Without question the most popular classic sports car in the UK but for some buyers, the original example is not easy enough to live with due to old-style mechanicals and electrics.
So the modern solution is to restore an original car but to integrate modern mechanicals and electrics the result being a great retro looking car that is far easier to drive with added reliability.
This is a great example being an original 1974 chrome bumper roadster that has been fully restored down to the bare metal shell in 2016 and then a fuel-injected 1840cc MX5 engine and auto gearbox fitted along with new brakes, suspension, exhaust etc.
The work has been carried out to a high standard by a well-respected restorer and many Mazda parts integrated into the build including the wiring loom, electrics, seats, all of which are superior items to the original.
Finished in Storm grey metallic the Burgendy leather interior is beautiful and the seats are very supportive and comfortable, she even has a touch screen media unit.
With 138bhp from the bulletproof twin-cam engine, the performance is great and surprisingly the modern auto gearbox complements the design making it a very easy package to live with compared to the original.
So in summary, if you love the idea of the classic car looks but want a stress free version to drive with modern reliability then this is an elegant solution.
