ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

While the Acura Integra Type R has achieved legendary status here in the US and used examples tend to sell for amounts that reflect this, not every Integra Type R has hit stratospheric value today. And this one is proof of that.

A 1998 model, it's a bit of a Frankenstein, but rest assured that it's a US-market model and that all of the essentials are there. According to the listing, it was stolen at one point, and when it was found its front end, trunk and interior had all been removed. Googling the VIN tells us the theft likely took place in Orlando back in 2005. A Japenese-market (or JDM) front-end was sourced for the replacement, as were red Recaro seats and a JDM MOMO steering wheel. The Recaros look great and are highly bolstered, while the engine looks to have an aftermarket air intake installed. Speaking of the engine, the seller states that both it and the transmission are original.

The Integra Type R was first sold in the US from 1997 to 1998, and available colors during those years were white and black. It skipped the 1999 model year before returning for 2000 and 2001, when it was offered in either yellow or black. Under the hood was a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine making just 195 horsepower.

Altogether, just 3,823 Integra Type Rs were sold in the US over those four model years, so you can see why someone would go to the trouble of painstakingly reviving a damaged -- or in this case disassembled -- example like the one offered here. Located in Sacramento, CA with roughly 140,000 miles on it (the listing states that the odometer appears to have been replaced), this unique Acura Integra Type R can be yours for just $12,999 -- a steal given that lower-mileage all-original examples sell for as much as $50,000 these days. Find an Acura Integra for sale
