Debuting in 1975, the CVCC (Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) engine changed everything about the car world in America. The extra-engineered engine delivered amazing fuel mileage and ran so clean it was one of the only cars in America that did not require a catalytic converter. This blue plate California car has survived well - over 37 years on the road and at <132K miles has had a rather lazy 3500 miles a year in the greater LA sun.
These pioneering Hondas were loved, used and abused – few remain on the road today. While most Civics were 4 speeders, the unique 2 speed semi-automatic Hondamatic transmission model were fewer then and rarer now.
Being born with an aluminum body and growing up in the warm southern climate provided for a rust free middle age for this baby – no broken bones and no plastic surgery needed here. There are a few small dings in the shell, but aluminum can easily be undinged inexpensively. The hood has been repainted (top is solid but peeling under) – all other paint is factory original. One year in Vancouver grew a few surface rust spots around the hatch and bottom of the driver’s door, but otherwise there are not many CVCCs this clean and original.
The passenger door window is missing the inner felt runner; the original rear view mirror has been replaced with a universal one, and the original ashtray cover is broken. Ailing sections of the seats were recovered, keeping original where possible – we should have also covered the top corner of the passenger seat that now needs a patch.
A lot of time and energy has gone into restoring the car to make as good on the inside as the outside. New features include:
Rebuilt engine (9,000 miles since 2011)
Head Gasket (2015)
Seat upholstery (2013)
Rubber seals on doors and hatch (2013)
Tires (2014)
Weber carburetor (2014)
JVC CD player and 2x Sony speakers
After making a 2000 mile road trip last year to attend university, the car is currently located in Vancouver B.C. This student car is driven daily on the cheap and still garners a lot of positive attention. It was featured in a movie recently – it does stand out from the ordinary.
