When the 1990 MX-5 Miata hit showroom floors, Mazda did not anticipate it had unleashed what has become one of the most iconic roadsters in the world. At Don Mealey’s Sport Mazda, an Orlando Mazda dealership in Florida, fans of the popular roadster get a chance to take the latest model, the 2013 Miata, right off the showroom floor for a test drive. But what would it be like if you could take the very first model that started the legacy?
Right now, eBay user powellmw from Arizona, is currently auctioning off a practically brand new 1990 Miata that only has 27 miles on the odometer!
With the exception of a few scuffs, a couple of minor dents, worn out tires and a missing battery, this is as close to brand new that Miata enthusiasts will find with the first year model. The seller notes that it comes with the original manuals, slightly worn soft top, attachable hard top, and an extremely clean well maintained interior that makes this a must buy for true Miata devotees.
As of this post, with four days left there are 13 bids reaching $10,051 for this practically pristine coupe. Check out the auction for yourself to watch the bidding war unfold.
