Nice Ones Always Barfbox: 1985 Honda Accord
The 2nd generation Honda Accord was sold from 1982 through 1985 in the USA and these things were everywhere. Honda was selling so many of these things that they decided to build them in the USA. Starting in 1983, most Accords sold
west east of the Rockies were assembled in a plant in Marysville, Ohio. It appears this one was originally sold in CT, so it is probably one of those Marysville Accords, but it does look in great shape for the age. Find this 1985 Honda Accord offered for $6,450 in Voluntown, CT via craigslist. Tip from Carter.
From the seller:
1985 honda accord
cylinders: 4 cylinders
title status: clean
This 1985 Honda Accord is a “cream puff”. The car is 100% original and untouched. Elderly owned and used at a summer home the car has never seen a winter. It has been garaged its entire life and meticulously maintained. Every oil change and service has been documented and only parts from the Honda dealer were used. Selling only because the original owner can no longer drive, it just needs to be driven.

What a revelation these were after a string of flabby, clunky, stinky GM mailaise-mobiles. Concise, tidy, functional, crisp. What’s like this today? It’s all beep-boop electronic overkill, cost-engineering for minimum requirements, and all the visual sharpness of a half-used bar of soap.
DT post sez Marysville cars were sold WEST of Rockies? if correct, that seems perverse and this one would be really unusual to find as a very locally driven one on the East coast. I have a lower mileage 87 escort wagon. Same color combination. other than that, very little comparison to the engineering/design of these Accords.
That is what we in the business call an unforced error. I meant EAST of the Rockies. Lemme fix that.
What are you? A Geographer?
Too bad that one’s an automatic, but that usually seems to be the case for well preserved 30 year old Japanese cars.
