    For reference here's my '77 & '79 compared to show the different frt panels, grille & headlight mountings;

    (ignore Non-USA bumper/indicator & removed side indicator)
    Just to be cruel & point out your RH fender that will likely be a pain to replace since buyers found them starting to rust out within 2-years in salted areas due to the lack of plastic arch-liners, & even Honda started fitting the later parts to cars to placate owners.

    Personally I went for 1g Integra frt seats which only required drilling 1 hole to fit but obviously won't be easy to find now either.

    Also an option if it took your fancy, I went for a late 1g Civic steering wheel repainted for wood-grain. Bolts straight on, & includes adaptor hub you may want for aftermarket wheels. But if you wanted aftermarket or other Honda wheels the spline pattern didn't change until EK Civic (for adaptors).

    Re: CVCC - the big news with CVCC was that emissions were so low the car did not require catalytic converters for the first several years. So unlike most cars of the same model years, Accords could still use leaded gas. Notice that the hole in the gas filler tube is bigger than modern cars. Unleaded pumps used a smaller nozzle. The larger nozzles on leaded gas pumps would not fit into the hole in the filler tube of cars requiring unleaded gas.

    Some other possible parts sources:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/595006323860531/ Facebook page for "Old Hondas - New Old Stock Parts". I think you have to "join" the group but if you click to request a join they are pretty quick.
    Civic Garage, Your source for 1st Generation Honda Civic parts Civic Garage. Australian seller who also has quite a few 1G Accord parts. Shipping isn't too outrageous and the US>Aussie dollar exchange rate produces some very good prices.
    Accord They have some stuff for the 1G.
    https://www.hondapartsnow.com/ NOS and reproduction parts. Surprising what you can find there.
    ebay. The 1G Ebay listing forum here on 3geez is on an RSS feed from eBay so whenever new parts hit, they are listed in the forum. Not always but most of the time. They regularly have various 1G Honda service manuals for not much money. (around $20 with shipping) A very good investment for sure.

    Of course finding big parts, things like body panels, seats, dash, etc. or even some things like shocks can be hit-or-miss but if one is patient one can find a surprising number of parts. And don't overlook wrecking yard search sites like car-parts.com

    Good luck with the project.

    Oh, wait. You're over 40 so you may remember leaded and unleaded gas pumps. ;-)
