Honda Accord Type R

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

An astonishing UK Honda Accord Type R with 11,897 miles and full Honda history.

EQUIPMENT
Front spoiler, rear skirt, side fairings, mesh grille, auto levelling High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with washers, helical limited slip differential, uprated springs and dampers, Momo leather steering wheel, digital clock, headlight ‘on’ reminder chime, remote fuel filler release, illuminated ignition switch, dashboard illumination control, dual SRS airbags, power front windows and door mirrors, titanium gear shift knob. Factory Options; Boot spoiler, air conditioning, rear parking sensors, Level 2 ICE Programme with Pioneer DEH-P6000R. Dealer accessories; Tailored Type R embossed floor mats.

EXTERIOR
The high-gloss paint finish looks alluring finished in Vesuvio Red, (Code R502) and thanks to strict garage storage and an ultra-low 11,897 miles, is stunning. There are no dings or scuffs and the vehicle has never had a machine polish still boasting the preferred factory full protection. The sculpted front spoiler has a few diminutive stone chips, barley visible to the naked eye. The body coloured door mirrors still have factory check stickers to the underside and dealer branded number plates, boot lid and rear window sticker are affixed. The HID light clusters are crystal clear and all glass is original Honda branded with tiny delamination to one corner of the front screen. A single-minded sports machine and no doubt, the very best example to be offered.

INTERIOR
A driver focused interior has minimal luxuries for superior power to weight ratio witnessed firstly by the lightweight Black Alcantara Recaro seats in pristine condition with absolutely no wear or fade. Due to garage storage and no UV light the seat trim does not have the normal green tinge. Less sound insulation and even the removal of the inside trim for the bootlid and felt from the glovebox found on other Accords was absent in the Type R. The rear seats are unused and a strengthened rear bulkhead means the usual 60/40 split is absent. The Metallic effect dashboard and door trim unique to the Type R is immaculate as is the titanium gear shift knob with no markings. All equipment functions including the optional air conditioning. The carpets have been protected by tailored Type R embossed floor mats supplied by Honda from new which in turn have been protected by rubber floor mats carefully trimmed to fit perfectly. Incredible in all areas.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 2.2 litre DOHC VTEC engine includes detailed engineering refinements to increase airflow at high engine speeds, reduce friction and speed up exhaust gas flow, resulting in an exhilarating 209bhp. When the engine speed reaches a certain point, the VETEC cuts in, the cam profile changes and the results are breathtaking. A top speed of 142mph and 0-62mph in 7.5 secs is quoted. All this in the safe knowledge the car has been maintained exclusively and regularly by the supplying Honda main dealer. The Type-R’s close-ratio gearbox, performance clutch and helical limited slip differential permit rapid acceleration and improve traction out of corners. This car has trigger-like responsiveness.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 17” alloy wheels have never been refurbished and have no scuffs just the minutest of markings from travelling 11,897 miles. The tyres are recommended Bridgestone Potenza 215/45 R17 replaced in 2016 with ample tread and an unused space saver is present. Huge 16” diameter ventilated front discs, 14” rear discs, high friction, anti-fade brake pads, ABS and Electronic Brake distribution gives you the assurance to explore the Type R’s electrifying performance.

HISTORY FILE
Remarkable. Supplied by Honda Marshall of Peterborough on the 1st September 1999 to Mr Charles Ellis the new car brochure reveals his hand written notes and ticks specifying the Accord Type R with manual air conditioning and a Category 1 Alarm along with some other options. His son, Gary Ellis, was instrumental in the purchase and treated his father to the number plate V22TEC when new and still included with the car. Gary was to become the only other and second owner in August 2019 after his father’s passing. The car has been serviced without fail by the supplying Honda dealer a total of 13 times during the 11,897 miles travelled. The last service was carried out in September 2019. All invoices, MOT certificates and documentation has been carefully filed leaving no doubt to the care bestowed on this iconic car. A full book pack and spare keys with Honda key fobs to both are included. The supplying dealer tax disc holder is included complete with expired discs. KGF Classic Cars were honoured to be contacted when Gary made the painful decision to sell the car his only stipulation being to find a good home for this prime example. We made that promise and a lucky new custodian will be absolutely delighted.

Honda Civic Type R EP3

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A UK Honda Civic Type R EP3 with 42,981 miles and last owner for 11 years.

