5 1983 thru 1991 CRX HFs for sale.

I just saw this thread . So I will explain a little then move forward. I have been a mechanic for over 40 yrs. Due to health issues and a neighbor who is a thief. I am going to quit working vehicles. I have always loved the CRX HFs . I used them as work cars to save fuel. All ran when I parked them. But you will need new batteries and fresh gas to get them running again. I have titles on some and some I do not. Most of them have less than 150k on them and I have at least one with 90k. I will take 1500 each for them. I will also work on getting pics and info on each of these. If there is a interest. Even if you come to get one and get it running I do NOT recommend driving it home until you get new tires on them. Feel free to call 9AM to 9PM EST 812 493 6256 this is a landline. Thanks

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.

Thanks for replying. I have not done anything on these because we have had snow. I will be getting things posted soon . We have had 12 inches of snow here. I assure I will get it completed soon as I am selling off all of my CRXs because I am retiring and no longer travel like I did. PLUS I will have a number of parts.

This sounds like a good opportunity for someone who likes these cars (I love 'em) and is looking a project!


Keep us posted.

Oooh, I love the CRX, it's like the grandfather of my car.

A couple guys at uni have CRXes, although one needs a TON of repairs and only gets 17-18 mpg even though it is the HF model. One guy has one in his yard on the way to church.

If I had the time/money I'd definitely be interested, but my fiance already told me I'm limited to getting only one more Insight after we get married.

I love them to, when I was working I would drive them 114 miles round trip per day. They are awesome little cars . I never understood why they quit making them. 53mpg on the HFs and I managed to get my SI to 47 and sometimes 52mpg.

As good as the HFs if I were your friend I would have been finding out why it is so far down . The high gas mileage is one of the reasons I love these cars. I never got more than 48 with a Prius. Now city driving with a Prius I did extremely well. However I rarely drive in the city. Plus they were my little go carts when I had to be in traffic . I could do things the big gas hogs could not do. I was going to restore them but I am going to head a different direction and do something bigger to help with reducing fuel consumption.

If you figure it out I would be willing to bring it to the border for a fee but I am not interested in getting a passport and crossing out of the USA.

Yeah his CRX needs a ton of work, he just needs to find time to fix it. At this point it probably needs an engine rebuild from what he's told me of it. Hopefully he fixes it rather than getting rid of it, it's rare to see any kind of running CRX on the road these days.
