I have a half complete project in my garage, The frame is done for the most part, including the rear trns ( cut and wield from Miata 91) - attached picture when I did the test fit of the rolling frame.

As part of the project , I stripped a 91 Miata running car as donor. The sell comes Wheels, engine, ECU, brakes, clutch assembly, ,shaft, rear transmission, Wiring and even the ignition key ( :-) etc, basically all the donor parts needed to complete the project. I can also include the engine hoist if interested.

The project is located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. It is available for pickup up and completion of the project.

With the kids growing it is becoming difficult to work on it and has been standstill for past couple of years.. and would like to see it find a home for completion.

I bought the Miata for about 1800$ Drove around the block and stripped it :-(. I would have put around 2000$ on material (I am sure it was more but oh well)


I am willing to part with it for => 3800$cdn ( cash) + 150$ cdn- for engine hoist

Price is non-negotiable, All the knowledgeable folks in this forum know it probably takes 3 to 4 times the price to get to this level, especially if you include labour and countless hours of pondering and sourcing to get to this stage.

If interested email ( rkrish123@yahoo.com) , first person who hits the price or above gets it.

Thank for your interest.

You might want to say something about the chassis design. Is it a "Book" design, Gibbs design, McSorley (221, 442, or)? Also may want to add some photos of the rear showing how you tied in the Miata subframe.

Just some suggestions.

I believe the Chassis was a 44+2 build. I have to look up notes. Can't seem to find the notebook :BH:. Worst case I will measure and post it when I have some time. I do have the Haynes Workshop manual for the donor Miata ( should help in putting it back together).

Not trying to be a jerk, but you're just begging for the rear shock mounts to break.