EQUIPMENT
Dual SRS airbags, ISOFIX child restraint system, side impact beams, front and rear crumple zones, immobiliser, Honda Superlocks, remote central locking, body styling kit, sports grill, rear spoiler, electric windows, electric door mirrors, alloy gear shift knob, Type-R racing style front seats (Alcantara trimmed), leather covered steering wheel with red ‘R’ stitching, high security CD tuner stereo, micro antenna. Factory Options; Air conditioning, adjustable rear head restraints. Dealer accessories; Tailored Type R embossed floor mats.

EXTERIOR
This tremendous flagship Honda Civic Type R is finished in Cosmic Grey Pearl, (Colour Code NH674P). A deep gloss shine to the pin straight factory panels reflects the very low mileage of this pampered example. Minor markings commensurate with the usage extend to little more than light scratches and touched in frontal stone chips as well as a carefully touched in scratch to the offside rear quarter and another to the boot lid. The bumpers, spoilers and trim are fully intact and unscathed and light clusters are clear with none of the common plastic fatigue. This unmolested Type R looks superb and is a fantastic useable example of this modern classic white-hot hatchback.

INTERIOR
An unspoilt and super clean interior is sure to delight the next owner of this example. The brilliant body-hugging Type-R racing style front seats with Alcantara trim throughout, are in fantastic order with firm wear free bolsters and virtually none of the common bobbling to the Alcantara fabric. Huge wings to the front seats, red seat panel inserts and Type R embossment are an unsubtle reminder that this really is no ordinary Civic! The carpets have been protected from new by genuine Type R embossed floor mats and the matching door cards are in excellent order. There are some light marks to the aluminium door pulls and alloy gear shift knob. The aluminium effect fascia is unmarked and the leather steering wheel with bright red stitching is in superb order. The immaculate boot area houses an unused space saver spare wheel along with the full toolkit and warning triangle neatly stowed. The small plaque on the centre console informs you that the car is build number R-34050 and this example has thankfully avoided the modifier brigade.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Little introduction is needed for the engineering wonderment that is Honda’s legendary naturally aspirated engines and their phenomenal capabilities, and the chain driven K20A2 i-VTEC in this EP3 Civic remains in factory standard form. From just a 2.0 litre powerplant, Honda engineers have developed an incredible 197bhp with the VTEC system engaging at 5900rpm and increasing thrust up to an awesome 8050rpm! A top speed of 146mph along with 0-62mph in just 6.8 seconds is enough to embarrass many a performance car with much larger capacity engines. The engine bay is clean and exactly as Honda intended with all factory stickers and plates intact even to the underside of the bonnet. The slick 6-speed manual short-throw gearbox allows rapid slingshot gear changes.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unique 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels are in superb order having been refurbished and wear matching branded Avon 205/45 ZR17 tyres to all four corners showing ample tread. Correct large silver grey callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the impressive stopping power with advanced features such as ABS and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD).

HISTORY FILE
The design of Honda Type R models is primarily based on racing with emphasis placed on minimising weight and maximising performance potential. The red ‘R’ and red Honda badge is a nod towards the racetrack heritage and a tribute to Honda’s first winning F1 car. Manufactured in Swindon, England and build number R-34050, the car was first registered on 29th June 2005. Supplied as a UK car by Honda Main Dealer, Arnold Clark of Manchester, this example has covered just 42,981 miles from new in the hands of dedicated enthusiasts appreciating the car in its standard form. The previous keeper has owned the car for the last 11 years whereby strict garage storage and dry leisure usage has been key to the prime condition.

The original service book contains seven stamped entries with the most recent service carried out in June 2020 using genuine Honda parts. All handbooks, manuals and dealership point of sale literature is included in the leather document wallet and there are two Honda keys with remote fobs. A further history folder contains corresponding service invoices and MOT certificates dating back to the first in 2008 to further verify the genuine low mileage. Completing the history file is an original Honda Type R range brochure. Gaining almost immediate cult status when launched and a ‘must drive’ car for the avid petrolhead, this unspoilt example will not disappoint and is becoming harder to find.

Honda C70-C

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

An original retro UK Honda C70-C Round Light model with 3,600 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
Introduced in 1958, the Honda Cub/Super Cub has been in continuous manufacture ever since and production surpassed 100 million in 2017 making it the most produced motor vehicle in history. The idea for a new 50cc motorcycle was conceived in 1956 when Honda Motor’s Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa toured Germany and witnessed the popularity of mopeds. The requirement however for the motorcycle to succeed in the developing world was, primarily simplicity, and larger wheels than those of a moped in order to cope with badly surfaced roads, or indeed non-existent roads in rural regions. Another requirement of Takeo Fujisawa was that the bike could be ridden one handed whilst carrying a tray of soba noodles, siting that the vast numbers of soba noodle shops in Japan would no doubt want one as a delivery bike. The iconic and phenomenally successful Honda Cub series is widely credited for mobilising and in large part, revolutionising, the developing world.

