    My Small Runner - Life N360

    Here are the pics of my 2 (two) small cars, i.e., in my country (Indonesia) is known as Honda "Life". Each of them has a 360cc 2 cyl 4-stroke engine.










    Please say hello to them ....

    A couple of rare and unusual cars, great to see them on here.

    If I understand correctly these came just after the N360/N600.

    Are they air or water cooled?

    Would be interesting to see some engine pics as I have an N600 and a Z600 and it would be interesting to see the layout differences.

    Here's a picture of the water-cooled drivetrain layout ( from a Z360 judging from the steering wheel, aircleaner & twin carburetors), so obviously significantly different to the air-cooled cars, the steering rack also relocated from high on the firewall to a separate little subframe like the Civic.

    compared to the air-cooled:


    I like that metallic lime-golden colour. A friend of mine is (hopefully still) working on one too.

    edit: I had found these beautiful Life pictures previously also, including a wood-trimmed life dash misplaced in their Z photos.

    you are right, the previous model is called N-360 only, featuring 2-door minisedan with its air-cooled engine. The "Life" has water-cooled engine. Surprisingly, the engine type used for Life is also used for a famous Honda Genset EX-5500.

    Ok, as these cars I park in a house that has been full of non-automotive classic things so please be patient to see the engine pics.

    thanks for your interests, anyway
