1968 HONDA S800 ROAD­STER

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

$29,000 SHANNONS, LOT 20

THESE EARLY sporty Hon­das pop up once in a blue moon. They are about as heavy as a pa­per clip and not much big­ger. The pow­er­train fea­tures many lessons learnt from Honda’s mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing. The en­gine has an al­loy block and head, twin over­head cams and is fu­elled by four tiny car­bu­ret­tors. The cur­rent owner has had it for 37 years. With 73,968 miles show­ing it has been dwelling in a garage since 1994. It is an orig­i­nal and un­mo­lested ex­am­ple of a rare, pi­o­neer­ing Honda sportscar.
