1990 Honda Civic RT 4WD Wagon 4-Door

The car up for auction is my wonderful beloved 1990 Honda Civic RT4WD in 5 speed manual. I have gotten many compliments and thumps up when I am driving in it, this car draw attention more than any exotic car. I am sadly to let it go, but there is a third kids on the way. I was planning to use this car as a family weekender but now i will need something bigger. I would like another Honda enthusiast would continue on the same care I took for this car. About the history of the car, I purchased this Honda from a guy who imported it from the USA. The car has been an Arizona car for his first 17 years, washington for 1 year, vermont for 5 years than Quebec canada for the last 2. The car was not winter driven in Canada. I have outlined the work I have done so far below.

Service History


The outside of the car is in great condition. When I first purchase the car the original red paint was faded due to its 25 year of its life. So, I decided to paint the car same color it came from factory. During the process of the paint I have extensively stripped all the trim and molding to make sure the paint job was done correctly during the process. As you can see the in the picture the paint is very shiny and brand new besides the dust collected on the car from sitting in the garage. But it may need a buff to make it look better since theres some imperfection in the paint. The tires and wheel are brand new (less than 300 miles). I still have the original RT4WD white wheel and they are pretty clean. All the weather seals are in great condition no water leaks. All the molding around the body are super clean. The list below is what I have done to replace or upgrade for the car since I have owned it for the exterior.

  • Paint Job
  • Thule Roof Rack
  • New wheel and tire
  • 3000K hid fog light

The inside of the car is in great condition. Power window and power lock from a Sedan EF was added. There is now hole where the manuel windows was before. The interior panel can't be swap with the sedan because its wagon specific. I put a brand new kenwood Unit with bluetooth and usb. There is absolutely no rip on the seats as you can see in the pictures. Cargo carpet is super clean with no rip. A/C work and is super cold.


The car engine is a DOHC ZC OBD1 and was swapped this last winter. This engine was super clean, I know that every import shop wil tell you that they JDM engine has less than 40 000mile, but this one really look like it has not been driven for a long time in Japan, it is so clean. No oil leaks anywhere. It was crazy clean under the valve cover. The car idles great and never gave me any problems. The engine does not smoke or leak oil and starts up every time. The engine is very healthy. The item listed below is what I have replaced and upgraded during the swap:

  • Every fluid changed and new filter
  • Brand new radiator and hose
  • New distributor (to match obd1)
  • Xenocron ECU ( with stock OBD1 zc mapping)
  • Polyurethane Motor mount
  • all new Strap (A/C, power steering and Alternator)

Transmission :

The car transmission is in great running condition. The car shifts perfectly and smoothly (no grind at all).

  • New Gm Syncromesh fluid
Suspension, Brakes Steering :

The car suspension is brand new. The front are progress coilover and the rear are Koni yellow. I do have the rear progress coilover but it was too harsh for my taste (remember, I had 2 kids in the back). The koni yellow are adjusted to the smootest setting and they are great! The front brake on the car has a lot of life left about 90% front and rear and new (new rotor and pad). Overall the car rides very smooth and responsive and is in great running condition. The item listed below is what I have replaced and upgraded during my ownership of the car.

  • Brake Fluid
  • Front Disc and pad, rear rotor and pad
  • New shock and spring on 4 corner
  • polyurethane bushing kit
  • New Ball joint
  • New Tie rod
  • Skunk 2 brand new upper control arm
  • Rear adjustable toe arm
  • 3 wheel bearing out of 4 are new


Overall the car is great condition. Muffler is new and there is no exaust leak at all.

NOTE: This car starts every time and runs great and is very reliable with no problems that being said it is still an old vehicle and there will always be something that could be fixed or replaced. However, the car needs nothing and runs great in its current state. The car is used and is sold AS-IS with no warranty.

Additional Notes:

There is some small dents all around the car. the only rust is the one in the pictures. Please, take a look of my youtube video of the car :



There's a little noise between 30 to 45 miles per hour (not so much noticeable) when the 4wd is engage. I check the bearing in the front diff while the engine was out and they were looking good. The gear was also looking as per a machinist), so i now think this noise may be coming from the front u joint (where the driveshaft connect to the front diff). There's some scratch on the windshield but there is no crack. Rear passenger auto-lock doesnt work. I did not take the time to diagnosis. you lock manualy with no trouble. Every window roll down and up. Black rubber parts of the front and rear bumper has multiple scratch.

The car is used and is sold AS-IS with no warranty. The winning buyer will be responsible for any shipment of the car cost if decided to ship the car. But i will do everything i can to help the buyer in the process. I can also pick up at the airport.
