Description for Mazda MX-6 1988

Up for sale is a very rare unabused / unmodified MX6 GT survivor. Car features the original 2.2 liter turbocharged engine. I purchased the car from the original owners estate a few years ago. Since then I have mechanically restores almost all of the car. Car is my current daily driver and is very reliable and easily gets 25+ mpg around town.
Once plentiful and easy to score, nice original examples of the collectible first generation MX6 are becoming increasingly scarce. Add to the fact this car is not been highly modified as do many were, and you’re sure to see it appreciate in value over the years to come. This is an investment that can be driven daily or on those special occasions but either way sure to get admiring thumbs up wherever you take it.

The original owner had the engine rebuilt approximately 100,000 miles ago. Head was redone again when I replaced the timing belt and water pump last winter. Additional work I have done includes new front and rear struts with mounts, front and rear brakes, rotors, calipers and brake lines. New rear hub bearings on each side, new outer tie rod ends, new ball joints, new control arm bushings, radiator flushed, new water pump, new radiator hoses, new heater hoses, new ignition coil and igniter, injectors cleaned with new rubber grommets, new plugs cap and rotor, new distributor O ring seal, new valve cover gasket, new head gasket, new rubber boot off of turbo, new headlights, new brake master cylinder, new clutch master cylinde, new shifter bushing,. The exhaust system is good and was replaced by previous owner. New tires last year.
The car does have some minor things still needing attention, they don’t affect it’s reliability. Those are: needs headliner replaced. Original one is ripped in a few places, original stereo channel display does not illuminate so you cannot see what station your tuned to, drivers windows is slow in spots when raising, air conditioning does not blow cold. I purchased new hoses but was waiting to replace the condenser at the same time.
The car has been repainted it’s original color by original owner in the past. Paint job is ok, but it is starting to peel on front bumper and in a couple other small spots. Still looks great overall. I believe the hood, front bumper and passenger fender were replaced at one time also as it appears they came from a red car. There is no damage that I have seen to either the radiator support or passenger side sub frame or chassis. However I believe I should disclose this since I am aware of it.
Previous owner kept extensive notes on all maintenance he did to include the engine rebuild in s small notebook that came with the car. It shows he loved the car like I do and took great care if it. I hope to pass this car on to someone who also appreciates Mazda’s little pocket rocket in its original unabused and unmolested collector form. I believe this car could easily be picked up and driven anywhere
