1985 HONDA CIVIC CRX for $2500

Hello -

NOTE: I have NO affilation with this used car dealer. It's just in my neighborhood, so I like to see what it's selling every now and then.

I like to troll in autotrader.com, and sometimes I find cars I think Ecomodders might like. Here's one that brings back memories :

1985 HONDA CIVIC CRX Used Car's Detail [Gulliver USA]

Quote:
MPG City : 40
MPG Highway : 48
Combined MPG : 43
Mileage 131,765 mi.
Transmission 5 Speed Manual
Engine 1.5
Optional Equipment
Alloy Wheels No
Cruise Control No
Power Steering No
Power Seat No
Power Mirrors No
ABS No
I used to want this car sooooo bad!!!! Look at all that wonderful utilitarian NO!

From what I can tell, the MPG is new EPA. The old EPA numbers were 49 city/54 highway/51 combined MPG.

Oh wow. Light weight goodness.

I looked over a rusty one of these ~5 years ago. But I haven't seen one that vintage here in the rust belt since then.

that is not an HF is it? really? it has a passenger mirror (not common on the HF) and honda hub caps (not correct either! the HF had narrow light weight steel wheels without hub caps) a few other things about that car make it not look like an HF... but it does have the HF air intake... all aluminum instead of black painted steel

I am "trusting" the MPG claims on the website. Maybe I will go and take a look at it in order to tell for sure. Can anyone tell by looking at the engine? :



What about the rear? :



Where did the HF symbol go on 1st gens?

Ok, there are some marks there, so maybe it fell off/was stolen.
