1965 Honda S600: Rat-Ready


These Honda S600s always seem to be completely restored or completely taken apart. I’d say that’s due to the fact that finding parts for these cars is so difficult that it pays to keep up with the maintenance, or for the same reason, the car falls increasingly into disrepair. I don’t know what happened to this 1965 example Barn Finds reader Jim S found on eBay, but it definitely falls into the latter category. The interior is a mess, the body is rusty, and the motor and transmission are long-gone. Of course, if anyone has watched a recent episode of Jay Leno’s Garage where a guest swapped in a high-strung motorcycle engine, you might see this as a project with some serious potential as a rat-rod. What would you do?

    Yup a noncompetitive dwarf race car, narrowed with a cool body stuck on it. I have a berkeley body and dwarf stalled project. In my imagination it is awesome.

    I thought you were suggesting the installation of a RAT motor. Now then we would be talking. Did I hear anyone say 572?

    Perfect for a blown big block ala Big Daddy Roth! Reserve not met at $250. It looks like it recently had $1,200 on the windshield.

    How about something like a Hayabusa engine? Those are supposed to make great torque and horsepower in a small package.