EQUIPMENT
Pressed steel underbone frame, 12-volt electrics, capacitor discharge ignition (CDI), polyethylene leg guard/cowling, black and white long seat, rear luggage rack, 3-speed clutchless transmission, fully enclosed drivetrain, horn, primary coupled kick-starter, chrome indicator housing, two adjustable mirrors, Nippon Seiki HO-791 speedometer, odometer, turn signal switch, headlight switch, neutral indicator, rear footrests, helmet lock, side storage with toolkit.

EXTERIOR
This wonderful 1984 C70-C is the more desirable ‘round headlight’ model and this example is finished in factory original Monza Red. Having covered just 3,600 miles from new, this remarkable example has never been restored and still boasts first paint credentials, virtually unheard of. A natural aged patina is entirely forgivable and does not spoil the appearance. All metal is in remarkable shape has never been welded or repaired and the polyethylene leg guard/cowling is incredibly well-preserved with no cracks. The front mudguard displays a small thumbnail size repair. Factory decals below the seat and original stickers and warning labels will further delight originality seekers, as will the factory badges, supplying dealer cowling sticker and plastic sheath over the foot brake pedal. The fully intact black and white seat covering is also factory fitment and the original number plate remains fitted. The toolkit is present in the side locker. All switchgear, lights and instruments are fully functional. This unspoilt C70 is deliciously retro and a fitting tribute to this Honda icon.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The frame identification stamping and identity plate are correct for the a 1984 C70-C and match the vehicle documentation, as does the clearly legible engine number stamp. The 71.8cc engine develops 6bhp, enough to propel this machine to 43mph (depending on the rider’s weight!). The exhaust is a replacement piece in superb order and a very good replication of the original item. The clutchless 3-speed ‘all down’ transmission is easy to use and in perfect working order. Surprisingly nippy and a lot of fun!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 36 spoke chromium plated wheel rims are unrestored and display outer rim stampings. 2.50-17 tyres retain excellent tread and good rubber condition. Waterproof-Dustproof brakes with 110mm front and rear drums perform as they should.

HISTORY FILE
Despite many minor revisions since its launch in 1958, the Honda Cub style and ethos as a bike for the masses has remained constant, and it is no surprise that true iconic status is firmly cemented. This UK supplied C70-C example was registered new on 14th March 1984 by Bridge Street Motor Cycles in Witham, Essex and has covered just 3,600 miles from new with just three owners. The original motorcycle service booklet is present with two stamped entries from the supplying dealer. The first issue blue V5 document made out to first owner, Mr Walter Punt, is in the history folder along with some previous MOT certificates and two original Honda keys still with dealer fob attached!

This example boasts originality credentials rarely found as well as being the more desirable round headlight model. Everything about these bikes is legendary from their go anywhere ability, phenomenal reliability and even the famously successful marketing slogan, “You meet the nicest people on a Honda”, which ran from 1963 for 12 years and is still used today as a marketing case study. An excellent example of one of the most significant motor vehicles ever created.

Honda Z50JF Gold Limited Edition

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A collectors 1985 Honda Z50JF Monkey Bike Gold Limited Edition with just 1 mile!

MODEL HISTORY
The Honda Z-Series was a line of mini motorbikes manufactured by Honda Motorcycles. Introduced in 1961 as the Z100, the bikes were originally produced as a children’s ride at the Tama Tech amusement park which was owned by Honda. In 1964 the minibikes, later renamed Z50, were put into mainstream production that was to last for over 50 years until 2017. The initially unofficial nickname of ‘Monkey Bike’ was soon widely accepted and referred to the ‘arms out/hunched over’ stance adopted by riders. The Gold Limited Edition coincided with the 20th anniversary of the original Z100 and featured an extensive special Gold Chrome finish.

EQUIPMENT
Special Gold Chrome plating, backbone frame in high tensile tubular steel, telescopic front shock absorbers, swingarm rear suspension, collapsible handlebars, pressed steel wheels, twin rear view mirrors, gold chrome muffler heatshield, luggage rack, mini storage box, lockable helmet holder, side stand, primary kick start, horn, neutral indicator light, speed warning light, speedometer, odometer.

