1985 Honda Civic DX – SOLD for $500!

June 14 , 2021Update – We’re pleased to report the original owner of this ’85 Honda Civic found a buyer with a similar car who knows how to fix the problem. The original owner accepted $500 for his car and we’re glad to hear a new caretaker will breathe some new life into this Civic rather than waste away in a Junkyard. Good luck with the purchase!

As our auction site continues to grow, we receive requests to auction classic cars that are on the edge of really being ready for the final resting spot in a wrecking yard.

One such car on the edge is this 70K original mile, 1985 Honda Civic DX 5-Speed Hatchback currently for sale by the original owner located in Edison, New Jersey. Unfortunately, the car car has been sitting for the past two years after a the Vacuum Line amplifier for the extremely complex Honda CVCC carburetor system developed an intermittent stalling problem.  To make matters even worse, Honda no longer sells the part required to fix the car and used parts are likely just as bad as the one trying to be replaced.

The original owner’s collector car insurance is up for renewal at the end of June. The owner is torn as he doesn’t want to send it to the junkyard and he doesn’t want to renew the insurance for a car he can’t drive reliably.  Consequently, the owner has asked us to help find someone willing and brave enough to either: 1. Get this Civic running reliably again or 2. Use the solid body and chassis as the base for a custom build.

If you are up to the challenge and have access to a flatbed or other towing device to pic up the car, the owner wants $1,000 or best offer.  Please feel free to call us at (877) 468-6497 and we will get you connected with the original owner.

Good luck with the purchase!
