    new to the site! check out my 1983 civic hatchback

    Hello everybody.
    I am a new member to this site. i saw this car for sale five days ago. so i sold another one of my cars, turned around and not an hour later was driving this home.
    it is a 1983 honda civic 5 speed hb. the back emblem says it is an S, but i am not 100% sure about that. it does not have a sunroof or an S badge on the front grill. it does have a tach inside.
    so can someone confirm if it is a S?
    we found the original owners manual in the glove box. the back page says it was originally purchased in FEB of 1983 at scottsdale honda in az. so it has been an AZ car its whole life. NO RUST!!
    we drove it for about 50 miles yesterday and have had no problems. the ac is still ice cold, ftw!
    The original stereo was not in the car but it had a cd deck from 1999 that didnt work, so the first thing i did was break out the old wire cutters and installed a new deck last night. luckily the car isnt too old where a new stereo isnt an eye sore.
    my wife wanted me to watch a chick flick with her last night so i pulled of the beauty rings on the wheels and polished them up during the movie.
    i will get more pictures soon. these are just from my cell phone.

    yeah, so I pretty much can't figure out how to post a pic that isn't a link. Lol

    I've also been searching the interwebs for hours trying to find a few odds and ends pieces for the car. Does anyone know a good site for ordering parts for this civic. I'm hoping to find the type s honeycomb grill, the front spoiler and side molding.
    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Nice civic! I know it isn't a first gen civic, but the folks over at 1stgencivic dot com can help you find just about anything you need - if it still exists.

    Good to see another hatch on the road!

    Yes it is an S model. They only came in red and black. I don't believe the base model came in red.
