This 1994 Honda Del Sol was the first year to be equipped from the
factory with the optional 160hp DOHC VTEC (8200 RPM redline) engine
and 5 speed manual transmission. It is a true low mileage (59k),
rust free, survivor of the 90's Japanese pocket rocket era.
It is fully optioned with air conditioning, cruise control, targa
top, electric mirrors, side windows and a retractable rear window!
The vehicle body structure, wheel wells, door edges etc. are
completely rust free. Paint is original. It has original wheels and
comes with jack, space saver spare tire, owners manual and factory
workshop manuals. It is eligible for classic car insurance and
currently insured by Haggerty.
Quantum Race Works, a respected Honda race shop in Selkirk, NY, has
serviced the car. Less than 3k miles ago they replaced the clutch
with an Exeedy stage one package. They also upgraded the suspension
and performed a 4 wheel alignment. A new Interstate battery was
installed. The engine received a full tune up with original
equipment factory Honda parts. A K&N element replaces the
original air filter. Evans waterless coolant is also used. Brake
pads were replaced and the full system flushed. Brakes and clutch
have seen less than 3K of use.
This Del Sol came from the factory with 40 more horsepower than the
Miata of the day! It also offered more interior room and had a much
larger trunk. The Del Sol's targa top provided for open air
motoring and more security when the vehicle was locked up The
totally unique retractable electric rear window made for a quiet,
turbulence free open air ride. When combined with Honda's
jewell-like 8200 RPM DOHC VTEC engine and 5 speed, it made the Del
Sol one of the most unique Japanese pocket rockets of the era!
