Open to offers - and happy to show if you'd like to see the car in person.
Emissions legal - Inspected for emissions in Colorado.
This has been an ongoing project for several years. I swapped in the rx7 drive train and used a NA engine which runs like a top but is lacking the kick these have at lower elevations. Still better than the MG engine. I thought this car would qualify for classic tags. but it doesn't. Anyway. I've lost interest. clean title. but not currently insured or registered. The car is over 95% done but will need some minor work to be finished.
Starts. idles and runs great - was being built to be daily driver. fast on the road and handle very well. Has over sized sway bars front and rear. tube shock conversion in rear.
4 wheel disk brakes. limited slip 4:11 rear axle. 5 speed manual trans. new clutch. nbsp;
pressurized struts for hood and trunk (HUGE improvement)
Front suspension all rebuilt - urethane bushings throughoutNew holley 390 cfm carb (pretty expensive)Hella headlights
Stainless lines
Dual handle turning brakes
Runs cool
Autometer gauges4 point racing harnessesValentine one radar detector
12 speaker stereo w/ amps.
new tires. leather miata seats. new stainless brake lines. all new brakes. all new suspension soft top. but also has somewhat rare hard windshield. new dashboard. new carpet. new battery.  
Paint is decent but has a few trouble spots (trunk lid has bad paint).  
Aluminum door panels (swirl brushed) 
Chrome trim was painted black which in my opinion looked much better. but very chipped. I had a quote for $180 to have the trim. headlight rings. wiper arms and cowl vent powder coated.
There are 2 small dents in the body - and not sure why. but the paint on the trunk sux - bubbled in spots. Also the hood right up front has some paint flaws.  Radio was working and sounded like a concert hall. but quit.  
Here's a video to a cold start:

NO Paypal for ths auction. Would ideally like to have a face to face transaction. but can assist finding shipping if necessary.
