On the Surface: This 1990 Mazda MX-5 is a rare Mark 1, equipped with a wood rim steering wheel and gear knob. Its exterior is finished in the much sought-after white colour.

Maintenance: This MX-5 comes with a comprehensive history file. The maintenance records include MOT certificates spanning from 1997 to 2024, providing a thorough documentation of its roadworthiness over the decades. What truly sets this MX-5 apart is the extensive collection of invoices, totaling approximately £10,500. These invoices, organised by year, cover various maintenance and repair expenses, showcasing the dedication to keeping this classic in prime condition. Notably, one standout invoice from 2022 details an expenditure of £896.55, encompassing MOT, repairs, parts, and labour. It is worth noting there is a split in the rear window.

History: The inclusion of MOT certificates from 1997 to 2024 provides a chronological account of the car’s health over the years. The detailed invoices, dating back to 1991 are also very intriguing, displaying all work carried out over the last 34 years.

The Model: The original MX-5 was launched at a time when small roadsters had almost disappeared from the market, with the Alfa Romeo Spider being one of the only comparable models still in production. However the Spider was not a direct competitor of the MX-5 due to its higher price tag. That left the Mazda as the successor to a host of discontinued sports cars such as the MG B, Triumph TR7, Triumph Spitfire, and Fiat Spider.

The MX-5 was officially introduced in February 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. The first generation MX-5 would go on to be the most popular of the four MX-5 generations by a wide margin.

Sale Insight: This car is for a buyer seeking a rare and maintained 1990 Mazda MX-5, this model offers a documented history and a fully comprehensive history file, complete with MOT certificates and detailed invoices totaling around £10,500.
