This 1982 Honda Prelude
XXR is a right-hand-drive Japanese-market example that was reportedly imported
as part of a private Los Angeles-based collection. Features include a rear
window wiper, cruise control, and an electric sunroof. Power comes from a 1.8 Liter inline-four paired with a three-speed automatic transmission. This Prelude is offered in
California with Japanese records/manuals and a clean Oregon title in my name.

The first-generation
Prelude weighed just 2006 pounds. Japanese-market styling cues include
fender-mounted mirrors and yellow Cibie foglights. Body panels are finished in
two-tone silver/blue with a red stripe 13×5″ cast wheels with unique stamping are mounted with Falken Pro
Touring all-season tires manufactured in 2018. Braking is provided by front
discs and rear drums.

Seats are upholstered in
patterned cloth and are in excellent condition (1 very small rip in vinyl on top of back seat - see pic), carpets are excellent and covered by Japanese floor mats. The passenger-rear backrest cushion can be folded down for
increased cargo capability, a Japanese-band Pioneer cassette deck is fitted and does receive FM broadcasts in the lower ranges.
The factory air conditioning system remains but does not blow cold according to
the seller. The XXR also has a unique gauge layout with the Tachometer set in an inner ring inside the  speedometer The 5-digit odometer shows approximately 2,000 kilometers and is
believed to have rolled over once (actual mileage conversion is 63,380 miles).  The
front-hinged hood opens to reveal a naturally-aspirated 1,751 cc EK CVCC 12-valve inline-four, which
developed 94 horsepower and 103 lb-ft of torque when new. Plenty of power considering the 2006 pound curb weight. Power is sent through
a three-speed automatic transmission. I have been using this car as one of my daily drivers and it is a real blast to drive. I get the THUMBS UP all the time and people often stop and talk about how cool the car is. An engine oil/filter change was completed April 2019 . Note: This is a Japanese Domestic Model Legally imported under the 25 year ruling. Car is sold on clean / clear Oregon Title in MY NAME and is currently registered for street use.(copy available upon request).
Overall condition of car is very good, tires are like new, runs and drives very well as expected for a 1982 Vehicle. Engine runs great, transmission operates correctly, variable Power Steering, suspension and brakes are in good operating condition.

JAY TRAUGOTT  CAR CULTURE  / 9 COMMENTSOriginally sold in Japan only. Now it can be
yours.The Honda Prelude was built from 1978
until its discontinuation in 2001. Although it was mechanically
similar to the early Accord, the Prelude was smaller, lighter, and
sportier. It also borrowed the original Accord's four-wheel
independent struts, brakes, and engine. However, it featured its own unique
chassis. A few of its competitors include the Toyota Celica and Nissan Silvia.
The Prelude was also the first Honda to feature a power moonroof.In Japan, that moonroof was a sliding metal unit
while in the US it was glass, enabling greater headroom. Sunroofs became a
signature Prelude trait from that point onward. Under the hood was a 1.6-liter
inline-four rated at just 79 hp and 93 lb-ft of torque or an optional 1.8-liter
inline-four. However, the latter engine produced 72 hp and 94 lb-ft in the US
market. Initially,
just two transmissions were offered: a five-speed manual or a two-speed
semi-automatic, but a three-speed slushbox arrived not long after the Prelude's
initial launch. Total weight: a darn reasonable 1,980 pounds, which is less
than a first-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata. It's easy to see the Prelude's
appeal. Honda wanted a more premium coupe with a sportier edge to compete
against those aforementioned Japanese competitors as well as a few from the US.

















Remember,
this was right around the time when Honda opened its Marysville, Ohio
production facility which to this day still builds Accords. The Prelude
received rave reviews from the automotive press at the time of its launch and
it sold well enough in the US to earn a redesign that came in 1982.A total of
five generations appeared before the Prelude's departure from the Honda lineup
23 years after its arrival. But there was one Prelude trim in particular that
has become the so-called ultimate MK1 Prelude. And, of course, it was sold in
Japan only. The Prelude XXR came standard with a lot of features not available
in other markets, such as the Kanji-labeled "Electronic Navigator"
that's mounted behind the shifter and above the factory graphic equalizer.There's
also a digital clock, which may seem pretty basic today, but the US-market MK1
Prelude had a mechanical flip quartz-powered clock. The standard two-tone
exterior paint job was also unavailable on US market cars. Even the four-spoke
wheels are quite unique due to their factory stampings stating wheel size and
the model name. The
interior also features a cloth upholstery with an interesting design as well as
a ski pass-through in the rear. Rear disc brakes were also standard fare. But
perhaps the most important XXR feature was its more powerful 1.8-liter engine,
rated at 94 horsepower / 103 ft-lb torque.







Considering this Prelude's rarity and solid shape, chances
are you'll have a hard time finding another one like it already in the US. Please note: Engine specs including CCs & horsepower / torque ratings are taken from Automobile Catalog (See info below) https://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_perf1.php
