Introduced in 1969 for the 1970 model year, the Honda N600 was the first Honda automobile to be officially imported to the United States and was sold through Honda’s retail motorcycle network. Based off of the smaller N360 but featuring a larger 600cc engine, the N600 was designed for export markets in the US and Europe where faster highway speeds were more common. Powered by an aircooled two-cylinder single-overhead cam engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission the N600 and the smaller coupe version produced 36 horsepower and 31 ft. lbs. of torque and boasted up to 40 miles to gallon with a top speed of 75 miles per hour. This 1972 Honda N600 Sedan is in remarkable condition for its age, and has recently been repainted in its original tan color. The black interior remains mostly original, although the seats appear to have been recovered at one point as the original upholstery was all vinyl while the seats are now upholstered in a combination of black vinyl and gray fabric. Power front disc brakes came standard on all N600’s and the car rides on Falken Sincera 145/80R10 tires which are mounted on a set of original wheels with original Honda hubcaps which are in great shape. Additionally, a set of original California blue and yellow license plates registered to the car indicate that this N600 has been a California resident its entire life. According to production numbers from Honda, 15,500 coupes and 35,000 N600 sedans were sold in the U.S. before production was discontinued in 1972 as a result of changing emissions standards and since that time estimates put the number of surviving N600 sedans and coupes to be at less than 1,000 still in existence. Overall this 1972 N600 Sedan is a wonderful example of a now extremely rare and highly sought after model as the first Honda automobile officially imported into the United States.
