1995 Honda Integra Type R
Available for: $27,995
In 1995 Honda introduced to the world the Integra Type R. After a quarter-century it is among the most sought-after vehicles around and is still considered by many as the benchmark for FWD sports cars. Offered with only 103K verified and documented miles, this Championship White (NH-0) coupe is eye-catching and is set off by a set of OEM rainguards and a Mugen-style FRP wing. Aside from some light dings, chips, and scuffs associated with normal use the body and paint are in good nick overall. Sporting a set of Tein coilovers and rocking a few power adders, this lightly modified four-seater is turn-key ready to rock, and is fresh off a recent service. For occasional track use, daily driving, or something in between, this timeless Honda is perfect. Collectible, fun to drive, and easy to own this DC2 is a certified Japanese Classic and won't last long!
The cockpit features decent ergonomics and a slate of upgrades and standard power equipment. Plenty of leg and headroom is available for both driver and passengers, although the rear seats are admittedly tight. Drawing your eyes in are the bright red Recaro seats that are in overall good condition, but do have some slight wear from their previous owner. The dashboard is in good condition lacking any cracks, holes, or bubbling, and there is a custom shroud that was installed for a more seamless look for the Omori oil temperature, water temperature, and oil pressure suite of gauges. Unfortunately, the oil pressure gauge is not operating. A sporty Momo steering wheel replaces the stock one and feels great in the palms of the driver's hands. Power windows, power locks, and power mirrors all came standard with the Type R so daily use is enjoyable, and they all work! For the hot summer days, cold a/c is ready to blast ice cold air as the a/c condenser has been replaced with a new one. Hot heat is also available for those cold nights. The door cards are appealing as they have little to no scuffs or tears, but do show a small amount of wrinkling. The headliner, which is in good condition as well, is lacking in stains, tears, or any hanging. Storage space is abundant for a coupe of this size, perfect for grabbing groceries. The biggest interior flaw is the lack of a working radio but that should be an easy enough fix. Still at 25 years old it's remarkable how well this car has aged.
Under the hood sits one of the spiciest Honda powerplants ever offered. The rev-happy 197hp B18C is one hell of an engine, packing a punch with its signature VTEC system and a few supporting modifications for good measure. The freshly powder-coated valve cover adds to the aesthetic under the bonnet. Our 1.8L is fresh off an oil and filter service and starts up promptly thanks to a new 12v battery we installed here in our shop. It sounds incredible too, as an FGK catback delivers a deeper exhaust note and a few extra HP, and a Feel's intake aids breathing. The engine idles with confidence and benefits from a new valve cover gasket and set of serpentine belts installed by one of our trained techs. Fresh spark plugs and new wires have been taken care of as well! The gearbox linkage is fantastic and the shifter feel is top-tier. The five-speed manual is fun to have around town and scoots up to highway speeds with aplomb. Powering the front wheels the Integra pulls itself through the turns with its factory helical differential. A Feel's strut tower brace stiffens things up a bit and adds some visual appeal. Lowered on a set of Tein coilovers the Honda handles impressively, and looks sharp with its reduced fender gap. We also rehabbed the driveline with a set of new axles and now she drives like a dream. The brakes are grabby, and the refinished factory alloy wheels are all wrapped in new rubber at all four corners. The new tires are quiet and grippy and will last for tens of thousands of miles to come.
