Just a few quick things that seem to help V8 Miatas sell here:

How much are you asking?

Who did the actual build? Was it you, Monster Miata, Panache, Bishop, me (pretty sure not) a reputable tuning shop, etc.

What type of suspension is it running? Does it have the "stock" Monster Miata front springs with stock struts, a coilover setup, etc.?

Is the title clean or did it start as a reconstructed car?

Thanks for posting it up here for our members to look over. Once you've added the above I'd be more than happy to remove this post if you'd like me to.

-Jason

Pictures from all four sides, engine compartment pictures, chassis front and rear pictures? Pictures of the exhaust used, headers back?

Details on the engine?
Detailed on the suspension?
Details on the rest of the mechanicals and what has or has not been updated?
Mileage on chassis?
Mileage on drivetrain?
Receipts from Martin for his conversion kit? (important as it shows what exactly was sourced from him and what was not)
Have the quarters and fenders been cut and or modified for the flairs (beside the obvious holes for the bolts)?

Pictures of those areas as well?
Are the hood and trunk wrapped or painted?

Any rust, previous rust, and/or accident damage?

VIN for the chassis?
Age of the conversion?

Going to take a lot more than two pictures as a basic response or description to sell your car here (or elsewhere), as we know the difference in the build(s).....Same goes for the above just to justify your higher than current market asking price.

All this from the guy who has bought/built/restored/personally owned 9 V8 converted Miatas to date

Hi, I will try to answer some of your questions, but I can't answer all.

I did not build this car, I got it from the builder who had assistance from Monster as I understand. I do not have all documents, but I do have the build manual from Monster. I have owned this car since 2009 and not being a hands on car guy I have spent most of the money at the shops sorting out the things that come with a build as this trying to make a reliable driver. I planned to have a track/street car, but gave up the track idea for a good driver.
*The front springs and coil-overs were replaced as part of kit.
*The car has 176k miles and the running gear has about 80k undocumented miles.
*No rust Calif. car, no accidents to my knowledge and nothing to indicate any.
*I have put about 10k on the car since I got it.
*Paperwork indicates a 2008 build.
*As I understand the value in this car 1} Calif. B.A.R certification and well documented with the state and it can be very difficult to get titled. Many of these builds have been sold out of state, because they gave up trying. If your not in Calif. that's not so important 2} well sorted over the last 7 years.
*A buddy is helping set up this post and we are finding it difficult to download pictures, but continue to try ?
*I find it hard to find an average price and thought it was priced well with all the extras and understanding it is an OBO.
*If you send phone number I will call and try to answer more of your questions.
*Stock 1993 Mustang GT engine, rebuilt C4 and all serviced with any problems addressed.
*Clean title, no rebuild. vin #JM1NA3512P1419428
*What do you consider a average price ?

I think your price is right in the ballpark. If it would be easier for you feel free to email me some pictures at [email protected] and I'll put them up for you.

Good luck with your sale,
-Jason

Is the car still for sale? If so, are you still asking $14,500, and is it located in Redondo CA?

Considering the seller has not been on the forum since 02-04-2017 08:52 PM Not likely

I believe I may have been the builder of this car. I see some things that look familiar such as the rear end, exhaust, and hood but some things have changed as well. I will have to find the VIN and see if it is my old car. I loved this car.
