IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 10 FEEDBACK ENTRIES YOU MUST E:MAIL ME PRIOR TO BID OR I WILL DELETE BID AND BLOCK PARTICIPATION. I RESERVE RIGHT TO CANCEL BIDS AND BLOCK  ANYONE I DEEM TO HAVE POOR OR DECEPTIVE FEEDBACK HISTORY.  
THIS AUCTION IS FOR A LIGHTLY WRECKED 1985 HONDA CRX HATCH BACK. HF OR HIGH FUEL MODEL. VERY RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER WITH LOW MILEAGE. 78790. I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THIS EXCEPT IT WAS THE HF MODEL (WHICH SUPPOSEDLY. CAN GET UP TO 50 MPG) WITH 5 SPEED AND AC. HOWEVER. AFTER ABOUT 6 MONTHS OF WORKING ON IT (INCLUDING A REBUILD OF THE ORGINAL CARB AT THE CARB EXCHANGE-THEY ARE ON EBAY AND SPECIALIZE IN IMPORT CARBS-SEE RECEIPT LAST PIC). I'VE BECOME FRUSTRATED AND AM  READY TO GIVE UP.
I BOUGHT THIS CAR LAST DECEMBER. IT HAS A CLEAR NON SALVAGE ARKANSAS TITLE IN MY NAME. WHEN I BOUGHT IT. IT WOULD START WITH DIFFICULTY AND WOULD NOT IDLE FOR CRAP. CARB WOULD STAY REVVED. I DRAINED THE GAS TANK. BLEW THE LINES WITH COMPRESSED AIR AND REFILLED THE TANK WITH FRESH FUEL. I ALSO INSTALLED A NEW FUEL PUMP. NEW DIST CAP. NEW NGK PLUGS. PLUG WIRES AND AIR FILTER. IT DID NOT MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE FOR THE IDLING. I REMOVED THE CARB (WHICH TOOK ME ABOUT 4 HOURS WITH ALL THE FREAKIN VACUUM LINES). I SENT IT OFF FOR REBUILD ON 4/2014. I REINSTALLED IT TWO WEEKS AGO. PRETTY SURE I HAVE ALL THE VACUMM LINES CORRECT AS I TOOK PICS BEFORE REMOVAL AND LABELED THEM ALL WITH TAPE. USED THE FACTORY CARB PLASTIC SPACER PLATE WHICH IS IN GOOD SHAPE. IT STARTS MUCH EASIER NOW. BUT IT STILL IDLES HIGH. SOMETIMES IT WILL IDLE AROUND 1200 RPM AT START. THEN WILL SOMETIMES  GO UP TO 2000 RPM. AND WHEN I HIT THE KICKDOWN. IT WILL SOMETIME GO UP EVEN HIGHER. UP TO 3K RPM. I'VE GOTTEN PRETTY SICK OF MESSING WITH IT. I THOUGHT I MIGHT HAVE THE THROTTLE LINKAGES MALADJUSTED (AS I LOOSENED THEM) BUT REALLY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S THE CAUSE. THE CARB EXCHANGE PRE TEST/RUN THESE CARBS ON ACTUAL ENGINES BEFORE THEY SHIP THEM. AND SO. THE IDLE IS PRE SET. I'M NOT GOING TO MONKEY AROUND WITH THE IDLE SCREWS AS I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S THE PROBLEM. BUT I DON'T KNOW THE CAUSE. ENGINE SOUNDS FINE. NO KNOCKS OR NOISE. THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT COMMUTER CAR WITH THE MILEAGE THESE THINGS ARE CAPABLE OF. SPEEDOMETER. TACH. WIPERS. WIPER SPRITZER. FAN. TURN SIGNALS. EMERGENCY LIGHTS ALL WORK. RADIO IN OP. I HAVE NOT CHECKED FUSEBOX.
ANYWAY. I CAN ONLY RUN IT FOR A COUPLE MINUTES AS THE RADIATOR IS MISSING. I WAS GOING TO BUY A NEW ONE AT AUTOZONE ($113. 00 DOLLARS) AND SEE IF THE IDLE WOULD COME DOWN AFTER IT RAN A BIT MORE. BUT I THINK I'M DONE WITH THE BEAST.
AS FOR THE MECHANICALS. I HAVE ONLY RUN IT DOWN THE STREET TO MAKE SURE IT GOES THROUGH ALL GEARS AND REVERSE. IT SHIFTS SMOOTHLY AND EASILY. NO WEIRD NOISES AND THE VEHICLE DOES NOT WOBBLE OR SHIMMY. HOWEVER. UNDERSTAND. YOU ARE BUYING A VEHICLE THAT I HAVE NOT RUN FOR MORE THAN 5-6 MINUTES TOTAL OR DRIVEN MORE THAN A 1/2 MILE (BECAUSE OF THE MISSING RADIATOR).
