1968 Honda N600

Determined to enter the American car market, Honda developed the N600 alongside the N360, which was produced for Japan’s domestic market. One of a group of test vehicles, this N600 became the very first Honda car to be imported to the US and arrived via the port of Los Angeles. Americans were not initially impressed by the N600, but when the fuel crisis arrived, these diminutive cars were embraced as fuel-efficient, sturdy, and reliable alternatives to their American counterparts.
