1978 Honda Accord Overview

Similar in most aspects to previous Accords, the 1978 Honda Accord still utilized the CVCC Honda engine, which helped it pass the new auto emissions tests. It came as a hatchback that looked remarkably similar to today's Civics and a four-door model. The LX version was introduced in 1978 and came standard with velour upholstery and a digital clock.

In an ironic twist, the '78 Accord was named "One of the Best 10 Cars in the U.S." by Road & Track Magazine, but was also named one of the worst cars of all time by Forbes. I guess its rating depended on whether you considered it as a new car or took a historical retrospective view.

The '78 Accord had problems with failing transmissions, trim pieces falling off, and the interior discoloring pretty quickly.

As with other older Accords, you can find lots of information online about spare parts, rebuilding, and reconditioning the cars if you're an old-car hound.
