Mileage. Under 29,000 miles from new
MOT expiry date. 31/05/2020

From the collection of a gentleman racer, this MX5 was purchased by the vendor in 2015 and has since enjoyed faultless long-distance tours to Le Mans, North Wales and the West Country of England, with the odometer reading just under 29,000 miles from new. In previous ownership the hood was replaced and more recently so too the exhaust silencer. Otherwise this car - the desirable, early and more powerful 1.6 litre 115bhp UK derivative delivered new to J.J Leadley Ltd, Mazda dealers of Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts. - is a rare example of originality. The Classic Red paint finish and interior - complete with period-correct Clarion radio - show their age well. The history file contains book pack, MOTs, sundry bills and a V5C registration document. Selling only to fund the rebuild of a pre-war car, J784 CAU is the epitome of a modern classic - preserved and ready to be enjoyed. A golden opportunity!
