i have a 72 honda 600 sedan up for sale. most people have never heard of these or seen one so i will give a little info. its the first honda car sold in the united states (before the civic). it is a very small car. its the size of a original austin mini. its hard to see how really small it is in pictures. its alot different in person.
it has a 36hp air cooled 2 cylinder with a syncronized 4 speed manual transmission. its kinda like a motorcycle engine. the transmission is part of the engine and share the same oil. this is a really rare car! what makes mine even more rare is that it runs and drives perfect. these dont come up for sale very often and when they do youll have to drive across country to get one. they say there are only about 200 of these still operational in the US and most of those are in museums or honda dealership showroom floors. what also makes mine rare is that it is 99% complete. everything is there, even the domelight lense and original spare tire. also even has the jack and tools under the hood. the only things missing on the car is a trim piece on the passenger side fender (which can be bought on ebay) and the washer nozzle. it does not have the factory radio, it has a cd player in it now and also comes with a old radio like the stock one. you just wont find a n600 like mine for sale and if you do it will be one that is restored, a lot more money, and halfway across the country.
everything on the car works.. heater, cigarette lighter, wipers, you name it. everything on the car is good, doesnt need any work any where at all. all it needs it bodywork and paint. the kuhmo tires have good tread. it has air horns instead of the original horn. i have it registered as a historic vehicle so you dont have to worry about getting it inspected or plates renewed..but it will pass inspection no problem. im also including a original factory shop manual for this car.
i have done a lot of work to this thing and added a lot of new parts. it has new brake pads. new carpet. new fuel filter. new door seals. all new points ignition. new plugs. i just rebuilt the carburetor. fresh oil change with brad penn oil and new oil filter. i have cleaned out the fuel tank and coated the inside with red-kote fuel tank liner. the original fuel gauge sender was siezed up so i replaced that with a autometer sender and also have a autometer fuel gauge. it has a newer muffler on it. its like a tractor muffler lol. its a little loud but comes with a silencer. i have also put new undercoat on the entire underside of the car.
i think someone back in the 70's customized this thing a bit.. it has koni rear shocks which are really rare. chrome valve cover. they painted it blue. it has blue seats. and sportier plastic mirrors i have never seen before. and they added a tach..but doesnt work.
this thing will do 70mph down the highway all day long. i drive it everywhere no problem. drives straight and rids just like a civic. this is the funnest car i have ever driven!! but i will warn you that you will get a TON stares in this thing lol. it gets more attention than any other car on the road! if you take it to a car show, it is going to get more attention than the $100k show cars.
as you can see i really love this car. these cars are very nice when restored and that is what i had planned on doing with mine but i have to let it go. im sure there is more about this car that i forgot but if you have any questions just ask. please post here or pm me for quick response if interested. thanks!
