FS: 91 Civic HB Parts car (NO TITLE!) $350

This is for Christ (who has first dibs on this sale), but also for any other interested buyers. The car is in Binghamton NY. I bought this car for my EV conversion without the title - speaking to the previous owner I have no reason to believe the car was stolen. After learning what a nightmare it is to get another title in New York State, I've decided to explore the option of selling the car to someone who doesn't need a title. I will NOT acquire a title for the buyer. If I were so inclined to spend a little over $200 for a new title, I wouldn't be selling the car.

As for things that would concern those interested in this car functioning with the ICE, it purportedly needs a new distributor. It also needs CV axles and radius rods. All of these things are included with the car in addition to a number of other internal engine parts including a throttle body. All of these are shown in the picture(s). It currently has a weird exhaust setup - a muffler (definitely not a honda muffler) is mounted to the underside of the car about halfway down its length. It looks weird but probably works. The actual honda muffler is still mounted in the back, but isn't hooked up.



RL^

FL^


FR^

RR^


Under the driver^


Despite the evidently loose interior seals, this sunroof definitely does not leak. I'm pretty sure it's not stock since this is a DX.


Christ was telling me this could be an Si because of the sunroof, but digit 8 tells us otherwise.




PS - if anyone but Christ buys this, I intend to return the radius rods to him, since he gave them to me. I should've taken a photo, but as it is now, there is one missing from the front driver's side, and the other is only connected at one end. I'm assuming this is the case because it lacks CV axles, and the rods were probably removed to remove the original CV axles to put the new ones (included with the car) on.

Guys... the names... really? LOL.

I'm still considering whether I'm going to have the money... in the mean time, if someone else makes an offer that you'll take, go for it. You can include those radius rods, as well. I don't need 'em back, honest!

After seeing that sunroof thing... yea, that's obviously not an Si sunroof LOL... they didn't even have the decency to put in the OEM option .. I guess as long as it doesn't leak, though, that's great!

I won't know for sure if I'll have the money until:

My wife's Saturn is legally on the road, inspected.
My Tacoma's final decision has been made (keep/junk/sell/etc.)
I get some space for yet another project car... rofl. This is getting ridiculous... I just brought home a TRX200 ATV as well as my other 2 tractors... I think my dad is getting tired of seeing me bring home more toys to his house...

Hey, what's the code on the engine there?

Should be D15B1, possibly D15B2 depending on year and serial number.

Some DX's ended up with B1's with B2 cams. They're the same engine, B1's have a slightly smaller cam in them, which makes less power.

Oops, I lied above - B2's came in DX/LX models, Stds had B1's, HF's had SOHC 8 valve (B6 or B8, can't remember which.) and 90-91 EX had A6, along with Si models.

(EX was Sedan trim only, Si was CRX/Civic Hatch trim, DX was all three, HF - CRX, LX sedan only, Std Hatch only.)

I was just remembering a thing I did for someone because he didn't have enough money to buy the B2 engine, but the guy actually gave him the "Garbage" B1 engine. Swap the cam, and you've got a B2, since that's the only discernible difference in the two.
