1978 Honda Accord

I don't have enough time this year to drive or work on this fellah. For that I'm very sad. However that means someone else can enjoy her now.
Runs but needs an engine work (valve cover gasket, low compression on 3rd piston for unknown reason so has trouble getting highway speeds / blows some smoke from exhaust) and a little trans love (slowly leaking gasket, grinds periodically in 2nd). I drive locally every day/grocery getter, good tight response, but it does need work to function at 100%. This is a project.
The interior & exterior are truly immaculate, nothing is broken or missing, great electrical, upholstery/carpet, no interior leaks, no rust. Repainted to original factory color in 2010. Includes very rare rear window sunshade. Purchased in the SF Bay Area, garage kept most of it's life in New Mexico, now back in the SF Bay Area. Gets a lot of attention and stares.
Odometer is correct and oh so incredibly low for a CVCC. 1st generation Accord, 2nd year of production ever. Clean title. Smogged through June. I have the title in your name in hand. Pre-1980 vins are only 10 digits. I can send additional photos or a video if you like.
