A Unique Honda Gets A New Lease On Life

The very first Honda car sold in the US has been revived to it's former glory. I always marvel at folks who have the time, skill and patience to do things like this.
Serial One is Honda's nickname for this N600. It arrived in the US in 1969, sporting a 0.6-liter, two-cylinder engine that revved to a still-astounding 9,000 revolutions per minute. Honda originally brought a small handful to the US in order to gauge customer demand. Being an economy car, its original owner probably didn't realize it would become a small chunk of automotive history, and left it to languish over nearly half a century.
