One-Owner 1988 Honda CR-X Si 5-Speed

Now available for auction is this 1988 Honda CR-X Si finished in Rio Red over a black cloth interior.  Developed as a front-wheel-drive sport compact car, the CR-X features styling inspired by the Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato and was popular for its performance, handling, and daily practicality.  Significantly updated for the model’s second generation, this 1988 example was debuted with a new double-wishbone suspension and a “Sport Injected” (Si) 16-valve 1.6L four-cylinder engine.  It was purchased new from Miami Honda and is said to have remained under the care of its original owner while receiving all scheduled maintenance at proper intervals.  Showing a clean history on CARFAX and recently serviced with new ignition components and oil, this one-owner 5-speed Honda CR-X Si is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida with approximately 98k miles showing on the odometer.

This CR-X comes finished in Rio Red with black lower body cladding and protective side moldings.  The car has been recently refinished in its original color and the seller reports some unevenness to the finish on the doors as well as overspray on the driver’s side headlight and some trim pieces.  The sunroof panel was replaced with a new aftermarket carbon fiber piece and the taillights show cracks and signs of age.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.  A set of factory 14” alloy wheels have been fitted and dressed in new Starfire Solarus AS tires.

Inside, the black cloth interior is described to have been kept in very good original condition aside from a small tear on the driver’s seat bolster and slight warping of the headliner.  The A/C has been recently charged and all gauges and accessories are said to remain functional including the rear window wiper, power sunroof, and original radio unit.

This Si model features a 16-valve 1590cc "D16A6" engine with multi-point fuel injection (MPFI).  The front wheels are driven through a 5-speed manual transmission.  A new 4-wheel double-wishbone suspension was introduced for the 1988 model year along with a rear anti-roll bar and variable-ratio rack-and-pinion steering for Si models.  Routine maintenance is said to have been kept up to date throughout the lifetime of the vehicle by its original owner and recent service is said to include new spark plugs, ignition wires, and an oil change.

This sale will include a spare tire, jack, toolkit, and a clean title. One of the most popular Japanese sport compact cars of its era, this one-owner CR-X Si is just waiting to be driven and enjoyed.

    @PArealtor pls see reply below. I also uploaded pics of the wheel wells. Did both rear and front. No rust.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @RonMan2 the shop wasn’t able to accommodate me (again), so I tried my best at taking some pictures of the bottom. I’ve just sent them to PCarmarket, so they should be up soon. Hope they help.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @UFCPA Absolutely. Send me a private message and I’ll send you my contact info so we can set something up. Thanks!

  • UFCPA (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Nice car. I see that you are in the Miami area. Would you be open to allowing me to see the car with a mechanic?

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @16v4age unless I’m totally missing something the only rust I see in the engine bay is some surface rust on the brackets (bolt on brackets) that are on the radiator support. There is nothing that would require immediate attention. Those parts can be taken off, sanded and painted.

  • 16v4age (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Thank you sir, also I spy a few rust area on the engine bay. Anything major that needs attention?

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    The shop that was pending me their lift got a little busy and couldn’t accommodate me today. I’ll be back tomorrow for those pics. Thanks.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @16v4age I just sent the only pics I have of the car before the respray. I also uploaded pics of the original window sticker, books, and other paperwork I had for it. I’m sure they’ll have the pics up soon.

  • 16v4age (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Do you have any photos before the respray?

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @n_l Please see my previous comment. And to the rest of the people reading these comments. Sorry for the multiple comments. I thought I could tag multiple people in one comment, but I was wrong. This is the last one. I promise!

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @ECCRalph Please see my previous comment where I tried tagging you about the info on the paint. Thanks!

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @PArealtor please see my previous comment. I tried to tag you in it, but I think I failed at it.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Hi everyone! Here's a quick update...

    @n_l - Just finished setting up an appointment for tomorrow afternoon so I can get the car up on a lift and take the undercarriage pictures I promised. I will take pictures of the rear wheel wells for @PArealtor as well.

    @RonMan2 - The paint that was used is Axalfa (Formerly known as DuPont). We used their Croma line for the primer, sealer, base and clear.

  • PArealtor 1 month, 1 weekago

    any pics of the rear wheel wells? These always used to rust in this spot. At least all 3 of mine did over the years.

    Thank you seller for the quick response.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @RonMan2 the car was resprayed because I didn’t want to risk having mismatched paint once I replaced the sunroof. It was etched, primed, and painted. Not sure what brand of paint was used, but I can call tomorrow and get that info. Also, I just replied to your message regarding shipping.

    Hello Seller,
    Look forward to those undercarriage photos. Can you provide any additional details on the re-spray? (Bare metal or over the top of the original finish? What type of paint was used? Why was the car painted prior to listing for sale?). Thank You.

  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @n_l will do my best to get it to a shop that has a lift so I can do that. Should be able to do it Monday or Tuesday.

  • n_l (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Is it possible to post some undercarriage pictures - particularly jacking points, floors, suspension mounting points?


  • ECCRalph (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @VertexAuto I agree! Thanks!

  • VertexAuto (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    This just might just be the coolest car on Pcar thus far! ;)
