WHY IT’S RAD!
The Honda Civic Del Sol was largely based on the underpinnings of the contemporary Honda Civic with it’s fully independent double wishbone suspension and fizzy VTEC (Honda speak for variable valve timing) power plants. Honda had the MX-5 squarely in their crosshairs when they launched the Del Sol—an open top, sporty 2 seater, with new-for-the-90’s bubbly styling.
However, the Del Sol offers a unique driving experience compared to it’s contemporary rival. The removable targa top stows away neatly in the trunk and combined with the lowering rear window, you get the liberating experience of a roadster, with an integrated flying buttress “roll bar” of sorts. Combine this with some very cool early 90’s metallic colors and you have something pretty darn RAD.
The example offered here is a largely original, 1994 “Si” model, in the two year only Captiva Blue Pearl. The selling dealer states it is a 1 owner car with mostly original paint and all original panels to their knowledge. The Si model is powered by a 125hp SOHC 1.6L 4 cylinder with VTEC. This little mill redlines at 7,200 rpm and spins the front wheels via a 5 speed manual transmission.
Originally purchased new at Bobby Rahal Honda in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, the vehicle remained in the state and that makes it’s condition fairly remarkable considering the salty roads in the region. The seller states there is no visible rust on the vehicle. The clean Carfax shows regular service and verifies its one owner status.
Recent Service History includes:
- Timing Belt
- Rear brake pads and rotors replaced
- Brake fluid flush
- Engine oil change
- Front bumper repainted (no incidents reported in car history reports)
With it’s minimal cosmetic flaws and excellent history, this is a perfect opportunity to purchase a very nice driver condition Honda Del Sol Si that can be enjoyed with peace of mind.
