Not only is the Pick of the Day a candidate for “young classic” status, but the dealer offering it for sale says this 1982 Honda Civic 1300FE is in “Mint Condition” and is a “Timewarp” example, seemingly in “showroom-like” condition.
The car is advertised on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, but the dealer notes that the car is not at its location but at the home of the client, wherever that might be.
According to the advertisement, the “Arctic silver paint shines as new with no dings, scratches, rust or other damage… never in the body shop for any damage or repairs. Gray interior is as new with all possible Honda Accessories.”
The car even comes with two sets of Honda alloy wheels, a spare transaxle, factory and “Haines” service manuals, dealer parts catalog, owner’s manuals, sales brochure, window sticker, original invoice and other literature.”
The dealer does not, however, reveal the Honda’s mileage.
We think the dealer is quoting the car’s owner in the next section of the ad, which says, “Always garaged, carefully driven in temperate climates and meticulously maintained. This car was running good when it was put into storage, but it will need to be trailered and serviced before it is roadworthy since it has been stored indoors for many years.
“I have been unwilling to part with this car for many years because it is in such immaculate condition and quite frankly because of how good of a car it has been when it was in use. The time has come where we need to make room in our garage for a new car and I am not willing to store this car outdoors.
“I am the original owner… there are no ‘mysteries’ or excuses surrounding this car. Ideally, this car should go into someone’s collection based on the condition that it is in, but in reality what I have is an old Honda Civic. So, it is priced accordingly.”
That price would be $3,495.
