Honda Z600 Coupe

The two-door Honda Z debuted in October 1970 and was marketed until 1973 in most countries. The Z600 model's 598 cc SOHC engine was rated at 36 PS (26 kW; 36 hp). The Z featured coil sprung and independent front suspension and leaf springs on a live beam axle rear suspension. The interior accommodated two adults, with a very small rear seat.[citation needed] A rear glass hatch with a black plastic surround opened to a shallow cargo area. Below the cargo area a compartment, accessible via a lid beneath the number plate, held the spare wheel and tools.

In Europe only the Z600 was marketed, as the N360 had been considered underpowered. 918 cars were sold in Europe, most of them in France and Switzerland. Production ended in 1974, after the new Civic had arrived and the Oil Crisis had diminished the market for "fun" cars.

This cute and quirky Z600 Coupe from 1974 is finished in factory Pop Orange wiith only 17.372 km. This Honda was new delivered in France and imported to the Netherlands in 1976. It had only two owner. Original Dutch registration document is with the car. The car got a restauration by the owner (Honda dealer) in early nineteens. The car didn’t drive for the last 20 years.
