1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata Vehicle Description

Price slashed! First-year Miata B Package (headrest speakers, power windows, air conditioning, and cruise control). 2-owner NorCal car in exceptional condition; AutoCheck Certified accident free with an AutoCheck Score of 48 (versus 13-37 norm). Never tracked nor abused. NEW in past year: quality full paint job, wheels, tires (195/50/R15 Dunlop Direzza DZ 102), transmission, air horn, catalytic converter, AC condenser, radiator, clutch master, mass air flow meter, cam and crank seal, rear transmission mount, full-featured Kenwood stereo deck, and much more. At 138k miles: timing belt, water pump, cam seals, and drilled brake rotors. The seats are from a 1993 Limited Edition (which was black with red leather). Seats just re-dyed.

Automobile Magazine wrote in 1989: "This car is alive. It breathes and flexes its muscles and generally behaves more like an organism than a machine... a flat-out blast to drive. Nimble, precise, even, smooth - wonderful traits all wrapped up into one neat little package... nothing short of continuous ear-to-ear smiles." Google Jay Leno's Garage MIATA for a GREAT 7-minute video on the history of the Miata including interviews with the designers.

The transmission is a jewel, with the shortest throw in production. The engine is a development of the robust B6-spec twin-cam 1.6-liter four; not terribly powerful, with only 116 horsepower and 100 lb.-ft. of torque, but very well matched to the rest of the 2,116 lb. car. It has camshafts designed that reward high revs. This car has been extremely well-cared for; everything works properly.

According to Hagerty Valuation Reports since September 2016 1990 Miatas in mint condition have gone from have gone from about $11,000 to nearly $16,000 and are expected to continue to rise. This car is offered for $4,900 firm. Note: photos taken without cleaning the car.
