1984 Honda Civic mid-engined at auctionAugust 30, 2020
A unique copy of the Japanese hatchback Honda Civic of the 1984 model is sold abroad. The car has received many upgrades, the main of which is the power plant – it is now located between the front and rear axles of the car.
The third generation Honda Civic, produced in the mid 80s, can be called a very interesting car. Consider its square shape and glass back. And specifically, this copy of the car, which will be discussed in this article, has additional body elements. This car is being sold at an overseas auction.
But there is one problem – the hatchback has no engine under the hood.
Don’t worry, it has an engine, but it sits between the front and rear axles. Yes, this is a mid-engined Civic hatchback from the 1980s and is up for auction at Bring a Trailer.
It is reported that the process of moving the engine and converting the car to rear-wheel drive was completed between 1987 and 1992. Since then, the car has had many owners until the latter decided to sell it. I must say that the car is in good shape even after so many years.
To accommodate the 3.2-liter Acura J32A2 V6 engine in the rear, a custom rear subframe has been added, mounted in an insulated, carpeted compartment. This engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, and the fuel tank is relocated to the bonnet along with the spare wheel, toolbox and battery.
The starting stake for this unusual in every sense of the third generation Honda Civic hatchback is $ 35,520
