1979 Honda Accord LX
1979 Honda Accord LX
This 1979 Honda Accord LX is a one owner survivor with 56,900 documented miles. 1.8L CVCC engine and two speed semi auto transmission. Well maintained from day one with a full service history. Original amazingly preserved interior and 95% original paint. The front fenders where repaired and repainted under warranty in 1984. No bodywork since. The underhood area is well kept with the discoloration present actually being the rust proofing and not rust. We have had a discussion here on whether to keep that or clean it off. Much deliberation later we decided that it has helped preserve the car for almost forty years. Lets keep it and leave it up to the new owner to decide if they want concourse levels of clean. This is a full optioned car, every option available in 1979 is present. Dual mirrors, window rain guards, rear defog, fender trim, functional quartz clock and working a/c. The only non functional element and only non factory piece is the period installed aftermarket tape deck. Driving this car is a truly one of a kind experience, it goes down the road straight and smooth with not a rattle or shake to be found. Shifting the two speed semi auto gearbox is far removed from anything on the road today, but is still accomplished with the slickness and ease we have come to expect from Honda products almost forty years later.
This car was stored in a climate controlled garage its whole life and parked the last 20 years after the original owner passed away. The parking passes, his hardhat and ear plugs from driving to work on his last day of the cars use are still in the car all these years later. A true time capsule.
All paper work from dealer agreements, to warranty repair slips and service records will go along with the car, proving its well cared for history and documenting the low mileage. A new battery was installed along with new tires to replace the dry rotted ones that where on the car in storage and a box of both aftermarket and new old stock replacement parts that the original owner collected so many years ago are also included.
