1979 Honda Civic 1200

57,511 actual miles. This is a true barn find from dry southern New Mexico. As rust free as a first generation Honda Civic could be. Very limited surface rust only. This is an excellent restoration candidate. I purchased the car from the heir of the original owner. The car was last registered in in 1996. The original owner was a professor who lived close to campus. He passed away in 1993 and the car was just parked after that.I bought the car thinking I could just put in a new battery and some fresh gas but it needs more than my skills and time permit. The car runs by putting gas in the carburetor but will not run off the tank. I cleaned out the tank and replaced the fuel lines but no help. I suspect the fuel pump or clogged carb. Car comes with a carb rebuild kit. Also, the brake pedal just goes to the floor, I filled the reservoir up, maybe just needs bleed. All the electrical seems to work; lights, blinkers, radio, fan, horn all check out. The interior is good, see pictures for drivers seat split, surprisingly no cracks in the dash. Body is good, never wrecked, clearly needs paint and some dings filled in. Glass and chrome are all very good with no chips or pitting. Has one damaged tail light and is missing the original "n" on the rear hatch. Tires are like new. Comes with original paperwork, owners manual, dealer brochure, tools and what is believed to be the original spare tire.Please email with any questions.

Additional info:-The carpet is perfectly usable as is, but has lost it's "nap", would need to be replaced for full restoration.-I got a new (used) tail light to replace the broken lens so that is no longer an issue.-The interior was just vacuumed out, the seats and trim still need a good cleaning.-I did change the oil and put Marvelous Mystery Oil in the spark plug holes and let it soak for a few days before cranking it over to prevent any sticking damage.-Replaced wiper blades to avoid scratching the windshield.I can deliver the car for $1.00/mile up to 300 miles.
