When Chris Johnson sent us an email instructing us to click a link and see a car he described with language I can’t really use here, we knew that something interesting lurked on the other side of that click. Boy were we right! He car that you see above and below is a 1972 Honda Z600 which is a tiny little piece that in stock form looks like it needs a handle on the roof so you can pick it up and carry it around. The difference here is that it has had an engine swap, it has been tubbed, and there’s even a roll bar as part of the safety program as well.
Yes, the engine swap used a Chevette four banger, and it has the rear track width of an EZ-GO golf cart, but seriously you need this beast for Drag Week 2014. Enter the thing in Unlimited and then after the laughter subsides rip off a couple of 18-second laps to show all of your detractors up. If you really want to get after it, add the Subaru turbocharger setup that comes with the car. We have no idea how you adapt the manifold and other parts from a flat four engine to your inliner, but that’s your problem not ours. The rear axles could probably fit in a shoebox because they’ve got to be about a foot long at best so there’s plenty of room for spares in the copious hatchback style rear of the car. No doubt that the Chevette power plant will be snapping them like twigs. Be prepared!
We’d go on but the seller really preaches the gospel on this thing:
For sale is a 1972 Honda Z600. This is a tiny little car, 4 feet wide by 9 feet long. Originally came with a 2 cylinder 600cc motor. The car now has a 4 cylinder Chevette motor and 4 speed trans. I also have a subaru turbo to go with it. Would make an awesome Hot Rod or Rat Rod. The car has been tubbed and has a narrowed 9 inch ford rear. Tagged as PA antique vehicle. Real head turner, would be awesome with a v8 or rotary swap. Currently runs and drives, but needs some work. I have too many projects and don’t have time for it right now. Asking $3500.
