Honda 1300 Coupe Guestbook





Comments:
If this vehicle had been sold in The States, it's likely I'd have owned one, given what I'd owned 40 years ago: (1) a '73 Datsun 510 (Nissan 1600) 2-dr. sedan ("the poor man's Bimmer"); and (2) a '77 Honda Accord 2-dr. hatchback.

The close-up of the Honda 1300 Coupe's front looks as if the full-size Ford, e.g. grill, influenced it.

I sure like the 1300 Coupe's overall design

I owned a yellow 71 Coupe 7 from 76 to 79 while stationed in Korea. The previous owner imported it from Japan.

I loved the car & drove it all over South Korean on some very rough roads. I had problems with the clutch & had the fiber plates replaced locally, maybe the local craftsmen were the problem.

I eventually wore out the struts, but the engine always ran strong, making it fun to drive. I wish I could find one here in the US. If I ever get down your way I would like to see & drive one again

I now own the C9 Philip in 7 spoke of and would like to restore by replacing the 1300 Ballade motor with original motor and will appreciate someone to contact me with parts. I tried one fella in Oz who never contacted me back. Can anyone help?

I owned a 1300 Coupe from new after trading in my previous and much loved Honda N600.

The 1300 was an awesome car. I wish that somehow I had had the money to keep it as it is often, along with the 600,in my thoughts.

I used to own a coupe 9,sold it about 7 years ago for the Targa Tasmania.

I bought it in '98 , rebuilt including the cracks in the head I competed in the Newcastle hillclimb and got a fair time and best presented. I competed in the 2000 NSW hillclimb championship.

I still have a set of manuals and a couple of starter motors,alternators and a genuine oil filter available. I am open to offers.

Regards Jon Anderson

I recall a co worker owned this car and I had a Cortina 1600GT.

The 1300 Honda was incredible the engine was a dream so smooth and revvy

The ford felt like a truck engine when I drove it.

Well my past 3 cars recently all Hondas
Now a current Civic type R :

Love these cars.

I restored one in the mid 90's and found out it was a great engineering achievement as well as a great drivers car. Unfortunately I was young and sold it after doing some panel work with a Falcon.

I would love to own another one day so if anyone is thinking of selling I would love to hear from you

Hi there,
I am a collector of older cars and bought the 1971 Honda 1300 Coupe about a year ago as it was the first one I ever saw. Unfortunately the engine was replaced by a water cooled Honda Ballad engine. I do not know how this car came to South Africa as they were never sold locally.

Hi there,
Hi - nice site! I owned a yellow Coupe 7 in 1973-74 and did quite a few kms on it. Great car, but a pity about the fragile head. Mine cracked its head once while I had it and again later on. Lost track of the car about 1985. Mine looked unusual in that it had a series of horizontal black tape stripes on the C pillar. I mention this just in case a member knows anything about its history.
