Value of Blown Engine 97 Prelude

Hey, I used to own a prelude a couple years ago. I sold it due to frame damage and Im looking to get back into one.

My friend has one that has been sitting for a while with some engine problems. Exterior is in okay shape, the hood needs paint. it's a 5 spd. I cant remember if its base or not but that doesnt mater much to me. The most important part is that its AC is working which is why Im looking at it to replace my daily driver 94 Accord.


what is a fair price that I should pay for it assuming worst case scnerio that it needs a new engine?

I can swap in a low milage H22 in my garage so labor is not an issue.


Sorry I cant get pics for a better estimate but thanks for your help in advance!

Re: Value of Blown Engine 97 Prelude

with a good engine and good paint it's worth 5 grand.

offer him no more than $1500. Like the other guys said, you don't lknow what else is wrong.
