FS: 1989 Civic Si (Nearly Stock)

Post by KaiZen »

NAME: TRACY

LOCATION: GULF BREEZE, FL

CAR: 1989 Honda Civic Si (Charlotte)

VIN: 2HGED7364KH524707

MILEAGE: 219,093

PRICE: $3500 OBO
(Also have 2k worth of new OEM parts ** Not Included**)

TITLE: CLEAN

CONTACT: PM, TEXT OR CALL (9043868228)

REASON FOR SALE: Time to move on

I purchased this car back in 2007 from the original owner. I waxed the hell out of it and re-painted the trim... I looked soo good, I decided that I just wanted to keep it stock. Since then it has been my daily driver. Back and forth from North Carolina to Florida a few times and never a problem. I have thought on multiple occasions to maybe paint it or even do some sort of swap, but every time I’ve talked myself out of because she is much more original in the condition than say a EF with a B16 swap or JDM front. The only thing I did was swap the stock rusted exhaust for the HKS Sports exhaust. It’s the best looking EF exhaust in my opinion other than the Mugen.
Recently, I purchased around $1500 worth of OEM 1991 Civic Si parts (1989 parts are pretty much dried up now) because I planned to paint her when I returned from deployment. Now that I’m back, I’ve lost all motivation to do so. She’s a great car in great condition for her age. Hopefully someone who appreciates EF’s will be her next owner.


ENGINE/DRIVETRAIN
Stock
HKS Sport Cat-back Exhaust

EXTERIOR
- Stock

WHEELS/BRAKES/SUSPENSION
- Stock / New OEM Brakes in 2010 / Stock

INTERIOR
Stock for the most part. Panasonic CD player and XM radio tuner installed
The original owner cut the wiring harness radio connector off and had a cd player hard wired in. I didn't realize this until I went to put in a new CD player and noticed the mess. I ended up having to cut his mess out and re-splice every wire ( very clean now)


THE GOOD:

Near stock 1989 Civic Si
Still runs strong
Interior is in great condition other than drive seat tear (very common)
Fully operational sunroof w/ no rust
Still gets around 36-37 mpg
Only rust spot is a small 2” x 2” square on the right rear quarter panel from a ding.

THE BAD:

- A/C is not working; compressor is seized. All parts are still there, but I have never really cared enough about A/C to fix it.

The car is 23 years old, so it has some minor dings and the original paint is starting to crack. One of the taillights has a 1/4 inch hole in it and the taillight center garnish is cracked.

The left tailgate upper shock mount nut is broke (is originally welded inside of tailgate frame).

If this car is still available by the time my tax return hits the bank (2-3 weeks) I'll buy it. But you have to include the new tailights ;) Been looking for a bone stock 89 ed7 for a long time. 1 question... was it manufactured in Japan or Canada. The 89's made in Japan have thinner gauge sheet metal in various places and therfore are about 50 pounds lighter. The VIN plate in the drivers door jam should tell the story.

I know everything ;) but honestly I've never read anything about the thinner gauge steel, I heard this from a fellow autoxer who piloted a 89 si for years. In the street touring class everyone prefers the 89 over the 91 because of the weight difference and they say the japan made ed7 was even lighter. So yeah it may or may not be true but I'm pretty sure it's accurate info.

Being that this is a florida/ carolina car, it's pretty safe to say it's rust free, not to mention how clean the car is, doesn't appear to be wrecked and was porbally taken well care of. A perfect buy for a lucky enthusiaste. I bet it's already sold :(

Hmm, maybe the differences is that the 88-91 U.S. or Canadian made civic had galvanized metal, and the JAPAN made civics didnt..

Who knows.

I'm not sure of the numbers buy I've heard that the Japanees manufactured Si sold in the states are kind of a rare find.

It's a Canadian manufactured car. The first digit of the vin is the country it was manufactured. 2 is Canada, J is Japan.
