Ebay's Vin restrictions wouldn't accept the JDM Vin. So I had to put in an older year for the car. It's a 1988 Prelude.
This is an amazing car. The 4 wheel steering handles like no car I've driven. Runs and drives like new. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross country. It runs & drives like a Honda with very low miles.
I will do my best to describe the car and what I've done during my ownership. It's a JDM with features that were not on US spec models. Rear window wiper and washer spray (and both work), Acura Integra climate controls, turn signals on front fenders, Honda floor mats that are unique to JDM and a Honda trunk mat/tray that I have never seen before. This generation of Prelude is hard to find and even more difficult with low miles and then add in that it's a JDM and this may be one of the only ones in the US. I have 2 keys. Registered in Arizona and in my name. Free and clear title.
I've done the following and have receipts for all work: New timing belt, water pump, radiator hoses, radiator flush, AC belt, Alt belt, plugs, wires, air filter, oil and oil filter (Mobil One), transmission flush and new fluid, new battery, window tinting. The drive-train is easily a 9.5. Idles perfectly. Transmission shifts are smooth. Cruises down the road straight and with ease.
I had to add new tires and wheels. What it came with were already aftermarket and they were old and ugly. The tires were dry rotted. So, $1300 later it has new wheels and tires with less than 1K miles on them.
The interior is a 9.5. No rips or tears in seats or mats. Headliner is perfect. No cracks in the dash. Garage kept since I've owned it. I have classic car ins. on it. The only thing I changed from factory was to add a new stereo with Bluetooth for hands free calling. The AC is ice cold. The heat is hot. All gauges and lights work. The sunroof works perfectly. Power windows work (driver's side is power down and I'm pretty sure that was JDM only). Power mirrors. Headlights pop up and work as they should.
The power antenna does not work. I receive all radio stations so I haven't worried about it. One of the fog lights does not work. It's been lowered. Rides great.
Odometer is in Kilometers. Very low miles on a 30+ year old car. Japanese Vin:100E019163027
I believe it's been repainted. Looks like original color. Shines and looks great. The body is great. There is a scuff on the front spoiler lip. I'd put the exterior at an 8. The windshield wiper arms need cleaned and painted. They work but I've never driven it in the rain since it rarely rains in the desert.
When I do drive it and that's not often I get people wanting to talk about how this generation Prelude is their favorite and they want to share stories about theirs or a friend who had one. Lots of thumbs up at red lights. It really is a nice car.
