Selling my MX5 Mk1 1.6 SE. Mileage is about just over 138,500 miles
This is an original UK spec 1992 limited edition SE in black with a tan interior and a black hard top.
It has been rebuilt and restored over the last three years.
It is in a very good near original spec condition with a full MOT and no advisories and no corrosion and is ready to go.
This car was prepared by Carl Smith at CBS Autos for me to use and to tour somewhere in the UK a few times every summer…The car and me have done that and it is a fab car but i am going to move on to a new project. I know Carl well and this is the third mk 1 I have had from Carl over the last few years.
This car was bought from and prepared by CBS Autos for me in 2017. I asked Carl to find me another very solid MX5 Mk1 and he had this one “out the back” and he (and Ant) completed the prep work over a number of months in 2017. I wanted this particular car kept original, unlike my others, and I have still kept it pretty original and even found a set of genuine original SE alloy wheels which i had refurbed and they are on it and are in great shape.
This is a great car structurally/underneath with great sills and both rear arches are spot on. The car is in my garage.
To prepare the car for me they fitted and had painted two new front wings and sorted any other issues to get me and the car going.
The spec and work done by Carl and me over the last year or so is as below…I have probably forgotten some bits…
