Well the only significant question I would have is if it is really rust free. In Maine, I would be extra cautious about the body. Functionally, it must be an HF, for the mileage and for the price, if it is rust free, it's a pretty good deal. If it's not, meaning it's a bondo and newspaper job, then I don't know.
I'd check out the frame underneath. If it's a rust problem, you should be able to see it their. If it's not a rust problem, I'd get it and you'll be set.
Damn, for a northeast CRX, that is a great deal. Those HF ones are hard to find in any decent conditioin since most people never treated them like they were worth a damn. The paint does hint to that it might have been abused, but if the Bondo doesn't seem like it is everywhere, or too thick, I would go with it (depending on it running great). A little rust underneath the paint is expected, but finding an HF for that price, complete, and running, with little rust, in the area of the NE, is very very very difficult.
On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...
So what happened? Did you get it? The ad has been removed by the author so that most likely means it's sold but to who?
I actually didn't end up getting it. I went to look at it and it was pretty rough. If you read the ad it said "NO RUST" but both rear fenders were bubbled up pretty good. and overall it wasn't really what I was expecting from the ad.
I then came home and the search went on. Right then I actually found an ad for a 1991 CRX 5 speed 110k from Arizona of all places. I immediately called the guy and set up a meeting.......
I intend to start a thread for the new one that I picked up. Keep your eyes open.
I guess I'm a little confused, did you already purchase a CRX HF and you're going to post a thread for that one? Did you go from Maine to Arizona to get it? Damn, ur serious about getting yourself an HF!
I went to look at the HF posted at the beginning of this thread but I was disappointed with it. I then came home and searched again and found one for sale locally that just came from Arizona and bout that one instead.
The one from Arizona is a 91 DX 5 speed with DPFI. Paint is rough but no rust anywhere on the body.
