Icon5 1979 prelude

just found out my stepmoms friend has an ALL original 79 lude. He told me he was gonna junk it unless i wanted it it needs a new fender and bumper cover but thats it. its got 80000 original miles on it and hes the original owner. its been sitting for awhile (1.5 yrs) but there is no rust on it at all. If i got this car and repaired it and threw some paint on it (professional of course) how much $$ would this be worth to another enthusiast. I really don't have room for it or the money to really make a full on restoration project out of it but i figured i could ask around and try to make some cash on the deal and keep another prelude from becoming a junkyard tradgity

That's bad ass man. I'm not sure what it'd be worth after you fix her back up, but I'm sure there's a Honda fan out there somewhere that would take. Good luck with the build man, should be fun.

Re: 1979 prelude

It's probably going to be a better turn around if you just source some necessary parts and flip it. If you paint it and such you will have a lot invested and most people in to cult cars (1st gen lude) are going to want it don't their way. Not yours. Know what I mean?

Re: 1979 prelude

ive spent well over two years searching for a 1st gen that was worth the time and money and have turned up nothing around these parts. if its half as good as you make it seem dont let it be one more victim to the crusher or doom it to a life sinking in the earth in a scrap yard... just my two cents.

Re: 1979 prelude

hey guys im waiting for pics from the guy
but heres a lil history
he bought it in 1980 and still has the papers
in 1984 he got in a fender bender and it has sat since 1987
he SAYS no visible rust (doubt it)
engine prob needs rebuilt
deff needs hood and front driver fender
interior is PERFECT
after i buff the age off the paint and get the new hood an panels and if the engine runs good what do you think i could make off of this if i end up getting it from him?

Re: 1979 prelude

you won't make any money fixing this. you'll lose in the end. get the car from him and sell it as is to an enthusiast. it's they only way you'll make a few bucks

Re: 1979 prelude

if your getting the car for free the only way you could lose money is if you spend more on it fixing it then you sell it for in the end.... if you have time and nothing to do then i would do as much possible without spending money before you start buying things for it. you would be surprised what you can get done just by cleaning and repairing small things before you actually start dropping money in it.
