The original Honda Civic was launched over 50 years ago and is one of the best-selling cars worldwide, with over 27 million variants sold.
The second-generation Civic was introduced in 1979, being larger and more angular than its predecessor with increased engine power. Fuel economy was vastly improved with the new CVCC designed engines introducing learn-burn swirl technology. Three transmission options were offered, a 4 speed manual on base models, 5 speed and a semi-automatic, referred to as the Hondamatic.
Delivered new by The Honda Car Centre, Bexhill-on-Sea in August 1983, to its first and only owner, finished in Avignon Blue Metallic with Blue interior trim. The car was maintained by the supplying dealer and afterwards by a Honda Technician who retired from the dealership but retained a relationship with the owner and a good understanding of the car.
The car is so utterly original and corrosion free, having been undersealed from new. An absolute pleasure to drive and still feels tight with no squeaks or rattles.
We have conducted a cambelt change, replaced the exhaust system and radiator and the current MOT which is advisory free is valid until 25th May, 2024.
An unrepeatable example, being one of only six cars remaining in the UK and a great addition to any JDM collection.
