Ever since Mazda announced it would begin making reproduction parts for the first-generation Eunos Roadster, owners, enthusiasts and restorers of the beloved Miata have been excited about the list of parts that they might have access to. Well, Mazda Japan has published a full list of parts available from the program, and it’s pretty impressive.
The Roadster Restore program kicked off in 2017 and we’ve known about the most heavily publicized items since, such the original steering wheel and shift knob, fabric soft-top and even replica Bridgestone SF 325 tires. However, the recently published full list is 12 pages long and includes hundreds of parts.
It includes many things you might expect — gaskets, hoses, washers, brackets, housings, and those pesky plastic push-button fasteners that always seem to break. However, the list also includes impossible-to-substitute items like seat belts, reflector lenses, tonneau cover and a full dash pad (though currently right-hand-drive only). Some parts, like the OEM “Roadster” badge, exist in the aftermarket, but now you can have a real plastic one made by Mazda itself. You can even get new carpets and floor mats for that new car feel beneath your feet and smell in your nose.
Last month, Mazda announced that the reproduction parts would be made available in the US. We don’t know exactly which parts that might be yet, but we can only hope that items like the dash, badges and mats will be localized for the US market and left-hand-drive cars.
