Rapport Ritz

Obvious really. The Honda Accord Gen 1 is cool

Sensible Japanese meets front spoilers and any colour you like.

How to improve the Honda Accord. Well Granada rear lights are a start. How many made?

Rapport Ritz Convertible offered for sale in The Times between 22nd February 1985 and 7th June 1983. Price went from £17500 to on application and down to last advertised price of “offers around £12500”.

A December 2001 Honest John column in the Telegraph had advice for the owner of the Rapport Ritz saloon, registration number KDC 716W, pictured below.

Putting off the Ritz

I have a 1982 Rapport Ritz. It is a 1982 Honda Accord 1.6 Hondamatic four-door saloon
with aluminium body modifications by Rapport of Park Lane, Connolly leather, walnut
veneers, air-conditioning and alloy wheels. The car has been in my family since the
1980s, has covered 52,000 miles and was one of the last of only 19 such models built.
It might even be the sole survivor. It has now been laid up for a few years and
requires some attention, but I need the space it occupies, so have to let it go. How
much is it worth?
S.H., Barnes
In running condition with no rust and a faultless interior, it is probably worth
£2,000-£2,500. I can’t value it as a non-runner from an old photo because I don’t know
how much work is needed, but if any reader would like to take it on, please call Simon

Hudson on 07951 960789.

Before you try, the number is disconnected. Car registration KDC 716W was first registered on 13th November 1980 and the last tax disc ran out on 1st March 1990. No MOT records held online.
