  • [For Sale] [NB] This should look familiar - 1999 NB - Green - Cheap - Great start for a track car

    I got a bit too ambitious with my summer project plans and don't have the time to build this car. The beginning of a great track car is all here.

    Just want my money back - MX5 ATL Price: CAR AND ROLL BAR SOLD!

    Car is a 1999 Mx-5 with 175,000 miles.
    Engine starts and runs very well
    Drives well
    A/C & heat work
    Has an LSD


    The good:
    Body is pretty straight
    Engine bay you can eat off of
    Runs well
    Has an LSD
    Interior is good for it's age
    It's perfect for a track build. Only pay for the parts you need.

    The bad:
    Needs a top - not usable, frame is fine but original cover is shredded
    Needs suspension - Adjustable KYBs in the rear and no-name shocks in the front
    Rear bumper has minor damage, possibly repairable
    Passenger front fender has a dent
    Tires are not recommended for a drive longer than getting it home (and even then I recommend caution)
    Engine leaks oil faster than the Mississippi river "leaks" into the gulf of Mexico - needs a rear main seal. Leaks enough to cause the clutch to slip after it's been running for 10 minutes. Drivable but needs to be repaired.



    Plan was to gut it, cage it, install race seats, seam weld it, sell off the interior, cruise, A/C, cruise etc. If this car is built well and lightened up it will be good for 1:34/1:35 laps at Atlanta Motorsports Park.

    To get to 1:34/1:35s at AMP I was planning to install:
    Tien Flex Z - Coil overs
    Hard Top
    Bolt in cage
    Kirky Race Seats
    Harnesses
    Splitter, Diffuser and spoiler
    Remove rear bumper
    Possibly cut front fenders for airflow or install side skirts
    Sticky tires


    Available separately from the car I also have a bolt in cage designed for an NA Miata but also drilled to fit an NB Miata

    Also have the better flowing NB2 exhaust header

        Bunch of interest in the cage, couple inquiries about the car. Back in town so time to play "let's make a deal!"
