Of course, restoring an old rust bucket back to its former glory is another process entirely, and it’s a process that takes a great amount of knowledge, hard work, and uncompromising dedication. Fortunately, those are all qualities found in Tim Mings, who works full time restoring some of Honda’s oldest vehicles!
When Mings acquired two 1967 Honda N600s, the seller didn’t know exactly what they had—and neither did Mings, at the time. At a glance, you could only tell that they were two of Honda’s original cars. After working on one of them for two or three years, though, Mings scraped away some grime to find that he had something truly special: a 1967 Honda N600 with VIN 1000001.
The restoration process was excruciatingly long and strenuous, but the dedication of Mings and his team effectively led to the preservation of a huge component not only of Honda’s history, but of automotive history in the United States as a whole.
Honda chronicled the process with a web series, culminating in Serial One’s reveal at the Japanese Classic Car Show in Long Beach, California. Of course, calling this 1967 N600 a “classic” feels like a bit of an understatement when you get a look at it in its fully restored glory!
