Car description

This early Honda 600 sedan is the very definition of tiny: a 78-inch wheelbase, a 1,157-pound curb weight and a 36-cubic-inch twin-cylinder, air-cooled Honda motorcycle engine. You read right - 36 cubic inches (598 cubic centimeters), which is tiny even for a motorcycle!
The good news is that nearly all the hard-to-find bits and pieces are present and accounted for on this collectible Honda. What's more, the engine cranks with vigor, the odometer registers only 63,759 miles and the car has a clear Nebraska title.
Unusual features include the factory scissors jack and handle still clamped under the hood; two barely used Bridgestone snow tires, the rubber nice and pliable even after all these years; two of the original tools (lug wrench and spark plug socket) in an embossed Honda vinyl tool pouch; a gearshift lever (and unusual shifting pattern!) that attaches to the underside of the dashboard; and a spare-tire well under the trunk with a metal cover that pops open and downward so you can unload the spare tire directly onto the ground.
On the down side, the engine won't start and run until the car gets its gas tank (6.9 U.S. gallons!) flushed and its carburetor rebuilt. And this car hasn't escaped the rocker, floor and wheel-well rust typical of these early Honda cars. The right-side wheel well (the front passenger's kick panel) is especially bad. But the car is priced accordingly for a quick sale to someone who is either adept at making sheet-metal repairs or wants to learn how to become so.
LOCATION: 16 miles southwest of Lincoln, Neb., and 10 miles south of Interstate 80 from Exit 388, the Pleasant Dale/Crete interchange.
EXTRA SPORT RIMS ARE AVAILABLE: See my other auction for a set of '72 Honda sport rims.
NOTE ON RIMS/TIRES: The rims and tires shown on the car in the accompanying photos are -NOT- included in this sale. They are actually 10-inch trailer tires and belong to another Honda 600 that I am restoring. I placed them on this sedan so I could wheel it around in preparation for selling it. They will stay on the car for your convenience in loading it onto a transport trailer, at which time we will pop them off and install the factory rims and (flat) tires. Or ... you can buy your own set of these trailer tires at Harbor Freight and install them when you buy the car.
NOTE REGARDING THE WHITE WINDOWS: I applied liquid shoe polish to the insides of the side and back glass to prevent sun damage to the interior. It worked!
