Hi there. I'm a new member to this forum.
Just managed to get hold of this 1974 Honda N600.
I have been into Honda cars for years, but this is my first step into the nostalgic era.
The car is sold new here in Norway, and has only 66.000 km (40.000 miles) on it, given the speedo hasn't been tampered with.
According to the previous owner it has not been a daily driver since 1984.
I checked with the registry and the plates was taken off the car in 1988.
It has been sitting in a barn up till last year when the previous owner bought it as a project car. He ended up not finding time for the car due to other projects, so he put it up for sale.
I have not been able to go through the car all that much yet, but It seems to be in good shape.
Fuel system is clogged, and the previous owner also managed to loose a few jets in the carb in an effort to try and clean it.
So it is a no-runner at present.
Other than that it seems to be fairly complete.
Interior is very good! (So I can sort of believe in the low milage)
The exterior is a bit tired.
Paint is extremely flat, and there is a few dings here and there.
There has been some surface rust around the car, but this has been treated with a chemical rust sealer at some point.
But at first impression the body appears to be quite solid.
The plan is a full restoration.
However it will probably take a little time before I can make some solid progress, as I'm in the process of finishing my garage, making workbenches, shelves etc. etc.
So bear with me...
Once this is done I will update more regularily.
Well, enough of all this boring text...
On with the pics:
