1982 Honda Prelude XXR JDM RHD FWD $7,995
This 1982 Honda Prelude XXR is a right-hand-drive Japanese-market example that was reportedly imported as part of a private Los Angeles-based collection. Features include a rear window wiper, cruise control, and an electric sunroof. Power comes from a 1.6L inline-four paired with a three-speed automatic transmission, and an oil and filter change was performed in April 2019. This Prelude is offered in California with Japanese records/manuals and a clean Oregon title in my name.
The first-generation Prelude weighed less then 2,000 pounds. Japanese-market styling cues include fender-mounted mirrors and yellow Cibie foglights, and body panels are finished in two-tone silver/blue with a red stripe. The seller states this Prelude was repainted in the past, and a paint chip near the fuel filler door is highlighted in the photo gallery below.
13×5″ wheels are mounted with Falken Pro Touring all-season tires manufactured in 2018. Braking is provided by front discs and rear drums.
Seats are upholstered in patterned cloth. The passenger-rear backrest cushion can be folded down for increased cargo capability, as demonstrated in the gallery.
Per the seller a Japanese-band Pioneer cassette deck is fitted. The factory air conditioning system remains but does not blow cold according to the seller. The 5-digit odometer shows approximately 1,500 kilometers and is believed to have rolled over once.
The front-hinged hood opens to reveal a naturally-aspirated 1.6L inline-four, which developed 79 horsepower and 93 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent through a three-speed automatic transmission. An engine oil/filter change was completed recently.
Pictures of various Japanese records are displayed in the gallery.
