David Sidhom’s MS-1 1974 Civic is not your typical 1200 1st generation Honda that’s daily driven. Down under and out of Sydney Australia, this unique Civic is one of only 3 speculated on the mainland and is sporting one of the hardest to find packages circa the 1970’s. The Mugen MS-1 package is a complete engine overhaul that adds onto the little EB2 engine an extra 10-15 HP and gives the car some needed aerodynamic changes. It brought the cars 0-60 acceleration time in just at 8.0 seconds.

Featuring everything from the CV4 carb’s with its respected 90 degree-bent distributor to the massive accessory wing in the rear, the MS-1 package was one of 3 packages available from Mugen Japan and designed by Hirotoshi Honda himself, Soichiro Honda’s son.
