  • Only 74,000 miles from new

  • Supplied with the original book pack including stamped service book
  • Rare and highly original survivor, that was supplied new to the United Kingdom

Honda cars have always been synonymous with being the sensible shoes of motoring, but occasionally they do produce a Nike Air Jordan 1 (ask a teenager), with the CRX being one such car. Sharp styling, lightweight and a peppy twin-cam all alloy 1,600cc engine giving Honda a best-seller, both at home and abroad. Rev-hungry, beautifully engineered and fine-handling, few cars in their modern history are such fine examples of this philosophy as the CRX. Finished with Honda’s usual, meticulous eye for detail, these lovely little retro coupés are becoming tricky to find – especially in good, unmodified condition and with low ownership.

Manufactured new in 1989 and destined for the United Kingdom, chassis number 114009 was supplied new by Eddy Grimstead Motor Co. Honda distributors of East Ham, London. Finished in Honda Polar White paintwork with Grey ‘CRX’ embossed fabric front sports seats and Black vinyl rear bench seat, the Honda is fitted with the 1.6-litre D16A9 four-cylinder DOHC engine allied to the five-speed manual transmission. Purchased by the business partner of the vendor for his wife, she is said to have not enjoyed the driving experience, so the vendor purchased the car for his wife 1990. Retained by her until her passing in 2005, the CRX was then changed into the vendor's name and used by him daily until last year.

Covering just a modest mileage of just shy of 74,000 miles from new, ‘G464 VMP’ has been serviced annually while in the vendor's ownership, although not all the services are documented in the history file. said history file contains the original book pack in the Honda wallet that includes the owner’s handbook and service book, a collection of previous MOTs, and a current V5C document. Boasting many original stickers and the dealer number plates both front and back, the CRX is offered with a toolkit and a spare centre rear light piece, and one rear edge light cluster. Highly appealing and collectible, these retro Japanese cars have steadily risen in appeal and value, and with pleasing mileage and ownership history, this is surely a great example to acquire.
