Bonkers Acura-Powered Mid-Engine 1984 Honda Civic Can Be Yours

The third-generation Honda Civic from the mid-’80s is just one of my personalized favorites, and I really want to buy just one for a venture car. Its boxy condition and full rear glass hatch appeal to me a large amount, furthermore the truth that adding human body kits to this generation of the Civic doesn’t make it glance tacky or loud at all. Loads of room for customization, genuinely, and I could have uncovered a fantastic illustration of it on Bring a Trailer.

There is certainly just just one challenge, however – it doesn’t have an motor under the hood.

You should not be concerned, it does have an motor but it is uncovered on the second row in put of the rear seats. Certainly, people, this is a mid-motor Civic hatchback from the ’80s, and it is up for auction at Bring a Trailer (extra photos and details there).

The full conversion to a mid-motor, rear-wheel push was carried out by Andy Barcheck from Bremerton, Washington involving 1987-1992. Due to the fact then, the car went via a large amount of homeowners until finally the most recent just one decides to sell it. It is great to see in great condition even immediately after all these a long time.

To home the 3.two-liter Acura J32A2 V6 motor at the back again, a customized-fabricated rear subframe has been included, mounted to a carpeted and insulated compartment. This motor is mated to a 6-pace handbook, though the gasoline tank is relocated in the hood, collectively with the spare wheel, a toolbox, and a battery.

This is a bonkers create, I should say, and I think I is not going to want to do anything to up grade this just one-of-a-sort Civic. Well, except for the wheels, possibly.

If you’re as interested as I am, you can put your bid at Bring a Trailer ideal now, which is at this time at $35,520 with 6 days still left. Now, excuse me though I ponder if I must put a bid ideal this immediate.