Recently discovered at the home of an elderly collector, the bike was covered in protective grease when new which has now been removed to reveal the stunning original finish. The teardrop fuel tank is amazing and retains the factory Honda Monkey Limited Edition decal. All other extensive Gold Chrome fitment is undamaged and in superb order with only some faint pitting visible, most notable on the front mudguard. Factory stickers and labels are present and correct and the stock frame number stamping is clearly legible. All trim, lenses, rubbers and plastic fittings are preserved and the foot brake still wears the factory protective plastic sheath! There are even remnants of the protective plastic wrapping on the mirror stalks! The original quilted waffle leatherette seat in brown with gold domed fasteners is perfect. A tiny speedometer with odometer is delightfully simplistic and reads just 1 mile! This is a very special limited-edition Monkey Bike.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The AB27E, air-cooled, 4-stroke OHC single-cylinder displaces 49cc developing a thumping 4.5hp! Starting is effortless with the primary kick start and the engine runs delightfully quiet and functions as it should with fully working manual choke. The engine is spotlessly clean with all stampings and stickers clearly visible. The four speed one down three up manual transmission performs perfectly and is very easy to use. Collectable motorbikes do not get more special than this limited-edition delivery mileage machine.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted four-hole polished chrome wheels are unrestored with very clear manufacture stampings. The original Tractorgrip 3.50-8 tyres still have rubber nobbles but show some cracking due to age. Front and rear drum brakes operate well and bring this lightweight fun bike to a perfectly adequate halt.

HISTORY FILE
Discovered at the home of an elderly gentleman who had purchased the bike new but had never registered it, this unrestored Gold Special Edition has covered just 1 mile from new! Discovered by and purchased in 2017 by Mr David Bradley who at one point owned a collection of around 30 Monkey Bikes including James May’s 2004 example, the bike has now been registered on 14th February 2019. The first MOT was carried out on 3rd March 2019 with no advisories as expected. A letter from Honda UK dated 29th September 2017 confirms the manufacture details drawn from archive records. Information confirmed is the model Honda Z50JF, frame and engine numbers and build date of 2nd March 1985 at the Suzuka factory in Japan. Completing the history file is the DVLA registration documents as well as the V5 certificate, and two original Honda keys are also gold in colour with the spare still in its plastic sheath.

This beautifully preserved, matching numbers example is the perfect addition to any collection, trendy publicity ornament or super-fun leisure bike.

HISTORY FILE
Just as internet car sales were becoming an ever-increasing option in the early 2000’s, pioneering companies such as JamJarCars and the Virgin Empire capitalised on this new and innovative way of selling cars direct to the public.  This UK example was supplied direct from Virgin Cars and registered new on the 14th September 2001.  A new vehicle order form and sales invoice is made out to first owner, Mr Michael Willcocks, who paid £25,328.56 including on the road charges.  All documentation, welcome letters and point of sale literature are included in the huge history file.  A wonderful addition to the history file is the original boxed hard back S2000 presentation book!  Furthermore, the original service booklet is stamped with 16 Honda Main Dealer service entries to fully verify the mileage, the last entry being October 2018 at 19,979 miles.  All service invoices to accompany the stamps are kept in the neat history folder, including the most recent Honda Main Dealer invoice with service check sheet giving the car a full clean bill of health.  In fact, every Honda service invoice is attached to a check sheet giving a full compliment of green indicators to emphasise just how well looked after this car is.  The original Honda wallet holds the vehicle handbooks and there are three sets of keys plus the grey master.

Upon the passing of Mr Willcocks in 2016, the car was passed to his son in law, Mr Gabri who has owned it ever since.  Remaining exactly at Honda intended and preserved with exceptionally low mileage, this fastidiously maintained example must not be missed.

EXTERIOR
The aerodynamic curvaceous lines of this top of the range Forth Generation Honda Prelude are beautifully accentuated by the Pacific Blue Pearl paintwork, (Code B-68P).  The fastidious long-term gentleman owner insisted on strict garage storage, he was truly fanatical over his pride and joy and even fitted genuine Honda headlamp guards upon purchase.  The paintwork boasts a deep glossy shine and uniform finish, and all factory panels are beautifully straight with even shut lines.  Small age-related markings and touched in stone chips to the original paintwork are only very minor, and there is a small blemish to the sunroof edge and a scratch to the driver’s door mirror.  All trim sections are immaculate and the supplying Honda main dealer number plates remain fitted.  An amazing preserved and unmolested example, without question one of the best examples in existence.

