    Default Crx

    I have found an old CRX that has not been used in perhaps 8 years. Coil overs and well prepared at the time.

    Does not run, claims it needs a fuel pump and should run.

    The body has some surface rust where chips were. Solid car. Paint is not really nice, would need to be repainted.

    What would you value something like this.

    Really nice, front running ones can be had for less than 10,000$. Belts and all rubber will need to be replaced. Cage may need to be updated (passenger side door bars).
    Mechanical? Cosmetics?

    I personally wouldn't pay more than 2500$.

    That's assuming it's an ITA car, B or C, much less!

    Where should I send the fuel pump? You need OEM or electric?

    Can you even turn the motor over by hand?

    Not having run in that long, there going to be quite a bit of "going over" that it needs prior to competition. Then add in the cage updates (passenger door bar), additional ballast, new belts, new tires, possibly updated fire system, etc and there ends up being a not insubstantial amount of work needed. I've seen very well prepped and currently competition ready ITA CRX's go for less than $4-5k recently. What you're describing is worth at most the $2,500 mentioned above and potentially quite a bit less depending on what parts are on the car, spares package, and overall car condition.

    I have not been on in awhile. It is an 80s CRX. I have not had a chance to go through any of it. The car was a friends car that is sitting for some time.

    First Gen CRX....'84-'87
    Second Gen CRX....'88-'91

    First Gens run in B or C, depending on if they're fuel injected or Carb.
    Seconds can run in A, B, or C depending on type of fuel injection and
    4 or 5 speed trans.

    Incredibly good ready to race A....$8000-10,000
    B.....$3000-4000
    C.....$2000-3000
    Or not!

    And there's an "incredibly good ready to race A" CRX on the market right now with all the parts to run NASA PTD (and a truck-load of spares) for something like $9,500... and there's the ex-Ruck ITS Prelude for ~$10k that hasn't sold despite being on the market for months... and my prior "body in white" Civic Sedan ITA car for ~$8,500.

    As awesome as these cars are and as much as they cost to build, the market is tough right now for anything more than $3-4k.

    I cleaned up the car and got it running. It has a fuel cell. Bolt cage. No full bars on the passenger side. Two horizonal bars on the driver side. It is no 1.75 tubing, must be 1.5.

    The rear has coil over adjustable shocks. The front has a koni strut, but a torsion bar or something front end. Are they all like this? No springs?

    If it has a carb, it's a C, and should be damn near free. If fuel injected, B, with a bolt in cage, maybe $1500-2000.

    It has in injected motor. This is going to be a first car for my son to get a license. It was actually free, if I get it running I get to use it is the deal.

    I guess I need to get it to a tech inspector to see what they like and don't like. I am not sure how much money to put into this car just to get it reliable and current.

    They can be competitive....a Civic, same generation (mechanically the same, longer wheelbase), just won the 2012 NARRC ITB Championship. Not mine however!

    yeah, well built and well driven civic/CRX of that era is a good ITB car. decent motor and very light. some spares can be troublesome (plastic fenders, hubs) and they are definitely on the declining side of the curve for that reason, but they are still strong B cars if you can overcome those small issues.

    the example you site, based entirely on the few things you have said, tell me it's closer to a $1k car. should be great for a school car though.
