Honda 1300 Coupe Guestbook





Comments:
A beautiful little runner. In my early 70's Silver Honda C9 coupe 1300 was bought and driven in Japan where I was stationed with a naval air squadron.

For an American, I was suprised at how easily I adapted to shifting with my right hand, more natural for a right hander like myself than I would have thought.

I remember screaming along with the windows down and the little chain driven engine giving me that sultry whine. Thank you for the website. Cheers, David

I owned a 1300 Coupe 9 from 1972 to September 13 1973 in Kalgoorlie WA. It was wrecked by a collision with an out of control Holden at Burbanks south of Coolgardie.

I loved that car and wish I could own another. Definitely the most amazing car to drive, a high speed tourer capable of 90 mph cruising even on hot days.

Hi all. Great website. Brings back many memories of cruising with my father in the early 80's. We had an orange 9 with a sunroof. Was the craziest little car. Unfortunately he passed away when I was 12 and due to not having a license my mother had to sell it. The gentleman that bought got sand put in the oil for being a fool. Sad day.

Anyway cheers for the trip down memory road

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
