1985 Honda CRX SI
Honda CRX Si 1985 Sunroof CD Spoiler Alloy Wheels 85 Black 5 Speed Manual Tinted Civic Fuel Injected VIN JHMAF5339FS035637 Selling my personal time capsule. I have owned this vehicle since 1995 and it’s in excellent condition for a 30 year old vehicle. I drove this car from 1995 to 1996 and then from 1998 to 2002. It was stored indoors the other years in a storage environment. It has been in storage since 2002. As such there are some areas that will need to be addressed. It has 146,000 original miles and would be a great restoration project. In an effort to provide full disclosure, want to convey all the good and bad details I can think of when listing this car. If there are other areas of concern, lease message me before purchase. This car needs to be paid for in full before pickup. It will likely need to be transported unless you are buying locally in Utah. $500 deposit via Paypal due within 48 hours of purchase. Remainder due within 7 days of purchase. We accept a cashier’s check, ire transfer, r bank deposit in our account. I have the clean title in hand, eady for transfer. The Good: Car has never been wrecked. I am a mechanic and took very good care of it when in use. The drive train is perfect on this car. Engine and transmission are in superb condition. Shifts smoothly, changed the clutch out personally on this vehicle at one point. I also changed the timing belt, rakes as needed, ires, ilters, une-ups, osch Platinum spark plugs, il, tc. A/C Compressor was changed at one point, lthough it does not appear to be blowing cold air currently after being in storage, ay need a recharge or additional support. Fuel Pump just changed. Oil and filter just changed with synthetic oil. Alloy American Racing Rims that are good condition. Tires are in good shape and appear to have 30,000 miles or so of life left on them. No major body issues or dents. Sound system was updated at one point with a CD player and upgraded speakers in doors and rear. High amperage cabling was installed under carpet and paneling for subwoofer in the rear. Amp and subwoofer are not currently present but wiring is intact if this is desired. Tweeters are installed on the side panels. Glass in the car is perfect as far as I know, don’t see any cracks or even rock chips when examining the glass. If there are small imperfections they are likely very minor. Windows are tinted and appear to be in decent condition on the side windows, he back glass needs the window tint replaced. Car has a sunroof and was used frequently when I drove it. It currently pops up but will need to be opened and cleaned/lubricated for proper function. I installed a Car alarm and an auxiliary air horn, ot currently connected to the battery but should be functional if re-connected. Interior is in fantastic shape. Seats are in amazing condition for their age. No major tears or stains with the exception of a tear along the side of the drivers side seat near should height which was repaired with silicone. It has been a functional repair that has not spread for the last 20 years. Dash and panels are in AMAZING condition, ot cracked out or broken. I have had cars that were 5 years old that have cracked out and break. The interior of this car is in fantastic shape!!! Engine block heater installed that can be plugged in during winter months. Headlights upgraded to brighter Halogen lighting. Battery appears to be in good condition and starts the car right up. As far as I know, ll instruments and components are in working condition without problem unless otherwise mentioned here. That being said, ealize this is a 30 year old car and there are going to be some minor things that may need adjusted and repaired. SMOKE FREE, ever been smoked in. The Bad: The fuel pump has just been changed. After changing the fuel pump, t is obvious that there is rust in the fuel tank. The tank was rinsed and etched with vinegar when the pump was replaced but the remaining debris in the tank is inhibiting the car from running well. The pollutants appear to be clogging the in-tank strainer/filter and preventing adequate fuel from reaching the injection system. It will idle and run at lower speeds but acceleration is problematic and would not recommend running it in this condition until the fuel situation is remedied. New replacement gas tanks can be purchased for under $100 including on Ebay. The paint on this car has seen better days. It is no longer the original glossy black as the sun has caused the clear coat to peel on the roof and hood. In addition there are paint chips in a variety of locations, specially on the hood. The exterior moldings along the windows are cracking and will need repainted for the painted one and replaced for the rubber ones. The exterior of the car will need repainted. There is some corrosion under the car including under the rear wheel wells. Some Bondo work will be required although it doesn’t appear to be extensive. The exhaust needs replaced. The car is quite loud currently as the muffler is rusted out. Muffler and exhaust pipe under the car will need replaced. Again, hese parts should be available quite economically. Overall, he car is in great shape for its age and is probably an 85-90% car that will need a little bit of work to get closer to 100% and will make a great project for the lucky buyer.
