1993 Honda Integra Si-VTEC
The Honda Integra is a hallmark of the brand and an icon of the '90s. As a manufacturer, this chassis was a fantastic showcase of the commitment to quality, sportiness, and aesthetics. This 1993 Si-VTEC powered sedan is offered with a mere 54k verified/documented miles and has been legally imported and recently serviced here stateside. Finished in (B-59P) Buckingham Blue Pearl, the body is in good shape aside from some minor dings and chips associated with normal use. With room for five and an impressive interior, this JDM Honda would be a great commuter car or weekend toy or unmolested platform to modify. The next chapter in this vehicle's life will be up to the next owner, but no matter what its use this Integra is a certified turn-key Japanese Classic.
The cabin condition is far above average for a vehicle of this age, and it's obvious this one was cared for in a prior life. The driver benefits from an adjustable steering column, and power-folding mirrors, electric locks, and power windows. All of these work properly and the Integra also comes with automatic climate control and an upgraded Sony headunit. The a/c doesn't blow as cold as Siberia, but it is cool and does help in these summer months a bit. The dash is in good shape overall and the only flaw to note is a light impression from an old dash mounted nav unit. The seats are upholstered in a gray and blue textured cloth. They are in above average shape and match the door cards which are near mint. They are soft to the touch, supportive, and lack any major rips stains, or tears. The headliner is clean and the carpets have held up well over the past three decades. The touch surfaces and plastics are also in much better shape than you'd expect and the original owner's manuals and maintenance books (with some records) are still in the glove box.
Mechanically this Integra is what you look for in a Honda. The infamous 1.8L B18C powers this ride and is fresh off an oil and filter service. Thanks to a new 12v battery it starts up promptly and sets into confident idle. The four-banger powers the front wheels and goes through a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. The gearbox shifts properly and this model returns some decent fuel economy. It's no performance slouch either and this lightweight chassis accelerates well. The suspension is tidy and the brakes feel confident. The power steering is light yet does provide plenty of feedback. The OEM alloys are also wrapped in new all-season rubber at all four corners. These new tires will provide plenty of year-round grip for tens of thousands of miles to come and quiet down the ride nicely.
