First? There were Honda convertibles here in the mid-60's.

60th anniversary of Honda in USA is 1959. Not sure when this was made.

Very cool. Those cars sounded pretty good and were not that quiet. They did not sound like a motorcycle.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

An amazing story. I remember a local Honda motorcycle dealership had one on those. The owner of the shop was an elderly lady and this was the first Honda car I had ever seen. I wouldn't doubt it was one of the first few ever imported to the United States.

The S600 was never officially imported/exported to the United States for retail sale.
