For Sale: 1981 Honda Civic in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

There are just not too many 1981 Honda Civic DX like this around anymore, and so it's instantly attractive. And when you see that this has all the right features, including the larger engine, five-speed, and even A/C, it proves that this is a fun classic offered for a value price.

This car has the look of care, and that's because of the background we were told. The consignor bought it from a buddy that served in Vietnam with him, and so it has remained in his family for a while and shows the right love/investments along the way. More than just a nice backstory, this one remains desirable for its extras, like the upgraded LED driving lights and later application of metallic blue paint. There are even cool touches of sporty attitude with the heat extractors in the hood, front spoiler, flared fenders, and black wheels that go well with the bumpers and grille. It's an attractive style on what is absolutely a driver-quality package. That means it's not trying to be a concours car, but it's something you can drive to a Radwood event even if it's a few hours away.

The blue interior is distinctly attractive against the blue exterior. Part of being a driver-level car means not everything is perfect. So you may want to invest in a new dash or other details. But what a driver's car really means is that the investments are there to be quite engaging from day one. So you have good-looking newer upholstery, including on the comfortable high-back front bucket seats. The upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input means the best in driving music, and there's even cold-blowing air conditioning.

Part of why these Civics have such a great following today is the driving experience. The CVCC motor was known for being both exceptionally hardy and quite lively. And this 1500cc was the larger of the two available. You get to take full control of it with the five-speed manual transmission. The way this full package fires up, runs, and shifts, all have the solid feeling of proper care. The power brakes, front discs, and nice details like a newer muffler, and this classic remains a great driver. And these almost feel like the modern version of the original Mini Cooper because you have a great nimble road feel from direct steering and a fully independent suspension.

Fun, distinct, affordable, and even a great story - this Civic represents a cool classic no one has seen in a while, and because it's a blast to drive, you'll love reminding everyone about it everywhere. Call today!!!
