Mazda MX-5 Eunos Roadster 1.6 V-special
1992 (K) British Racing Green with tan leather interior.
Originally manufactured 01/08/1992 this car was imported from Japan into the UK in 2005.
1.6 16v engine (115 bhp) with 5 speed manual transmission and limited slip diff.
Specification is as follows: PAS, ABS (rare on a Eunos of this age), air conditioning, electric windows, original Nardi wood rim steering wheel and gear lever knob, stainless steel sill covers, original tailored mats, tan tonneau cover, original alloy wheels.
Aftermarket additions include Cat 2 immobiliser, Clarion single disc cd player, chrome style bar, MPH speedo conversion and UK rear fog light conversion, RS sports coil springs, alloy pedals, red silicone spark plugs leads and stainless radiator grille.
This genuine, original V-spec is our own summer convertible and has a very interesting and relatively rare specification. It is in exceptional condition throughout and no expense has been spared in its upkeep.
Indicated mileage (a mixture of kms and miles) is the equivalent of 78,000 miles, which from the original import documentation and current condition we believe to be genuine.
The underside appears to have had anti-corrosion treatment at the time of import and as a result there is virtually zero corrosion to the important and vulnerable areas of sills, floor pan and rear wheel arches.
Nevertheless, as part of our refurbishment over last winter, we thoroughly descaled the underside and re-applied Tetrosyl corrosion inhibitor where required to the floor pan, chassis and vulnerable cavities such as sills and inside both front wings.
Mechanically this Roadster is in excellent fettle. In addition to a recent oil service, we have replaced the timing belt, tensioners and water pump, auxiliary belts and spark plugs. We have fitted a new Exedy clutch plate, cover and both the release and spigot bearings.
The engine is in excellent condition, with no noises or oil leaks. The gearbox is quiet, changes well and synchromesh is spot on. The limited slip diff is free from noises and oil leaks and performs as it should.
The car has 4 brand new shock absorbers fitted with slightly lowered and uprated RS brand sport springs. Discs and pads front and rear were recently replaced together with both rear brake calipers and brake pads.
The excellent original alloy wheels are straight and free from corrosion. They are fitted with four brand new 185/60HR14 Uniroyal Rain Expert tyres.
We have had both tan leather front seats refurbished and they are in excellent condition, as is the rest of the interior, with no major marks, rips or tears. Within the last year we have replaced the vinyl hood and door and headrest speakers.
There is no evidence of previous accident damage and the body work is free of marks and dents. As can be expected of a 23 year old car, it has had some paintwork in the past but the finish and shine is extremely good.

Overall this is a genuine and mainly original Eunos v- spec in exceptional condition that will provide the next owner with many years of reliable and corrosion free top down motoring. It is not to be confused with the many inferior, tatty and mucked-around with examples advertised - and we know exactly how many absolute dogs there are out there as it took us 6 months of looking to find a proper (and properly described) example.
