The S800 was made when the Honda mark was still the wide-H. Getting matching Honda mark stuff is pretty hard. Momo-style horn buttons alone cost \30,000 or more. I was however able to pick-up this wide-H gear **** for next to nothing off Yafuoku. It's smooth, warm in winter, and much easier on big hands.

I need this shift **** in my life right now! This would go perfect in my 1975 Honda CVCC wagon!

The wood shift **** looks good Neko and the Honda "H" mimics the one found on the steering wheel center cap.

Have you thought about the Momo Prototipo steering wheel? I had one and loved it, I regret selling it with my last car...

The Chris Amon wheel is very similar in feel, and though perhaps not as classic in looks as the Prototipo, it was given to me, so that suits me fine!

The Chris Amon wheel suites your interior. I had to chuckle at the "Remove before flight" tag.

Ha!
The Remove Before Flight is a kludge with the clothes peg to hold the choke on, as like most, it slips in slowly otherwise...



Night drive!

Thank you Neko for verifying that S500 is the same one in the auction. It appears the owner added backup lights to the rear facia, which wasn't original to the S500. This may have been done for aesthetics or for added safety, either way it's still a very nice car and I hope it finds a good home.

Indeed!
The car was a UK delivery, and one of many repatriated.
I have converted the water temp gauge to normal units, but not the speedmeter yet.
