1995 Civic VX l Milano Red l 97k miles l 2nd owner

I am putting my 1995 Honda Civic VX hatchback up for sale. I purchased this car from the original owner who was an older gentleman. The car holds a clean, California title. The VX model is special due to a number of reasons including but, not limited to, it's amazing MPG numbers, special VTEC-E motor, lightweight Enkei wheels, aluminum A/C and alternator brackets. The previous owner kept up with the maintenance and I have a bunch of records placed in an organized binder to show that. I even have the original title for the car that shows 3 miles. This car is 100% original minus the stereo and speakers being replaced. It still has the sticker on the front windshield from the dealership back in 1995! During my ownership, I took the liberty of replacing a plethora of parts on the car just to freshen up the car and make sure everything was in top shape. A list of parts that I replaced is depicted below:

Clutch master/slave cylinder
Alternator belt
Fuel filter
Valve cover gasket
Camshaft seal
Crankshaft seal
Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Tires have less than 7,000 miles on them
Rear main seal
EGR valve
Water pump
Timing belt

Note: All these parts have less than 6,000 miles on them.

A few details about the car:

Exterior - original Milano Red tri-coat is still in great condition. The car could use a detail to bring back the full shine but, the paint looks very nice as is. The car does have small nicks and dents here and there being that it is a 1995 car. The tires are in great shape as well and have 80% tread left. The wheels are original to the car.

Engine - the engine and transmission have both only turned over 104,xxx miles. This is pretty low for a car from 1995 and especially a car built for commuting like the VX. The engine is in great shape and operates with no noises or hesitation. I drove the car from Los Angeles to Fresno and back with zero issues. I have never experienced any sort of problems with this engine.

Transmission - the transmission is in excellent condition and shifts very smoothly throughout all the gears. The car engages in all the gears and does not grind or pop out whatsoever. The long gearing makes for awesome mpg on the freeway.

Interior - the interior is 100% original minus the stereo and speakers as I previously mentioned. The carpet is in excellent condition although the floor mats could use some cleaning. The floor mats are also original to the car. The front driver's seat has some expected wear marks from getting in and out. The rest of the interior is in great shape. The only other issue is the cupholder being broken. (If you know 92-95 Civic hatchbacks you know these are always broken).

Miscellaneous -
The car is equipped with optional A/C. This definitely comes in handy during hot weather. The A/C blows ice cold and works great. Car is also equipped with alarm.

The only issue with this car is that the compressor bearing makes a whirring noise which I have discussed with my mechanic. The A/C functions perfectly and his advice was replace it when you can't stand the noise anymore. It has no effect on the A/C's functionability.

Make: Honda
Model: Civic VX
Year: 1995
