1982 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe Ma
Incredible 1 owner Honda best described by the original owner:
“´ My wife and I are the original owners of the car purchased locally at Walnut Creek Honda in April 1982 and serviced regularly including all scheduled interval maintenance and recommended replacement parts and repairs at their maintenance facility in Walnut Creek during all 34 years of our ownership.
´ The car was used exclusively for longer touring trips on holidays and vacations. We enjoyed uncrowded driving along the Pacific Coast to Mendocino, Ft. Bragg, the Oregon Coast, Monterey/Carmel, San Luis Obispo, the Delta Island Route through the East Bay to Sacramento and rural Yolo County, the Gold Country tours on Hwy 49 to Nevada City, etc. All sustained and continuous driving. It was never used for the drive train destructive stop & go driving tests of our crowded Bay Area commuting. In turn it delivered many pleasurable miles without the need of expensive repairs.
´ It was always garaged, cleaned and polished regularly, leading to the long and handsome life of the original paint and the vacuum cleaned interior.
´ The critical replacement of the Cam Drive belt (and all other belts) took place at regular time intervals instead of the suggested mileage interval (90,000). Replacements were made at: 11/88, ~ 35000; 11/08/93, 57688; 5/27/99, 68,317; and 1/06/06, 80,157. After this time the car was used sparingly and locally due to the owners’ advancing age and some crippling injuries.”
This Prelude runs and drives great. All options work as they should including very cold air conditioning. Starts right up and has no odd noises or smoke. Paint has a few door dings and brush touched areas but has held up very well due to being garage kept since new. Interior has also held up well with some slight wear to the drivers seat beading. Shifts good and clutch feels fine with no slipping. No rust ever. All plating on engine metal parts looks like new.
Rare opportunity to own a piece of Honda history. Now 34 years old these vintage Hondas are coming into their own and draw quite a crowd at the car shows. Don’t miss out!
