Honda S600 1964: For early adopters: Advanced technology, with idiosyncratic characteristics

Recently a Lloyds auction for classic motorcars sold among other things a Ford Falcon GT HO for over a million dollars. Some may ask why but nonetheless that’s the big news, but a critical element of that auction was a 1964 Honda S 600 convertible coupe roadster, it sold for $18,500.

The description described it as “This slick convertible was the most fashionable car to be driving in with sizzling acceleration. Powered by a 606 cc four carburettor engine”.

My colleague Paul Murrell actually owned one of these devices and he joins me on line now to give us some background and some understanding and some reality about just what the car was like.
