Richard really went for more unique cars this time around, but he doesn’t buy anything unless he knows there’s a market for it now or in the near future. Since the Honda 600 is the 1st mass market car Honda produced for the United States – there should be demand for years to come.
This 36hp 2-cylinder engine car has 35,000 original miles. It’s interesting to note that someone can go out and buy a Honda generator today that has a bigger engine than this car. The 1977 Trans Am Bandit Edition we have at Gas Monkey, with a 6.6 liter V6, has an engine that’s exactly 11 times larger.
Back in 1972, the Coupes carried a base price of around $1,500; Richard picked this one up for $22,000. We’ll keep you updated on what Richard plans on doing with it, but for now we’ll just enjoy having it around.
