Default 1996 'Monster' Miata FOR SALE

I purchased this car in May ’18 from Gateway Motors in Orlando, FL and drove it home to New Jersey.

This is a ‘Monster’ Miata built with the ‘Monster’ brand V8 adaptation kit and includes: -Ford 302 (5L) w/4 barrel & electronic ignition
-Ceramic coated heaters and free flow exhaust
-5 speed transmission
-Ford 7.8 rear with 3.71 gears
-Replacement racing seats-Roll bar
-New tires - 205/60 15 front/ 225/60 15 rear
-Cold air induction hood
-2 electric cooling fans
-exterior front ‘chin’ spoiler
-New convertible top (w/ clear plastic window!)
-Components to re-activate the AC are included
-Radio is in the glove box.. but not connected
-Upgrades to the brakes and suspension are unknown by me… but the Monster kit recommends aftermarket brakes and struts… and this car has no problems with cornering or stopping!!!Since buying the car and driving it 1000 miles home I’ve fixed a number of issues including:
-New high torque mini-starter to overcome the hot starting problem.
-New alternator for full charging capability
-New mechanical fuel pump
-New high output Optima battery
-New 3 point seat beats
-Replacement inner door panels
-Replacement tail lights
-New oil/ filter
-Aligned the headlights
-Added independent on/off switch for the cooling fans

The car now starts (cold or hot!), runs, rev’s, corners and cruises at 70 plus beautifully!!... no shimmies, no vibrations and sounds AMAZING!!

Why am I selling after 1 year? I’m 74yrs old, retired and searching for the cars of my youth. This one is #10 in a series over the last 11yrs. And while this car is amazing… it’s more car then I need (or want to manage at my age) and needs some TLC and added work at the new owners discretion including activating the stock instruments, AC and backup lights.

I’m not desperate to sell. Actually looks good in the garage and is a significant attention getter! But I do feel it’s time for a new home at a fair price.
