1972 Honda 600

The Honda 600 was their entrance vehicle into the US market. The vehicle was equipped with disc brakes and a two-cylinder engine. With a price tag of around $1400, these two-door four-person sedans with over 40 mpg combined fuel economy, were economical and practical. A 'H' emblem could be found on the cowl.

In 1971, a two-door coupe joined the two-door sedan. On the rear of the quarter window was a large round 'Coupe' insignia. The coupes also had a small hatch at the rear, integrated parking lamps, and a different grille than the sedan.

The 600 Sedan sold for $1,400 while the 2-door Coupe was listed for $1,540.

Powering the 600 was a vertical, overhead-cam two-cylinder, air-cooled engine offering 36 horsepower. The engines had four main bearings, solid valve lifters, and one Keihin-Seiki sidedraft carburetor. Disc brakes were in the front and drums were in the rear. A four-speed manual gearbox was standard while an Hondamatic was available as optional equipment.
