1991 Acura Legend Legend L
For sale: is a partially restored, ow mileage, ccident-free, ust-free, ostly original, 991, CURA LEGEND, model, door sedan that I recently purchased from an individual in California on May 13th, 015. I was told the car along with other vehicles were part of a real estate deal that he purchased ad hoc and that it had been sitting in a barn for several years due to ill health of the original owner who succumbed to his terminal illness. I was also advised that vermin had nested in the car; the engine ran temporarily on starter fluid and that the fuel pump was not working. As I am a car buff and have good hands-on knowledge of Acuras and Hondas (and own a 1st generation 1990 Acura Legend LS (228,000 miles), 1994 Acura NSX (40,200 miles), 1970 Honda AN600, 1972 Honda AZ600, 1985 Honda SXi Lawn mower etc), took on the challenge of purchasing and trucking this Acura over to Texas with the intention of restoring it adequately to be functional again. The vehicle was finally delivered by truck on 21 June, 015. The truck driver advised the brakes were not working. However, e managed to roll it off his truck with the hand brake to control it & pushed it into my workshop. List of work performed: The fuel pump which is housed inside the fuel tank has been replaced. The fuel filter sock inside the fuel tank has been replaced. The fuel filter in engine compartment has been replaced. The battery is good and brought up to full charge by a battery charger. The fuel pressure at the fuel filter in engine was checked and found to be 45 psig and held constant.First turn of the key and the motor started and ran like a well oiled sewing machine. All fluids were checked and found to be at the right level. However, he engine oil & filter has been changed. The Brake Master cylinder has been replaced and all 4 wheel brakes bled. The brakes work very well. A pressure test was done of 4 cylinders at random and averaged 200 psi. The High beam halogen bulb on driver's side has been replaced. The rear view mirror has been re-glued to inside of windshield. I had an experienced roving mechanic do the necessary mechanical work with my overview.

This Acura Legend has low miles for its age (24 years) and is fully functional. The intrinsic build quality of Hondas and Acuras needs no talking about. Its hard to touch the quality of these early model Acuras. The excellent engineering & build quality makes these cars run and last forever & the low resale prices for a "used" Acura does not accurately represent the high quality of everything inside the car. In other words the down stream consumer/buyer often gets a super deal paying pennies for what these cars are truly worth. Provided of course that it has been properly maintained; and low miles is generally the only yardstick for a downstream buyer to go by. And this Acura has the low miles and the interior is in very good condition and so is the exterior body clean and straight. If these cars donned the Mercedes Benz star logo or the BMW logo they would be selling for so much more; yet you can not compare the troublesome, igh maintenance costs of those brands to an Acura or Honda. Fyi: Acura was a name given to the upscale division of Honda when these cars were introduced to the US market in mid 1986 with the Acura Legend and Integra models. In late 1990 Honda unveiled the NSX to compete and grab the high-end, xotic segment market from Ferrari. In 1990, he Acura NSX (or Honda NSX in Europe & Australia) outperformed the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta as well as the Lotus and Porsche equivalents & was well publicized. Essentially Acuras are high end Hondas and made by the Honda Motor company in Japan to exactingly high standards. These cars were called Honda Legend and Honda Integra outside the USA, ack then. This car would make an excellent daily driver and family sedan for hundreds of thousands of miles more and many, any years of reliable, afe, omfortable driving pleasure.
