For sale my trusty old Civic 1.8VTI VTEC MB6 - 1k no offers for sale for 1 week only as I have a firm offer of £550 & I can keep my full stainless exhaust & the stereo

I am located in Mynytho Pwllheli North Wales on the Lleyn peninsular 


Honda Civic Aerodeck 1.8VTI VTEC


MB6 Engin with limited slip diff 169BHP

It's in Dakota Bronze & I think the only 1.8 Areodeck in that colour in the UK

Engine & box good, pulls like a train through all gears & tops out at 140

Starts 1st time every time & has never let me down once in the 7 years I have owned it

Both rear arches & both sills re-built 6 months ago to a high standard

Half leather interior.

Cam belt done at 155000 – currently at 172000

New alternator belt just fitted & alternator replaced

Oil & filter changed every 4k & has always been run with liquid moly oil

Both front light lenses just buffed out 6 months ago

Spare has full tread

Secondary earth strap fitted

All 4 tyres have decent tread

New rear discs & pads fitted last year

Everything works as it should including all electrics & windows

No peeling on any of the door cards

Good quality rear shocks

Ignition barrel replaced & has 2 new coded keys cut

Paperwork all in order & V5 present

MOT'd till August

Sony stereo fitted

Full stainless exhaust system custom built & new cat fitted end of 2018

New HT leads fitted last year

Heavy duty tow-bar fitted with single socket electrics

Front driver side wing has been recently resprayed professionally

Has been de-badged

Has almost a full tank of petrol


Has the usual leak to spare wheel well

Needs welding done to rear trailing arm points on both sides & a spot doing at the front just behind the wheels the front is minor & an easy fix, the rear will need the trailing arms stripping off for access to do the work.

Needs new front discs & pads

Air con not working & radiator removed.


Has been used as a family car so is not mint inside, but acceptable

Window bottom door trims are cracked & peeling like all of them

The paint lacquer is delaminating & is bad on the bonnet

Should be being collected on Saturday or Monday at the latest from what I know, I am getting £600 + I get to keep my custom exhaust & stereo, will try to wangle my tow bar too if I'm lucky, as I really want to have anoher in future, I have the little 1.5 aerodeck to tide me over but it's not like having the grunt under the bonnet is it.

I am pretty mortified she has to go, but I spent what I had available just last summer getting the sills & rear arch boxes totally rebuit, wish I had clocked the corrosion to the rear trailing are point at the time, I just don't have the funds needed to put her back the way she needs to be sadly as the welding is a fair size job & my welder friend is a few hundered miles from me & not really set up for a job like this as the trailing arms need to come off to get at the connection points, then everything has to be exact when locating the connecting points (on the inside of the frame) & the guys where I am at & are set up for this kind of thing would be charging more than she's actually worth, as I am at the a*s end of nowhere & the welders here charge the earth :( 

I did put it up on the local FB groups to me (North Wales) but not for breaking, it's a crying shame as although she's not perfect, everything works & she still looks ok to me & pulls like a train

This guy buying it?

It is a shame. Lovely colour looks great just getting old arnt they. If it wasnt rust it'd be something else.


Yeah it's Saj that buying it, bloody cheeky putting it up for sale before it's in hand though really, I appreciate you posted that up kink, I will go take a look on there now.

EDIT: - yeah it's a very rare colour, not seen another 1.8 areodeck in this colour in the UK, I love her dearly, bloody breaking my heart letting her go, but the work needed is a little extensive for me to try myself & too costly to get done in the part of the country I'm in.

Had a lot of fun with her so should not grumble, but after getting all the welding done last year I figured we'd share a few more years of fun together, I don't want other cars, many lust after this & that fancy modern one's but I'd be happy with an arerodeck till I die TBH
