(Note: While I am not making any guarantee as to their ultimate reliability, oth these cars should be drivable for purposes of transporting to a new home, nd towards that end, e will make sure that they both have a fresh oil change and filter, s well as a full tank of premium fuel if a new owner wishes to come pick them up and drive home. Alternatively, am happy to assist a transporter (of your choice, nd under contract to You) in the loading of the car on a truck) We have had customers buy our restored cars from as far away as Vancouver, t. Louis, alifornia, nd Europe!

The car exhibits what is called in the collector car community, mild "patina" of originality. On the inside, he car is exceptionally clean, he carpet and seats are not torn and the cargo area and spare tire area appear almost new (the spare doesn't appear to have ever been used!)The car comes witha 3-ring binder filled with service documentation since new! including original purchase and window label.

This car rides like no other CRX and has got to be experienced to be believed. It's takes corners like its on rails and handles like the ultimate slot car... it's definitely not for the faint of heart!Yet, ll of the upgrades are reversible, nd most of them are "stealth" so the car stilllooks mostly stock, nd not like somegrotesque mess that a kid slapped together in his garage!On top of that, t's a very well preserved and well known CRX in the 1g CRX community nationwide, nd especially in California and the west coast where it spent most of it's life. Now,its available here on the east coast for someone who wantswhat could be Ultimateold school CRX.
Note: This would be an ideal car for a 1) ZC / D16A twin cam swap(brown top or black top Integra motor)and 2) Rear disc conversion....... GO FOR IT!!!- Now, ithout further ado.... we present to you a selection of close up shots of the Mugen car

CAR #2 2nd Choice - 1987 CRX Si, io Red, 09,xxx miles, his caris for someone who is looking for a high qualitystock looking Si.This carwas owned for many years in Arizona, nd it shows! There is not a spec of rust on the chassis, nd for someone who wants a pristine chassis/body to do ashow quality build,thisexample is easily worth taking to the next level...When I found the car about 8 years ago out west, knew that I had to have it, nd paid $1,000 just to bring it back east. Earlier this year we pulled it out of storage and took off all the old cracked plastic panels and treated the car to one of my best sets of undamaged plastic panels.ALL plastic panels on this car are either undamaged good originalor rebuilt to stronger than new specs! NO CRACKS ON ANY PLASTICS**(We pride ourselves here in our ability to restore the originalplastic panels on these cars tolook as good as new, nd to be more resistant to cracking than the original design ever was. To our knowledge,nobody else in the CRX worldhas developed the techniques to do this as reliably as we can. You will not (short of buying hugely expensive custom made carbon fiber replica panels) find another1st gen CRX with plastic nose, ender, nd side panelsthat look at good as the ones on this car!!)**.

About us - CRXpertWe are theonly shop on the east coast of the US which for the past 8 years has specialized in the correct and proper restoration of Honda CRX cars. As these cars are now at least 25, nd in some cases more than 30 years old, hey have passed the time of being simply 'used cars', nd have entered the domain of becoming a true classic, r 'vintage collectible' car. While other tuning shops are focused on doing swaps and other customization to the 1980's-90's era CRX's and Civics, ehave decided to use our deep experience in the world of high end ($40,000-$250,000) vintage European classic restorations tofocus on doing correct and proper RESTORATION work to bring these cars back as close as possible tohow they looked when they appeared in Honda showrooms. This is no easy task, s Honda does not support their cars after they have reached this age and virtually no NOS parts are available for the CRX at this point in time. Therefore, e have gone to great lengths to search out, ind, nd horde as many NOS and good condition used parts for these cars as possible, nd also we have developed specific techniques to restore and refurbish parts of the cars (such as the plastic body panels and rubber moldings) that are simply not available anymore. The work we do here onour Civics and CRX's is a Labor of LOVE. After spending 100's of hours bringing these cars up to the level of quality and appearance you see here, e could not possibly recoup the investment we have in time and materials, ven if the cars sell at or above our asking price!If you have a 3g or 4g Civic or 1g or 2g CRX which you've been hoping to bring back to its former glory and would like the help of a shop which knows exactly what it takes to do this, eel free to contact us.Our shop rates are very reasonable,(for Honda's only)and wehave a limited amount of unbooked time for the coming winter season and would be happy to discuss a restoration project specifically tailored to your wishes.
