Legendary Manual: 1990 Acura Legend V6

The first generation Legend was launched in 1987 as the top of the line for Honda's new Acura luxury brand in the USA.  It was a by-product of an odd agreement between Honda and Britain's Austin Rover Group (the British version was the Rover 800-series) and the first production Honda to be powered by a V6 engine.  Find this 1990 Acura Legend V6 offered for $2200 in San Bernadino, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Brian.

Twenty two hundred bones for a one-owner, all-original, manual-trans Japanese car from the 90s ain't bad deal at all...and this isn't some rusted survivor, this thing has nice paint, & nice interior...I really hope this isn't a scammer.

Honda's C27A V6 engine pushes out 161 horsepower from its 90 degree 2.7 liter arrangement into a front mounted 5-speed transaxle.  The result isn't rocket-ship acceleration, but it isn't 2CV slow either.

  1. This car makes me wish I was in the market for a fun daily driver. Looks in great shape and would be fun to run around in.

  2. First coupe I ever remember seeing with an automatic "seatbelt presenter" to help shorten the over the shoulder reach for a front seat passenger to grab the seatbelt.
