View Full Version : Coupe or prelude?

Ok, you gotta answer me what this is. It's for sale in my country.

It's says it's an '88 injection Accord. But is it a Prelude?

its a prelude. 'ludes are a little sleeker and the front is a little different then the coupe.

that looks more like a US prelude then a US 3g but w/ the options you all have in europe i don't know. i'll place my guess on prelude judging from the hood, grill, and the bottem part of the bumper.

it is prelude alright, but it is not '88.
it is 86-87 prelude. In 88-89 honda did some face lift on prelude.

It's a 2nd Gen Lude. And that has to be a USDM lude b/c of the wheel placement. I see those are all the time in town.

it is a lude, look at the trunk, it flares up to make a "spoiler" accords are more smooth and sexy lookin

11-29-2003, 12:08 PM
thats a lude with the jdm b20a in it. you know the 3 gen accord motors and 2nd gen prelude motors that is an awsome find. what contry are you in???

yup.. deffinately a lude.. cuz my coupe aint that UGLY!!!! hahahaa

11-29-2003, 11:25 PM
definetly a lude you can tell by the end its smaller then the accords

Alright, I thought it was a Prelude but I got confused cus it said Accord. It's hella expencive, it costs 4 times as much as a 3g Accord!
85lude--> I don't think it has the JDM b20, maybe the 138hp b20a but dunno. I'm from Denmark

11-30-2003, 09:27 AM
well here in the u.s we call them jdm b20a because the motor wasnt avalible in the states. but still its a b20a.

yeah that has the jdm b20 in it.. look at the bulge in the hood, that was to fit the dohc cam gear cover under the hood.. gorgeous car. i would definately buy it, and yes the jdm b20 is 167 hp if i'm not mistaken, definately a fast car
