clear. I have a box file full of paperwork, receipts for this car which was passed on from the previous owner. The car has 7 previous owners.
BAD points: as with any car, especially one 21 years old, there are some minor bad points. The paint has faded in places and slightly pink, there are a few small parking dents,
Aside from that, its a great little car, it drives well and the gearbox is lovely. Currently it is my daily drive so mileage will continue to rack up until it sells...
Price is £1250 ono
