1984 Honda Prelude GXL (MkII)

Two owners from new and only 39,355 miles on this 2nd Gen 1.8 litre twin-carb manual Prelude; timing belt service August 2022 - find another?!

Supplied new by Morning Star Motors Ltd of Bristol in March 1984, this 2nd Generation Honda Prelude is finished in Stratos blue and retains its original 13” alloy wheels.

Under the bonnet we find the 1.8 litre twin carb DOHC 12-valve ET2 four-cylinder petrol engine (which is cleverly tilted back slightly and set low to achieve the car’s low bonnet line) which drives the front wheels via five-speed manual transmission. 

Recorded as a GXL spec model on the V5C, we find ALB – antilock brakes, electric glass sunroof, rear boot spoiler, two-tone Blue and light grey cloth seats, electric windows, electric aerial, heated rear screen, digital clock, pop-up lights and original radio cassette player.

The car comes to us showing just 39,355 miles which is incredible really, covered by just two owners, the current since March 2016 with the original lady owner enjoying the car from new until 2016.

The history file includes the V5C confirming just one former keeper, the owner’s manual and service book revealing three stamps including PDI, the last in August 2022 including a cambelt service. Prior to that, the last stamp was in 1985 at 5,847 miles.

In addition, we also find the original bill of sale to Mrs Boulton of Bristol for £9,075 with her part exchanging a Honda Accord towards the purchase of this Prelude and the current MOT, valid until August 2023.

Ready to be enjoyed this is a rare car in what looks to be original condition with low miles and just two owners – find another?
