THE APPEAL


Reliable, well-equipped and affordable, Honda's best-selling Accord is a globally recognised automotive sensation. Popular with young and old alike, the fuel-efficient vehicle has provided a comfortable, practical solution for millions worldwide. Its Motorsport ties continually attract enthusiasts who modify and adapt their vehicles to resemble the low and sporty touring cars, making untouched models a rare find. 

Fortunately, this fourth-generation 1991 registered Accord still has its factory good looks, unmodified and completely original. This is a great example of the model, with low ownership and low miles, this is an attractive opportunity to own one of the best vehicles to come from the Japanese giant.

THE HISTORY AND PAPERWORK 


  • V5c present 
  • First registered in August 1991 Devon, United Kingdom 
  • Exported to Germany with the same initial owner 
  • Sold to Honda enthusiast in Switzerland who experienced issues getting it registered 
  • Purchased in 2021 by collector and enthusiast and brought back to Devon 
  • MOT until 2023 February with no advisories 
  • Original book pack 
  • Last MOT February 2021, the vehicle is however exempt 
  • German service record 
  • German registration documents 

This CB3 Accord left a Devon dealership some 30 years ago, accompanied the first owner to Germany when she relocated, later found itself in Switzerland and if by sheer coincidence, was found and brought back to its home county by its current keeper.

A unique life, a life that has seen the vehicle kept original and used sparingly, with only 49,500 miles covered.

THE INTERIOR 


  • Pleasant & well kept 
  • Cord fabric seats 
  • In complete working order 

Inside the Accord, you’re greeted with 90’s affordable luxury and pleasant simplicity. Comfort, affordability and equipment were always the leading selling points for the Accord and the inside you’re reminded of just that. 

The condition is fantastic throughout, the cord seats have stood the test of time and there’s very little indication of wear present. Even the steering wheel and gear knob contain little to no sign of use, impressive really. All buttons and gauges are reported to be in full working order, no surprise considering the reputation these get for their build quality. 

THE EXTERIOR 


  • Original beige paint 
  • Tidy example 
  • Few blemishes present 

Even stock these fourth-generation models look fantastic. Low slung design, wrap-around rear window and a sporty, aggressive front end that looks just at home on the Fuji speedway as it does in the suburbs. 

The condition of the car is overall very good with only the tiniest of blemishes present. We’ve done our best to photograph these. The beige colour is a suitable pairing to the Accord brand, docile, passive, not in your face or flashy, just straight-forward, good looking enough for the majority. 

THE MECHANICS 


  • 1997cc 16v Straight-4 
  • F-Series Engine 
  • 5-Speed Manual 
  • Runs and drives smooth 

During our visit, the car was driven a few miles to a more suitable location for the photography. It started easily, ran smooth with minimal vibration and fuss. The current owners report no faults and that the vehicle is in fine operational order.

The current MOT runs until February 2023 and with no advisories the current owner is happy to have the car re-tested and a full 12 months provided if required. These vehicles are renowned for their reliability and efficiency and with this car's mileage being so low, we’re confident it's got a lot more to give.

SUMMARY


Low mileage, low ownership, in great condition and free from any teenagers modifications, this Honda Accord is a rare find with a unique story of how it followed its owner to Europe and somehow managed to return to its original county. A Japanese legend, with a lot more to give.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
