I’ll start this off by saying, it’s a bit overpriced. The seller is asking for $5,000, but there is that delightful three-letter follow-up of “OBO”. The car in question here is a 1989 Honda Civic Wagon, and it’s the rather interesting RT4WD version.
Under the hood will be a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that was originally good for 108 horsepower. Here it’s paired with a six-speed manual gearbox (instead of a four-speed automatic, which was also offered), and it sends power out to all four wheels.
This particular example is lowered and rides on a set of BBS wheels. There’s a bit of bracing in the rear, and the seller states that the car runs perfectly. We love the look. We love the engine and transmission combo. We don’t love the price.
Regardless, if someone can scoop this up for a bit less than the asking figure, we think it will make a great daily driver. It can get the groceries, and then with a bit of under-hood tinkering it can also hit the local autocross circuit.
