1997 Mazda MX5 Harvard Ltd Edition - 16000 Miles - 1 Owner



We are delighted to offer this incredibly special car onto the market. This Mazda MX5 really does tick all of the boxes when it comes to spec, mileage, ownership, condition and provenance. Our car has covered just 16,000 miles from new and is a one lady owner car with all its original manuals, original bill of sale, service book, hard top, supplying dealership number plates and spare keys that still even retain the supplying dealership keyring. Further to this, it is a special edition Harvard, named after the famous US University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Only 500 of this collectible special edition were built, all produced between May and September 1997 and based on the larger engine 1.8 model, finished in Silver Stone Metallic with Burgundy leather. The Harvard model features 15 inch alloy wheels, chrome brace bar, leather interior, wood trim, Momo leather steering wheel, scuff plates and Harvard badging and floor mats.

This stunning example was sold new by Arundale Mazda in Middlesbrough, first registered in May 1997 and sold to a lady on Teesside. The original sales invoice from 1997 is with the car, confirming the purchase date as the 17th May 1997 and its clear from the history file this was the owners second car as an invoice for a new Mazda Tribute dated 2004 is also in the history file. The Mazda was first serviced at 7552 miles on the same day of its first MOT in 2000, and MOT records are with the car covering the last 23 years recording and warranting the mileage. The next service was stamped in the book at 11251 miles in 2003 and each year the car has been with local garages for its annual MOT and check over and service as required.

We can confirm the Mazda is superbly presented with an exceptional bodyshell and structurally first class underside. Due to the age of the paint and some minor blemishes associated with an original car, the Mazda has recently been subject of a complete outer re-spray at the cost of almost £6000. The result is a first class paint finish on an excellent bodyshell. The upholstery as expected from the ultra-low mileage is beautiful and original, as is the hood and the hard top excellent. The Mazda has arrived with current MOT, but will be supplied to its next owner with a fresh 12 months MOT, full service, function check and new set of tyres. This low mileage car has excellent running gear as expected from the mileage, and is a fabulous collectors piece with unrepeatable provenance.
