33k Mile Honda Accord Wagon Is A Time Capsule From The 1990s

You can buy some pretty superb used Hondas for $12,000 including the iconic S2000. But, if one of the finest sports cars of its time doesn’t float your boat, perhaps this 1991 Honda Accord Wagon will.

The car is currently up for sale in Naperville, Illinois from Gold Coast Motors and has a classified ad price on eBay of $11,900. Is it worth that much? We’re not convinced but there are probably some Accord fanatics out there who think it is.

Both the interior and exterior of the wagon appear to be in superb shape with glistening teal paint and a tan cloth cabin. There are also silver hub caps that help make the car look like it has just rolled off the production line. For a car of this vintage and with such a high price tag, one may expect it to have virtually no mileage on the clock. That’s not the case. In fact, it has 33,726 miles (54,276 km) under its belt.

Power is provided by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an automatic transmission and we’ve got no doubt that the car will soldier on for decades to come if it is well maintained. But, would you really be willing to pay this much for an Accord?

We also can’t help but point out just how weird it is to see this Accord on display at a dealership with a Lamborghini Gallardo in the background, various Porsche 911s, a pair of Mk4 Toyota Supras, and an Acura NSX. Perhaps we’re missing something and the Accord Wagon will be considered a classic like the NSX in the decades to come?

    I would pay $9000 for it

    “Silver Hubcaps”? Those are aluminum wheels, not hubcaps. Just sayin’…..

  • DetrinKD

    Wow! That is so nostalgic to see! My first car was an Accord sedan of that year! It was the darker green color and it had a burgundy interior! I LOVED that thing! It had 190k on it when I bought it and gave me virtually NO problems. I think the A/C stopped blowing cold but was an easy fix.

    The sedan and coupe versions of this particular generation of Honda Accord, to me, was the most attractive. This was also at a time, where car manufacturers like Honda changed generations/body styles like every 2-3 years.

    • Adilos Nave

      Correct. I think 1989 was their best year ever for the accord and this particular generation came out in 1990. There were so many of them! A lot in that champagne color. You are right that they changed body styles on a regular basis. Back then I believe it was every 4 years with a slight facelift every 2. Kept things fresh. I miss the days of these simple cars.

        I had an 89 Accord. Payed $1400 for it a few years, it was in pretty good condition. Loved that car for the five days I owned it lol.

  • MJ Coffey

    Man, what a beauty! 🙂

  • iggination

    I think it’s worth the money. These accords were so reliable during those years! The drivetrain was bullet proof. The only issue some of them had was the clear coat would oxidize too quickly if kept in the sun daily. How many other reliable cars can you get at this price that’s in great condition? Not many good ones IMO.

  • Patrick

    Cool, but why is the car covered in Vaseline?

    • KareKakk

      Looks overwhelmingly fresh and tasty, but… if not vaseline, someone found some gallons of silicone spray at the boss’ office and went berzerk with it. Barely a matte surface or hose anywhere, everything is gloss.

  • willhaven

    My first car and one of my favorite models. The wagon is pretty cool now as an old schmuck, but I miss my 5-speed LX sedan!

  • Aeromann

    I like the nineties.

  • I LIKE THE COLOR COMBO AND THE WHEELS BUT I’M MORE IMPRESSED WITH THE DETAILING.

  • Craig

    I would love to own this. I’ve owned many Honda’s including a 1991 Accord EX-R Coupe. White with a 5-speed. A great car. Sadly it was stolen and stripped. The police found it – and it was ‘put right’ [costing the insurance company over $12,000 to do so] but it never ‘felt right’ to me. So I eventually traded it in. As for the wagon – I’d like it better with the manual transmission. And just so you know… those are NOT hubcaps those are aluminum wheels. [or rims or whatever]

    If it was the sedan version I’d love to own it. My dad loved muscle cars and my mom owned several Honda Civics and Accords from the late 80s to the mid 90s. I have so many memories sitting in those accords. It got me to buy a nicely conditioned 89 Accord. Five days later it was totaled, girl ran a red light and Tboned me. She ran and I was crap out of luck.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      hopefully karma comes in on her for what she did to your beloved accord

  • William rowe

    33k miles, looks new, does it drive good still, I say yes 12k is a ok price and not a insane price like some selling for 70k to 100k

  • charlotteharry57

    I owned a ’92 EX sedan and, until my current ride, it was the best car I’ve ever owned. That being said, it was not totally trouble-free. My biggest beef with it was the 2.2L engine. It was before the days of VTEC and boy, did you have to floor the thing to get any real power out of it. It was my one adventure in leasing and I couldn’t wait for the lease to end. I have no doubt it might still be on the road today.

  • Bash

    Price it at $5000 and I’ll take it now!

  • Honda NSX-R

    That belongs in a Honda museum.

  • Alduin

    Best generation Accord. These are tanks and will go 1 million miles. I still see a few on the road occasionally.

  • Paul

    I always had a fondness for these Accords. Their styling was one of the best IMO at the time.

    • Alduin

      They still look pretty good to this day.

  • BlackPegasus

    I’m a 90s kid, and if your mom pulled up to pick you up from school in a Teal Accord you were considered solidly middle class and cool 😄
