Honda has been doing business in America for 60 years this year and to celebrate the milestone, the brand has released a video highlighting the restoration of the very first Honda to arrive in America, the 1967 Honda N600, serial number one.
Tim Mings was the one person truly suitable for the job. He’s the only full-time Honda 600 mechanic in the world.
Mings had the N600 in his possession for a few years before he noticed it was the very first Honda built for the U.S. market with the serial number 1000001.
The car was one of just fifty 1967 N600s that made their way over to the U.S. from Japan to test the market.
