5k: Monster & Mini: 1972 Honda N600 4X4

 Launched in 1970, the N600 was the first Honda to ever be officially imported to the USA.  It was Kei car in size, but it used a larger watercooled engine that gave it slightly better performance than you might expect from its outward appearance. The only thing Honda didn’t do was create a 4X4 offroad version, which the builder of today’s example has been nice enough to do for us.  Find this 1972 Honda N600 4X4 offered for $7,500 in Rocklin, CA.

Unfortunately, very little of the plucky N600 remains under the Honda skin — it uses a Suzuki Samurai suspension and GM 2.8 liter V6.  Who knows if it is competent in the dirt, but it should be good for plenty of laughs and smiles.
