How much is a brand new Honda Accord LX hatchback worth? $21,000 and counting, apparently. Listed for sale in Annville, Pennsylvania, the Hampstead Green 1981 example is quite possibly the lowest mileage first-gen Accord in the country that is not in a museum somewhere. It has just 4,651 miles on the clock.
According to the auction, it was purchased new at Rudy Luther Honda in Hopkins, Minnesota, located within three miles of the buyer’s house. It was then sold in 2007 with 1,998 miles and only 1,600 or so were added since. Everything is claimed to be working perfectly, and even the tag imploring you to read the optional stereo’s operating instructions still hangs from the tuning knob. Its matching green velour remains uncrushed by human butt.
The car could easily sell itself, but the seller still annoys with his grating “put a red bow on it, add a box of chocolates, and this jade jewel is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift” sales pitch. Typically, adding a 36-year-old car that you can’t drive for fear of adding miles to the household is grounds for divorce.
Anyway, if you’re looking to fast-track a dissolution of your marriage this Valentine’s Day, or just happen to be with a very understanding partner that loves first-gen Accords, you have three days to add your bid to the 21 existing clicks. Check out the auction on eBay.
