Lava Orange 2005 Mazdaspeed MX-5 Miata GT

Mazdaspeed Miata (MSM) with VIN JM1NB354850411313. This car was built on Wednesday, August 18, 2004, the 117th 2005 Mazdaspeed Miata. It is a GT model. That means it has leather seats with silver stitching, and a cloth (not vinyl) convertible top. It is completely original and has no modifications.

Mechanical condition: Excellent. This car has been well maintained. I have service records from Mazda. Everything on this car works including ice-cold A/C, Bose CD changer.

Cosmetic condition: Excellent. There are no door dings or scratches in the paint. The interior looks brand new. So does the engine compartment and inside the trunk. There are no chips or scratches in the windshield.

No damage or paint work. Clean Carfax. Clear title.

Issues: The wheels have scrapes from scraping curbs but no major damage. The paint has water spots in some areas that are visible in the right lighting conditions. My friends say these can be removed with a buffer.

Recent maintenance: The following maintenance has been performed in 2013 and less than 500 miles ago: New tires (Toyo Extensa HP 205/40-17), oil and filter change, wiper blades, A/C and alternator belts replaced, air filter replaced, new, correct battery (Marathon AGM), "bog solenoid" cleaned and lubricated, rear brakes adjusted, transmission gear oil replaced (Motorcraft full synthetic), differential gear oil replaced (Redline 75W-90), roll-up window channels cleaned and lubricated (Shin-Etsu grease), brake fluid flushed and replaced, clutch fluid flushed and replaced, coolant flushed and replaced, upper and lower shift boots replaced.

Included with car: Sale includes a color-matching hardtop which has a rear defroster and a headliner. It also includes one original soft top ("tonneau") cover, which is like new and is shown in photos. Also includes one extra cover which is installed under the hard top to protect the cloth top. Car comes with two original "switchblade" type keys. Original factory wheel locks are included too.

How rare is this car? The MSM was only built in two model years, 2004 and 2005. A total of only 5428 were built. Only 1428 2005 models were built. Lava Orange was only available in 2005. Only 394 Lava Orange cars were built, making it the rarest color of MSM.
