MX5 Taken on track day at Blyton Park for mechanical testing. Performed well all day.
Anglia aquired Dec 2018. Body in average condition. Floor & chassis beyond repair. Mechanically sound. Started & drove well.
MX5 floor pan had braces welded in place prior to cutting away all outer body panels. Thus preventing it folding in on itself.
