The 2nd generation Honda Prelude was introduced for the 1982 model year and produced until 1987. This generation introduced pop-head headlights, a low slung hood, sport bucket seats and the use of a double wishbone front suspension to improve handling in comparison to it’s predecessor. It was produced at the Sayama, Saitana plant in Japan for the Japanese and international markets. The model was replaced in 1987 with the introduction of the 3rd generation Prelude, while the Prelude nameplate itself continued production until it was discontinued following 2001 with the fifth generation.

The Majorette Honda Prelude debuted for the 1990 Majorette 200 Serie mainline in red. The casting is based on the 1982 to
1987 2nd generation Prelude. It was originally produced from 1990 to 1993 when it was discontinued.

I originally bought this Majorette Honda Prelude at a local flea market a few days ago. The car has seen better days, so I took it apart for a repaint and wheel swap. The original wheels were too damaged to be used, so I replaced with some newer MBX wheels and replaced the suspension from a newer one. It was redone in Gloss Red, redid the headlights and taillights, and panel detailed.

  • Majorette of this era are so incredibly underrated! I want the entire 200 series from this era because I have several but unlike Matchbox and Hot Wheels this is largely underrepresented and an unexplored part of my collection, thanks for sharing!

  • Looks like you took a lot of time on this one! I remember these cars NEW, I loved when cars had pop-up headlights!! FYI your pic on the homepage for this article is messed up and you only see the very bottom sliver or tops of each of the 4 pictures.

    • Yeah the mobile app is a little broken sometimes, though it’s easier to send photos than on my Mac.