INTERIOR
The futuristic cabin of this sporting Prelude was hugely ahead of its time with Fluorescent Light Tube gauges and sweep-across cockpit, a very distinctive design.  The plush figure-hugging sports seats in Graphic Black Moquette, (Code Type-A), are as new with no rips, sagging or UV light damage.  Turn the key and you are treated to an exciting array of bright lights and graphics, perfectly positioned to inform the driver of vital readings as well as the all-important 4WS light extinguishing as it should after initial start-up.  Standard in every respect, except for a Bluetooth Kenwood stereo and tailored Prelude floor mats have been fitted from new.  Originality seekers will note colour code and build stickers in the door shuts, boot and under bonnet, as well as factory etching to all glass panels.  To find such an unmolested and preserved example is very rare indeed, this is a really special car.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Honda’s innovative Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control System (VTEC) unit optimises torque at low rpm and horsepower at high rpm.  The precision tuned naturally aspirated 2157cc engine produces 183bhp and 212Nm torque with the VTEC switchover point and resulting power peaks occurring at 6800rpm and 5300rpm respectively.  A top speed of 140mph and 0-62 dash in just 7.1 seconds is quoted in the marketing literature.   Precision steering accuracy is facilitated by Honda’s unique development of Electronic 4-Wheel Steer (4WS), a system which operates perfectly in this example.  The driver’s choice five speed manual gearbox is light, exact and perfectly tuned to capitalise on the engine power bands.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The optional 15in premium alloys wheels are in perfect original condition aside from two miniscule chips to one wheel rim, and the Honda centre caps are as new.  New matching Toyo tyres have just been fitted.  Absolute confidence can be assured with front and rear disc brakes with electronic four-channel anti-lock assistance to bring the car up to a steady halt.

HISTORY FILE
An incredible history file.  Registered new on 1st August 1996 by Honda Main Dealer Westgate Motors of Grimsby, the first owner was BJB Lift Trucks Ltd.  In February 1998, avid Honda enthusiast, Mr David Pool, purchased the car from Chatsworth Honda in Derby.  A vehicle order from and sales invoice from Chatsworth Honda illustrates the price paid in 1998 of £18,499 with £3,000 part exchange allowance for Mr Pool’s Third Generation Prelude.  With a Honda Civic performing daily duties, the Prelude was strictly a dry usage car for best and was kept garaged on a battery conditioner at all other times.  The history file is superb with the original service book containing 20 stamped entries, incredible for a car having covered just 52,051 miles.  All service entries are Honda Main Dealer and specialist, and the switch to specialist servicing occurred when Mr Pool’s trusted Honda Technician left the main dealer and he followed him to the specialist company, wanting only that particular Technician to work on the car!  There are documented cambelt changes and the huge history file contains many supporting Honda service invoices.  The Honda clip wallet contains all handbooks and point of sale literature as well as three sets of original keys, the valet key and code tag taped into the document holder and the red master fob still sealed in the plastic box!  Not content with one set of headlamp covers, Mr Pool purchased a spare set just in case which remain boxed in the boot!

A wonderful touch to the history file is an original sales brochure and incredibly a full mileage and fuel log kept by Mr Pool throughout his entire ownership from 1998 and 18,232 miles to 2017 and 49,205 miles upon his sad passing.  Sold by KGF Classic Cars to Mr Hoult in November 2018 he continued the mileage log and devotion and only selling to purchase another weekend car, a BMW Z4M Coupe.   This vehicle is certain to appeal to a collector of performance classics wanting one of the best, most original low mileage examples in existence.

HISTORY FILE
First registered on the 1st March 1975 this rare UK bike is one of Honda’s earliest trial bikes and represents an iconic piece of Honda history.  The current custodian, Mr Chris Weymouth owned such a motorcycle in 1974 and after just two weeks of ownership was forced to sell it after disapproving parents did not agree with the choice of transport!  Despite this and fast forward 39 years to 2013, Chris managed to acquire another!  The hunt was exhausting with so few ever being available so when this example was offered he had to buy it, it was just like his one in 1974 and in perfect condition.  Lack of use and the itch firmly scratched now means the bike is available for the next lucky custodian.  Offered with a collection of MOT certificates, invoices and a workshop manual.  Three keys with one operating both the ignition and steering lock.
