1979-1982 HONDA Prelude I


Overview

Based on the second generation Civic, but powered by the Accord’s free-spinning 1.6-litre engine, the Prelude was a sweet little coupé that sold steadily and paved the way for the company’s gradual move upmarket. The Prelude was cramped and had an interior that could charitably described as eccentric, and in the UK, it was also rather expensive, and that limited the Prelude’s appeal in a market littered with talented players like the VW Scirocco and Alfasud Sprint. Well-kept examples fetch good money today, and are even being imported from Japan.
