    The fun and more desirable Hondamatic gearbox

    PROBABLY THE MOST ORIGINAL AND BEST EXAMPLE LEFT IN THE COUNTRY !!!!!!!!!!!!
    A REAL PIECE OF HONDA HERITAGE !!!!
    THIS CAR HAS NEVER BEEN WELDED OR RESTORED!
    THIS STUNNING CONDITION CAR THAT SHOULD EITHER GO IN A MUSEUM OR BE TAKEN TO CAR SHOWS WHERE I’M SURE IT WOULD WIN ITS CLASS !! I`M NOT SURE WHAT THE DEFINITION OF CONCOURS IS, HOWEVER THIS CAR MUST BE CLOSE.
    I have been an avid enthusiast of early Honda Civic`s for the last 20 years and have probably had over 50 of them!! I would spend month in and month out trawling the UK for them and at one point owned 7 at one time!
    Over the last couple of years my lifestyle has changed and as I now more than 15 classic cars and I have made the gut wrenching decision to part company with some of them.
    Last year I sold 2 of my other Civics
    1 was a 1977 S Hondamatic in Highland Blue with 24000 miles for £6600
    1 was a 1977 S Hondamatic in Cheyne Gold with 14,000 miles for £6800
    Both of these cars were in superb condition BUT not in the same class or Condition as this car!!!
    Recently, I've seen a couple of tarted up examples claiming to be fully restored with 40,000 + miles selling for circa £4,000!! One of these so called restored cars actually had the chrome bumpers painted silver!!!!!!!!!
    This is without doubt the best Civic I have ever owned, and I really saddened that I have to part with it!!
    Let me give you a little bit of history about OLW 996P !!!
    The car was purchased new on the 1st April 1976 by a very wealthy Japanese Lady who lived in London and kept the car parked in an underground heated garage owned by Iniveral Parking Ltd .She also owned a Jensen Intercepter which was kept alongside the Little Honda. Much of her time was spent outside of the UK returning only occasionally. Iniveral Parking ltd had keys to both cars and were instructed to make sure they were regularly started .However for no know reason she never returned and as a result the Honda spent nearly 26 years in the car park accumulating a very hefty parking/storage bill together with the Jensen. In 2002 due to the storage charges not being paid Iniveral Parking through the courts claimed legal title to the Honda and the Jensen. They in turn became the 2nd recorded keeper when the car had covered a little over 8,500 miles (I have V5 copies of this).
    The Honda and the Jensen were then re sold as a pair to a Mr Robert Townsend although he only really wanted the Jensen and the Cherished number plate off the Honda Civic (100 FYK). He became the 3rd recorded keeper.
    I purchased the car from Robert Townsend on the 30th November 2003 so have owned it for 10 years (I have a letter from him outlining how he purchased the car from the parking company and confirming the mileage of 8,579 miles)
    During my ownership the car was DETAILED regularly maintained and wanted for nothing !
