1983 Honda Civic

To Settle Estate:
1983 Honda Civic 4 Door, AC, 5 spd manual.
The Honda has been in a detached garage since sometime in 1996because of my brother's health problems. The stick shift he enjoyed driving had become a barrier when he contracted MRSA in his left heel. He would not sell the car, it was his hands down favorite. He used it mainly for weekend getaways with his wife. They loved to travel visiting state parks, historic destinations, etc.
The car was purchased by him in 1983 from Country Motors Honda which is now Honda North. My brother had all scheduled maintenance done at Alvin's Honda as there was a nearby restaurant and motel they favored. It has never been in an accident.
Even as his health declined he would not sell the car. When they amputated his left leg, he wouldn't sell the car. When I opened the garage there was 20 years of dust on it.
I was surprised the Michelin tires were not completely flat. They've held steady pressure for more than a month.
The car is being offered for parts as it has not been started since it was garaged. The brakes have all ceased so it will need rear brake drums, rear brake shoes, front rotors, front brake pads new battery and cables, driver and front passenger seats need upholstery, and the parking brake cable broke sometime in those 20 years.

A potential buyer tried to free the wheels and succeeded with the front wheels. Twice it fell off the jack. I would not feel safe selling this unless you can flatbed it. I believe use of a dolly to tow it would be dangerous.

Local pickup preferred. The garage is on a dead endalley with a rather steep but short rise to the garage. It will have to be winched out of the garage. Again, all the brakes were ceased from disuse and it can't safely be towed.

More photos are available on photobucket.

Please do not make an offer or purchase the Civic if you have no intention of following through. Twice now people have either not paid or backed out of the deal.

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required with full payment and pick up of the Civic within 7 days. If you do not complete the transaction the $100 WILL NOT be refunded.

Thanks for looking and God bless.
