Dunno. But I'm thinking the $895 price reflects the "know-how" discount. Buy it, diagnose it, buy a few dollars in parts (or a few hundred, lol), fix it, and you get a clean-looking car with a TALL six speed manual. The rarity is worth the risk, possibly.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
