Last month a a friend gave me his very tired '76 Civic. Engine had blown and I was looking to maybe fix it up.
Thanks to Craigslist, found this beauty just 1 mile from my home. A '77 Civic 5 speed, garaged in dry storage since 1989. Engine had blown and threw a rod, owner put in a used engine (it was bad too) so he bought a brand new engine from the Honda dealer, put it in the car... and never touched it again for 21 years. The engine has never been turned over. Paid $360 for the entire car! Very minor rust, a small crunch on the right front fender. He took it out of the garage, rolled it into the front yard, put it on Craigslist, got 4 hits on it in a matter of hours and I trailered it home that day.
Perfect car for a solid resto. Great way to start the new year!
