HONDA N360/N600

2-door 4-seater saloon.

Tiny, frantic Japanese mini-car selling here against minis. Almost mini-sized, but without same refinement. Thrashy air-cooled vertical twin-engine, and non0synchro gearbox driving front wheels, but leaf-sprung dead axle rear end and drum brakes. Poor ride and cramped interior but surprisingly rapid - 72mph from only 354cc. Good fuel consumption (40mpg plus), but little charm except for extreme parkability. No N360s after mid-'70, and last N600s sold in '74 after model had been discontinued in Japan.
