Ventilated discs at the front and solid discs at the back install maximum braking confidence.

HISTORY FILE
This amazing example was registered new by Mazda Main Dealers, Robinsons Garage Ltd of Leicester, on the 17th September 1999. The first owner, Mrs Nicola Heatherley, owned the car for over 20 years until in 2020 she advertised the car for sale. Mr Michael Chawner, a Mazda MX-5 Owners Club member and avid enthusiast contacted her and promptly bought the car. With his vast knowledge of these iconic cars, he knew when he had found a good one! In January 2021 Mr Chawner saw a low mileage Mazda Mk1 MX-5 1.8iS being advertised here at KGF Classic Cars and knew straight away it was the exact model and colour he had coveted for years and so had to have it. The difficult decision to part with this Mk2 example was sweetened by the arrival of his Mk1 which became his tenth MX-5!

The history file consists of absolutely all handbooks, manuals and dealership point of sale literature along with three sets of keys neatly contained in the black leather Mazda wallet. The original service booklet is present and the most recent service entry was in 2020 at 18,595 miles and a documented cambelt and water pump change was carried out at same time. A further folder containing invoices and MOT certificates further document the care and attention this example has enjoyed through its life with just two owners and the 19,571 miles covered. Completing the history file is an original Mazda MX5 range brochure and price list. It is virtually impossible to find such an original, low mileage and low owner MX-5, and KGF Classic Cars are delighted to be able to present this stunning example ready for a new lucky custodian.

Trimmed in the standard flame retardant Black Cloth upholstery, (Code NA3), the interior is exactly how Mazda intended. Everything is co-ordinated and operates perfectly. The limited edition numbered plaque revealing this as number 273 of 300 reminds the owner of the exclusivity of this model. The high backed seats have adjustable integral headrests offering maximum comfort and support with only minor wear to the bottom of the drivers bolster. Dealer fit MX-5 scuff plates and carpet mats show slight markings having offered protection from new. The classic sports dashboard houses a cluster of crystal clear instruments that function precisely and are viewable through the expensive polished wooden Nardi Torini classic steering wheel. The tonneau cover, tool kit, wheel brace and covered space saver wheel are all present and spotlessly clean.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
To experience driving a well maintained and cared for Mk 1 MX-5 is a true motoring delight, especially in the most powerful 130bhp version. The lightweight 1.8 litre 16v DOHC engine sits low and behind the front axle to offer a low centre of gravity and centralised weight distribution making handling perfectly balanced and delightfully responsive. A top speed of 123mph and 0-60mph in 8.6 seconds is quoted. The close ratio short throw gearbox provides light and precise gear changes. Sparkling performance!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This exceptional Mazda has unique unmarked factory fitted 15inch alloy wheels which are shod in matching Dunlop Sport SP2000 195/50 R15 tyres with excellent tread remaining. Powerful disc brakes all round install maximum braking confidence.

This delightful very early UK Mazda MX-5 is finished in Silver Stone Metallic (colour code 3L). The paintwork boasts an attractive bright shine and polished finish. Minor age related markings and small imperfections can be seen upon scrutiny, not detracting from the overall excellent appearance. A welcome absence of excess applied underseal allows easy inspection of the very good underside condition. The common modification trend has thankfully been avoided, and this unmolested example is just as Mazda intended. The trim sections are all intact and the black canvas hood is immaculate.

The classic sports dashboard houses a cluster of crystal clear instruments that function precisely, and the leather trimmed steering wheel with white stitching is fully intact. The tonneau cover and original wheel brace, jack and toolkit are all present and even the factory sticker remains attached to the boot carpet! The no frills driver focused concept perfected by Mazda is simply wonderful, and this example upholds that notion perfectly.

With 113bhp available, a top speed of 115mph and 0-60mph time of 8.3 seconds is achieved. The engine bay is very clean with all factory plates and stickers intact, including the often lost bonnet underside stickers. The close ratio five speed gearbox provides short and positive gear changes. Wide grin motoring guaranteed!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This unmodified example retains its factory fitted 14 x 5.5j alloy wheels and correct Mazda centre caps, affectionately known as the ‘Daisy’ style. The wheels are in excellent order with no kerbing damage and only faint markings. Matching Yokohama 185/60R14 tyres fitted in 2016 are virtually as new. The space saver spare tyre is the factory supplied Bridgestone which is unused and has the coloured banding still visible. Ventilated front and solid rear discs install maximum braking confidence.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 22nd March 1990 just weeks after the UK launch of the Mazda MX5, this example is known to be a very early UK example and certainly one of the oldest remaining cars. All vehicles regardless of the market they were destined for were assembled at the Mazda plant in Hiroshima. Known to be build number 1738, this incorporates both the Miata for the Northern US market and Eunos for Japan, this example is reputed to be number 16 built for the European market and is a genuine UK car.

A large history folder contains many receipts and invoices for service work throughout and includes a documented cambelt, water pump, brake service and full service in 2016, less than 4,000 miles ago. In addition, there is every MOT certificate dating back to 1996 and two original keys. A wonderful useable Mk1 MX5, ready to enjoy as an ideal modern classic.
