JDM 92 Honda CR-X Delsol SIR TransTop EG2 B16A VTEC with 53k miles Automatic, factory Green Delsol
Real clean and good looking car, rare Transtop version. All original non accident car minus the aftermarket wheels and lug nuts. Car runs and drives great.
Driver seat has some wear, passenger door panel has sun fade and cracks on top, and on the corner of the front left and rear left bumpers the paint has small cracks in it. The tilt motor for the roof has stripped out gears(I ordered new ones waiting) so the rear trunk does not retrack the roof.

he Honda del Sol is a 2-seater targa top car manufactured by Honda in the 1990s. Based on the Honda Civic platform, the del Sol was the successor to the popular Honda CR-X. It debuted in 1992 in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The Spanish name del Sol translates to of the sun, and refers to the car's opening roof. It featured a removable hardtop that stowed in the trunk and a retractable rear window. Manual and automatic “TransTop” roofs were available.
The Civic Del Sol SiR received acclaim in Japan as one of the first naturally aspirated mass production cars to output more than 100 PS per litre and the first with an electronic targa roof (Transtop model). During its debut on Japanese car show "Best Motoring" reviewer Keiichi Tsuchiya declared the Del Sol SiR to be the most important Japanese sports car for a decade. Performance specifications for the Japan Domestic Market SiR give the two-seater a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 7 seconds and a standing quarter mile time of 14.7 as reviewed by Option magazine in 1992.
The del Sol was first introduced to Japan, Europe, and North America in 1992 for the 1993 model year. Trim levels in the United States were initially limited to the S and Si models powered by SOHC Honda D-series engines while the Japanese market received the SiR powered by a 170 PS (125 kW; 168 hp) B16 SiR-II DOHC VTEC and featuring optional LSD.
The base "S" model (called the VXi in Japan from 1992 to 1994, but after 1995 called the VGi) came with a 1.5 liter SOHC 16-valve four cylinder engine and rode on 13-inch steel wheels, available only at Honda Verno Japanese dealerships. The Japanese VXi/VGi versions came with a Honda D15B-VTEC engine. This was an entry level VTEC engine that produced 130 PS (96 kW; 128 hp), matching the power of the 1.6 Si version. Despite the body resemblance to a mid-engine car design, the del Sol shared a front-engine design with the contemporary Honda Civic.
Depending on model and market, the options included a rear spoiler, custom floor mats, an automatic transmission, power steering, heated mirrors, front fog lights (1993–1995 models only), traction control system (Japan Domestic Market only), limited slip differential (Japan Domestic Market only), and air conditioning.
An option available in Japan and Europe was the TransTop, an electric mechanism which retracted the targa top into the trunk via a push of a button. The roof is operated by flicking two catches above the windows, then holding down a button. The trunk lid raises vertically and two arms extend into the targa top. After locking the lid to the arms, the arms pull the targa into the trunk lid, which lowers back down with the roof inside. The open process is reversed for the closure and return of the targa top.
