Autotrader Find: Low-Mile 1986 Honda Prelude Si

You’re looking at a 1986 Honda Prelude Si with 61,100 original miles, currently listed for sale on Autotrader. There aren’t too many of these 1980s Prelude models left, period, let alone in this condition, as this one is truly a time capsule.

Offered for sale by Maguire and Sons Auto Brokers in Virginia Beach, Virginia, this Prelude was the top-of-the-line model in 1986, the sporty Si. Unfortunately, it’s dulled by its automatic transmission, but the simple truth is that beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to the few remaining 1980s Honda Preludes. Although this Prelude isn’t in as perfect shape as some of the low-mile oddities I feature here on Autotrader Find, it’s still unusually nice for a car that’s gained some respect in recent years for its small size and no-frills driving experience.

Maguire and Sons is asking $8,900 for the Si, and the Carfax report seems to illustrate that it’s primarily a one-owner vehicle in the Virginia Beach area: The Si was sold new on September 4, 1986, and apparently remained with the original owner until late 2017. It’s black with a gray cloth interior, and it even features the correct wheels — along with the hilarious chrome wheel arches that were dealer-installed on many cars in the 1980s.

If you’ve been interested in checking out an early Prelude Si, now might be your chance to pick one up — automatic or not, it may be the nicest one you’ll find. Find a Honda Prelude for sale
