This Insight has gone through a near
restoration with parts from an immaculate donor vehicle including engine and drivetrain. Extensive
maintenance has also been performed with OEM Honda parts. Besides for
the body and frame, relatively few parts have the 346k miles that
are attributed to this car. It is unlikely to find a more
meticulously cared for Insight for sale.

all Insights experience
The following parts were swapped
from an immaculate donor vehicle with 109,507 miles:
(Notes on the donor
vehicle and why it was salvaged: it was my personal vehicle that I
kept in top shape. It was totaled by a neighbor's SUV while parked
outside of my house. My last tripometer reading showed 67.5mpg over
615 miles. Swap was performed in the fall of last year, and I have
driven approximately 1,000 miles since. Can provide more info if
interested.)Engine assembly with transmission
Wiring harness and ECU
Front suspension assembly, axles,
Complete interior including carpet
and headliner. Everything except for dashboard. Did a deep cleaning
to chassis underneath panels especially in cavities and corners that
are normally covered. Also cleaned the backs of interior pieces.
All interior clips are intact and in their correct locations.
Absolutely meticulous job!
Body panels including: both door
assemblies, rear hatch, both lower door
sills, driver's front fender, rear wheel covers,
exterior A-pillar trim
Steering column assembly in one
piece (every key lock was swapped inc. glove
Brake master cylinder Hatch motor release (works great)
Aside from the salvage/rebuilt title, the biggest negative is the condition
of the body. It shows the high mileage. Paint is chipped and
scratched all around. Roof is oxidized. Some parking lot dings. Many
surface level imperfections.
Other issues - the front spring seats can be slightly squeaky on bumps. I
have the radio on and live with it. Brake rotor dust shields were
distorted and causing some noise, so I have removed them post photos.
Not necessary to replace. I
made this ad with the help of a log I kept during the restoration
process. I believe I have covered everything. Let me know what questions
you may have or if you would like to see the car in person.
Selling because I have too many
cars, and I no longer need an efficient commuter.
