1981 Honda Accord LX
First – let’s all write our friends at Honda and ask that this Hampstead Green color be returned to the lineup. It’s magnificent! Oh, and the car, from the final year of the first-generation Accord? 4600 miles. It doesn’t look like it’s ever been touched. It’s basically as new – though during our visit, Cunningham did fit a replacement plastic hood prop stay to the inner fender. Yes, that bit was new-old stock.
1966 Honda T360F and 1966 Honda T500
Quick – what was Honda’s first vehicle with four wheels? Nope, it wasn’t the S500. ‘Twas this truck, the T360 in May Blue – the only color ever offered, and only sold in Japan. 356cc twin-cam four, 30hp. Next to it, a T500, with a big 531cc engine and 38 horsepower, offered in some export markets (mostly Australia), and finished in Moss Green – again the only color ever offered.
Acura NSX – 1992 and 2001
Immediately to the right of the entrance to the shop – just beyond a lift where a race car sits – is a small open wash bay with just an electric motor and pump mounted to the wall. Oh, and a classic HONDA motorcycle shop sign (retrofitted with LEDs) right above. Peter takes a moment to finish washing this 1992 NSX finished in Grand Prix White. Only 27,000 miles, which seems a shame.
Back in the main Collection Hall sits a six-speed 2001 NSX in Monaco Blue. One of only three built in 2001 in that combination, Peter tells us – and this one has only 18,000 miles on the odometer.