THE CORE SUPPORT WILL PROBABLY NEED A LITTLE TWEAKING TO MAKE EVERYTHING LINE UP. IT OBVIOUSLY NEEDS A NEW FRONT CAP. BUT THE DAMAGE DID NOT APPEAR TO AFFECT ANYTHING STRUCTURAL IN NATURE (AND I'VE BEEN AROUND. OVER AND UNDER IT. AND AS STATED. NO ISSUES NOTED DURING BRIEF TEST DRIVE). THERE ARE NUMEROUS. SMALL THINGS/FLAWS NEEDED ON THIS VEHICLE. HOOD IS CRINKED UNDERNEATH ON DRIVER SIDE EDGE. DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE COLLISION DAMAGE AS EDGES ARE FINE. I THINK HOOD WAS CLOSED ON TOP OF THE PROP ROD AND GOT BENT. I WAS PLANNING TO JUST HAVE A WELDING SHOP WELD A SMALL 1/8 THICK REINFORCEMENT PLATE TO IT. REAR RIGHT TAIL LIGHT IS CRACKED. BOTH BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON CONSTANLY. THE TRUNK LID HAS SOME SMALL HOLES ON TOP WHERE THE REAR SPOILER WAS. THE DOOR PANELS HAVE SOME CRACKS AND MISSING PIECES. ALL GLASS IS GOOD. THE AC LIGHT COMES ON WHEN THE BUTTON IS PRESSED. I CANNOT TELL IF THE COMPRESSOR COMES ON. RADIATOR AND CONDENSOR ARE GONE. THERE IS SOME KIND OF FUNKY BLACK ROLL OUT COVER THAT YOU CAN EXTEND IN THE BACK HATCH. I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S FACTORY OR NOT. THE GAS DOOR AND HATCH PULL RELEASES ON FLOOR BOTH WORK. THE EXTERIOR LOWER PLASTIC SKIRTING PIECES HAVE CRACKS AND MISSING PIECES. BOTH PLASTIC FRONT FENDERS ARE CRACKED AND MISSING SOME PIECES ON EDGES. I DO HAVE THE CORNER MARKER LIGHTS WITH CONNECTORS. TIRES ARE CRACKED. THE BRAKES WORK BUT ARE WEAK. THEY PROBABLY NEED REBUILD. HOOD RELEASE LATCH IS PRESENT BUT NOT BOLTED INTO CORE SUPPORT. FLOOR PANS ARE SOLID (SEE PIC). LOOKS TO BE ORIGINAL CARPET. SEATS ETC. NO RUST THROUGH I HAVE DETECTED. THERE IS SOME KIND OF FITTING ON THE PASSENGER INNER SIDE FLOORBOARD. I HAVEN'T A CLUE WHAT IT'S FOR. THOUGHT MAYBE SOMEONE TRIED TO RUN IT ON LNG AT SOME POINT BUT I REALLY DON'T KNOW. THE BATTERY IS NOT INCLUDED. I DIDN'T BUY THE CAR WITH ONE AND THE BATTERY I'M USING IS FOR MY CAR HAULER. ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. I'M NOT A HONDA OR CRX EXPERT (OBVIOUSLY). IT LOOKS TO BE ALL ORIGINAL PAINT. AND I DON'T BELIEVE IT'S EVER BEEN HOT RODDED OR MODIFIED BY THE 'KID' CROWD. AS SO MANY OF THESE THINGS ARE. YOU CAN SEE THE FACTORY VIN STICKERS/PLATES ON THE CORE SUPPORT AND DOOR FRAME ARE IN PLACE. I HAVE PURCHASED SOME PARTS FOR THIS. INCLUDING A FACTORY HOOD (IF THE PROPOSED WELDING JOB DIDN'T WORK) AND PLASTIC DOOR PANELS (UNCRACKED). WINNING BIDDER CAN HAVE THEM FOR $150. 00 TOTAL IF DESIRED. OR I'LL JUST LIST THEM AFTER CAR SELLS.
I BELIEVE THIS CAR. WITH THIS MILEAGE. AND BEING A HF MODEL. COULD BRING 5-7K RESTORED. I ALSO BELIEVE IT WILL TAKE AT LEAST 1-2 GRAND IN PARTS/PIECES TO GET IT THERE. IF YOU CAN DO THE LABOR YOURSELF. VEHICLE MUST BE PAID FOR WITHIN 7 DAYS AUCTION END. NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $200. 00 DUE WITHIN 72 HOURS AUCTION END. BUT I CAN KEEP THE THING IN MY GARAGE WHERE IT CURRENTLY RESIDES FOR A MONTH IF NEEDED. I LIVE ON A CUL DE SAC AND A LARGE CAR HAULER CAN NOT. MAKE THE TURN AROUND AT MY HOUSE. IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO HIRE A CONTRACT SHIPPER. MAKE SURE YOU/THEY ARE AWARE OF THIS AS I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOADING OR HELPING TO LOAD A CONTRACT SHIPPER. I WILL POINT TO THE CAR AND SAY. 'THERE IT IS'. (I HAVE NO ISSUE HELPING A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL LOAD. BUT I'VE HAD SOME BAD EXPERIENCES WITH PAID BID/BOARD JACKA** CONTACT SHIPPERS.
