The Honda S600 was produced from 1964 through 1966. There were two bodystyles available, a two-door convertible and two-door coupe. This made it Honda's first car to be available in two versions and their first mass produced automobile. The design and appearance of the car was very similar to its predecessor, the S500.
As the years progressed, there were only mild changes to the vehicle. The most visual were to the frontal area including the headlights, bumper and grille. Under the hood was a four-cylinder, water-cooled, DOHC engine with four carburetors. The S500 had a displacement size of 492cc; the S600 increased that displacement size to 606cc, thus the changes to the name.
The SM600 was an upgrade package offered on the S600. The package included special paint colors, exclusive badging, radio and speaker, cigarette lighter, heater, upgraded seats, detachable seat rack, and reversing lights.By Daniel Vaughan | Jun 2007
