Might purchase a 1983 honda prelude

I own a 1986 honda crx dx with a weber carb swap, so i love old carbed hondas.

Theres a 1983 honda prelude for sale here in my home town. Its only got 60,000km on it and he wants 1800 dollars. Im going to offer him 1500 and thats it. Im sure not the efi one due the fact that efi wasnt till 85 correct? The car is prety sexy.


Is there any bad things i should look for on the car, rust spots, worn parts. What parts are hard to find and do you think its worth it?

Just the normal old-car things. Like all Preludes, knowing when the timing belt was last changed is a deal-maker. Paint on 2d gens tends to wear on the horizontal surfaces, especially the trunk lid. Probably needs seat covers, too. In general, they're tough cars, though -- finding one with only 60k km on it is a steal.
