Craigslist GEM in the Kansas City area


4wd with 6-speed manual in a civic wagon

1991 RT4WD Civic Wagon.
D16Z6 single cam VTEC.
Real-Time 4WD 6-speed M/T
170K Miles.
Form Function adjustable coilovers.
15" BBS with 195/50's. Good tires all around.

Interior condition is very good, although there are some stains. Compared to most EF Civics, this thing is in immaculate shape. No tears in ANY of the interior. Black dash gives it a nice 2-tone appearance.

I have spent much time at junkyards picking OEM parts for this ugly beauty, including many things like: all inner wheel well plastics, all 4 (4WD) mudflaps, A/C lines, rubber door trims, inner hood insulation, and original airbox and all related ducting. These are all things that generally are missing from any of these Civics made these years.

new(er) timing belt, tensioner, water pump, valve job, and of course all necessary gaskets. (timing belt broke 10k miles ago and took the valves with it, hence the valve job)

Does not need any work done to it, she was just winterized and ready to get us through this winter.


Staying Focus'd on MPG

Haha, yeah I was thinking of seeing a GEM ev too.

Very nice clean Civic. Price is a bit steep for me, but to the right person I'm sure it isn't.

Current project: A better alternator delete
