25 Years of US Built Hondas

More anniversaries! Twenty-five years ago this day, the first Japanese branded car built on US soil rolled off the conveyor belts wearing the license plate “USA 001.” Although Honda had been cranking out motorcycles in America since 1979, that gray Accord Sedan was the first four-wheeler and one of just 968 produced in the remaining months of 1982 at Honda’s Marysville, Ohio plant.

Today, that same factory can churn forth 1,800 cars per day, or 440,000 Accords, Acura TLs, and Acura RDXs a year, and the original milestone Accord is displayed at the Henry Ford Museum near blue oval headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.
