History
My tiny show car. Honda's first "Production" intended for export. Never imported into the USA. Mine was originally purchased by a US serviceman in Okinawa in '66. Specified for USA - Left hand drive, speedo in MPH, temp gauge in degrees F. Repainted 2006 in original color.
57 HP, 9500 RPM redline, 91 MPH top speed. Has a chain drive to each rear wheel. In comparison to modern cars, it is "like driving a go cart with a chain saw engine"
