Unmolested 1986 honda CRX

I'm gonna go look at this tomorrow if the guy still has it, is this worth what he is asking...?
P.S I'm going to walk up with 1,500 cash and see if he will take it, worth even at 1500?

1986 HONDA CIVIC/CRX HF 5 SPEED VERY NICE STOCK CONDITION

Not if I get there first! Nice find. It may be. Out in Cali rust is less of a issue than here, but if I saw a clean crx around here I'd be all about it. Drive it before you think money and realize most guys can be reasoned with one price

Wow,what a time capsule!

Freaking awesome little car,I love the 1G CRX's..
That'd be worth every penny of $1850,and he's including all those OEM parts to boot..

Just make sure the engine runs great as I don't know how parts availability is for those motors anymore.


I'm jelly.

What exactly made an "HF" different from the other trims in its generation? Manifold? How would he identify that the important parts are still on the car?

Dash and plastics look sunburned. But it is really nice. With all that work on the timing and transmission, And the somewhat faded condition, I wonder what it has been doing with such low miles after 28 years. I wonder about suspension parts, hoses and stuff that might dry out in a desert setting.

Go have a look. If it drives well it's a steal.

This gen1 CRX is the car that put the Civic high on the list of cars I wanted. I was not old enough to drive, and I already monitored hih fuel economy cars.

Well I called him and he said it runs great, but the bearing or something is making a weird noise when it's in gear, he said when you push the clutch, it goes away. If he wasn't so damn far away, I would go look at it today, but it's a 40 mile each way round trip, and I don't even have the money with my anyway, it's at home. If anyone else lives around and wants to go grab it, please do. I would hate to see some hot rod kid pick this up and ricer it out.

IIRC, that's an indicator of a problem with the input shaft bearing or the throwout bearing. The latter is easier to remedy than the former. Both require removing the transmission. The part itself is only like $100 but the labor is much costlier (unless you invest your own time, then you get slave wages).

How much do you think labor is going to cost?

[Edit]: The main reason I wanna get this car is, it already gets 60mpg freeway, and I'm going to kammback, grill block, and underbelly pan it, I'm betting I would get at least 70 with that...

Depends on who you hire, I suppose. Got a friend willing to help out for the priceof dinner and some beer? If it's a shop I would think removing the transmission to replace some bearings and do the clutch and such (since you'll have the parts on hand and they're going in anyway) would be several hundred mijimum to a couple thousand likely.
