1978 Honda Civic CVCC

Up for sale is my beloved 1978 Honda Civic CVCC Hondamatic. I have owned this car for about 7 years and have devoted my life restoring it under my ownership. This involves lots of little detail refinishing or replacing worn parts with new old stock (NOS) . Most if not all parts for this car have been discontinued and made it very difficult for me to obtain.
The car's odometer reads at 72,348 and is original and has not rolled over. I recently installed a new engine from Japan about less than 500 miles ago. The engine was replaced due to a blown head gasket. I have also kept the original engine and it will be given to the new owner. The radiator was recently repaired completely to prevent overheating. The carburetor was also replaced with a new one as well. The car runs great and will accelerate with no problem. the speedometer displays accurate speed when driving. I also had new tires installed less than 100 miles ago. This car is hardly driven, nly 1 every two weeks for less than 25 miles.
She comes fully loaded with tons of original Honda OEM accessories! Items includes, OS 78 overhead console, ioneer roof rear speakers, ioneer cassette player, onda rubber floor mats ( small tear on driveside ), ear door card speakers, uggage rack, spoke wood wheel, ront & rear Mud guards, enter storage console, assenger door mirror, dm fog lamps, nd super rare genuine civic turbine wheels + spare! Deluxe gauges were installed as an upgrade from 5 speed models which displays a tachometer and separate fuel and temperature pod in the center of the dash. The Deluxe gauges were also refinishing giving it a new look! I also made a tonneau cover for the rear trunk compartment. JDM rs Tail lights were installed as well. I also replaced all the exterior emblems with NOS ones. the only ones that are not nos but were personally refinished by me are the grill cvcc and the two side fender emblems. These accessories are a super rare gem and almost impossible to find.
The Paint on the car is original. I took the liberty to refinish or replace all the small details on the car to make it look even more new. the front grill was refinished by me. The headlights are changed with hella glass headlights h4 conversion W/HID kit. NOS oem windshield molding were installed. There is not one cracked lens on any of the marker lamps. the chrome on all the lights are still very shiny and are not pitting in any way. The car does have a few dings and very minor surface rust ( about less than 5% )in some areas but not an issue at all. The car overall shines nicely in the sun and alway a head turner.
The interior is in excellent condition with the exception of some repair marks on the driver left bottom and upper bolster. However, do have spare oem blue interior fabric which will be given to the new owner so you can get the seat redone to look as good as new as the rest of the interior. All the knobs switches are in good to pristine condition! nos headlight switch, azard switch, nd intermittent wiper switch was installed. The dash is perfect with no cracks or signs of wear in the wood grain on the dash itself, ust phenomenal! Trunk area is also super clean. one rear seat has the 3 point seat belt conversion. The interior roof liner and sun visors are very clean however there is a small tear near the driver side corner but cannot be seen when the sun visors are up.
I am willing to sell the car without the front grill emblem, ear civic cvcc emblem, spoke wood wheel, onda cassette player, verhead console, ear roof speakers, ear door card speakers, dm rs tail lights, ubber floor mats, og lamp kit, nd turbine wheels for $9,000. I will remove all of those parts and replace the emblems, 2" oem wheels, nd regular oem 3 spoke non-wood wheel. Or everything as is for $13,000. This car is pretty much original, ot restored with aftermarket parts.
I honestly do not wish to part ways, ut it's time for me to let her go. I hope this beauty will go to a good new home!
