Restoration of the First Honda Vehicle in America
Since March, Honda has been taking viewers through the process of the restoration of the very first Honda automobile in America. The N600 was the first Honda model introduced to the States. But, not only is this vehicle the very first model, it is the very first automobile. It is the Honda with the Vehicle Identification Number 1000001, named “Serial One.” We told you about the first Honda car in America back in March, but now the journey has continued and the “Serial One” has been fully restored and revealed.
Honda N600 Vehicle
In the 1960’s, Honda embarked on a mission to change the idea of what “car” symbolized. At that time in the U.S., automobiles were heavy, large, and inefficient. Honda released the N600, changing the perception of what a car could be. It was about three feet shorter than most vehicles on the road in America at that time and weighed nearly half of most automobiles. It was a simple, efficient, and artfully designed piece of machinery.
