Honda boasts one of the most recognizable names in the automotive industry, but it didn’t get there by resting on its laurels. In the 1960s, it revealed its first mass-market model, the S600 Roadster, and from there, the Japanese brand continued to expand into the multinational conglomerate that we know today. While it’s become increasingly hard to come by one of these immaculate models, one’s just popped up for sale on Bring A Trailer.
The 1964 Honda S600 Roadster you see here is an impeccably-kept example from the car’s first year of production. Boasting a sought-after right-hand-drive orientation and an aesthetically-pleasing black vinyl interior, this unique model is truly a glimpse into the manufacturer’s iconic past. On its exterior, buyers will find a black soft top, luggage rack, and period-correct parking lights, complementing the car’s retro grille, bumpers, and mirrors. The S600 is powered by a 606cc inline-four engine and features a four-speed manual gearbox for those true enthusiasts, allowing them to kick back the car’s black vinyl top and enjoy their favorite driving roads. In 2020, the roadster was admitted to Coachwerks Restoration of Victoria, British Columbia, for an extensive refurbishment of its brake systems. Now, you’ll be able to acquire the vintage import (without reserve) via Bring A Trailer — that is if you can beat the current bid of $16,500.
