$4500 for a 94 Legend -

If I lived closer, i would certainly go and take a look - https://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/cto...821339324.html

Only 78K on the odometer and looks like it's in good shape.

meh. automatic...

I think there are better used cars for $5k than that.
But i guess it all depends on what you're looking for in a vehicle...


I cant say that any one wants the Legend... especially at that price.


But VERY cool find, nonetheless!

Funny thing, that car is a smokin' deal compared to this one (1988 Accord Coupe, 75,000 for $4,400):

The Accord is a good looking car as well. Incredibly low mileage. Needs to be cleaned up a little on the inside - but a nice car nonetheless!!

I was thinking it would be a great winter time driver.

Probably would be as I'm sure it has small narrow tires. Just noticing no AC that I can see on the dash. Back in 88 when I was looking to buy a new car I was all over a new Acura Integra up until I found out that both AC and a radio were dealer installed options and drove the price up another $1800. The radio I could have done myself, but it was a brand new car. The AC was a different story.

Back then there were a number of aftermarket A/C alternatives which were markedly better than the (then) Honda A/C. Cars came in without A/C for a few reasons, 1) to keep them from directly competing with the (then) new Acura brand, and 2) to keep the value below a certain level to avoid duties and tariffs.

Personally, I was thinking to buy the Accord and use it for winter duty and save the TL from the rigors of New England salt.

I understand the tariff piece but not the competing portion as this WAS an Acura. In hindsight, I should have bought the Integra, but as a recent college graduate - $1800 was a lot of $$$.

Would be a fun car to have for the Winter, but also cost you some incremental funds to get it from CO to NH.

Easy enough on the transport; my son lives in Denver; good reason for a visit and a quick road trip.

Edit: I drove a bunch of his stuff out there around Thanksgiving in the TL (loaded to the gills and with both a mountain bike and big pack on the roof). The trip is two long-assed days or three easy days.

Good looking Legend. Being an 'L' model and automatic really hurt the value, but i could see someone paying around 2-3k due to the mileage.

The '88 Accord is a DX model, so no A/C from the factory. Also, no power windows, power door locks or power mirrors.

I had an '88 LX. The A/C worked but not too well.

Agreed. I was thinking if I were to buy that car I'd do a B20A swap (bolt in swap); this engine should make that 2,400 pound car quite a bit of fun to drive.

I get tempted now and then to find a 88/89 LX-i coupe and do that swap along with a proper coilover set along with modern sound deadening and stereo

I've always liked the Legend (who doesn't).. Back in the late 80's my uncle bought an 89 new, then he traded it years later for a 94 or 95 green GS sedan, I think it was called Sherwood Green, that was gorgeous..
