Sunny - 1993 Rare Civic Si Find

I saw this car for the first time when I went to look at a 91 wagon owned by a guy who ran into a friend of mine in a parking lot admiring his WRX wagon. My friend passed me his number and I went to take a look.

A 2 owner, never driven in winter, 62k EG Si isn't something you stumble across often across the US in this day and age, much less one you find in Wisconsin. Initially I talked with Johnathan about helping to sell the wagon and the Si but eventually a friend of mine said he was interested in buying the wagon. Jonathan and I talked about putting the wagon up for 4k which seemed a good price given the market today. The wagon is a 1991 RT4WD with 97k miles, never driven in winter. What!? This guy basically has a best-of early 90's museum at his house.

Jonathan thought 3k was a little low for the wagon, but I asked if he would sell the wagon and the si for 3k each if we picked them both up. He agreed and after a few missed connections I ended up going to pick up the Si first. After seeing the Si move out of his driveway Jonathan decided not to sell the wagon. I guess seeing one piece of 90s nostalgia leave was too much for one man to handle. I know it would be for me too.
I don't know how long the car sat, but it was at least a year or two. Lots of sun fade, and clear coat damage to the roof, and also noticeable on tops of the body panels. All the molding is cracked and the tires look pretty dry rotted as well.

I've got a load of parts on the way:

OEM Honda parts
Koni Yellows
Eibach Pro-Kit
Eibach Sway kit
Falken Azeniz
Brembo blanks
Hawk HPS 5.0 pads

  • Just WOW! What a great find! Congrats!
  • That's a great find SH! Look forward to seeing what you do with it.
  • The hubcaps are OEM and mint. He pulled them off the car and put them in his basement right when he bought it back in 95. I asked if he had the OEM steelies and he said yeah they are in the basement so we went down to get them. Then he was like "Oh I have these too" and just pulled them out from a box just sitting in the corner.

    I'm going for an OEM+ type of feel to the car, maybe OBD1 B16 at some point in the future but I'm hesitant to even do that. I do know that now I have two great 90's civics I'm going to go bonkers on the wagon. :P

    How rare is this model exactly? Is it known how many cars were produced?
  • superhatchsuperhatch Moderator
    I wouldn't say they are rare, but finding one in stock condition with low miles is very rare.

    Some photos from this summer:

    Vti(?) oem exhaust BNIB from a dealership somewhere in europe:

    B16 left, USDM D16Z6 right

    It was cheaper and easier to buy a skunk 2 rear LCA than dig around for an EX LCA in the junk yard.

    Added EX Sedan components to mount the sway bar. Oddly the Si never came with a rear sway bar.
