My love for the Honda 9 Coupe has not waned.

And here's one on Gumtree.


The very last true Honda designed by Mr Honda before his death.


is a fine example of a 47 year old low mileage car not a restored one. It has been driven regularly on club rego and has taken part very successfully in a few track days.

I drove it this week on a 350klm run that was not only great fun but fault free. The car now has 76,900 miles on the clock.

The engine is an alloy, air cooled overhead cam configuration with a dry sump and 4 carburettors.

This gem produces 116bhp from 1300cc.

Free revving to its 9000rpm maximum, a leader in performance in the 70"s.

Chassis is all independent suspension with disc fronts and finned drum rear brakes.

As shown by the pics this car has been lightly modified with adjustable coil over uprated front shocks with custom top mountings.

Rear suspension has been modified with uprated shocks,negative camber adding up to race kart type handling.

Brakes have been upgraded to competition specification.

Car will be sold with all parts to return it to its original specification.

Costing the same as a Fairlane in 1971 Australia only imported around one hundred of these Hondas and they are fast becoming very sort after by collectors world wide.

I can assist in world wide shipping and also offer a video walk round if required.

Gosh! Here's another one and one fifth of the price.

This is a rare Honda 1300 coupe 9S. Genuine 9S with the four carb motor, correct "6xx" engine number and 9 series door trims. Body is generally rust free other than some light surface rust from sitting around. Very few still exist with solid bodies. All the parts are there including good glass etc. There are no more cheap 9S coupes - anything decent in Japan is A$20K+ now unlike 10 years ago. This is running and driving but requires a restoration. Great classic car and hard to find. only one on gumtree same colour and not the 9S for $25k. Located Kilmore East.
