1972

Honda VAMOS

 
Blue/Green with Red vinyl interior, Removable canvas top, Mid-engine air-cooled 350cc twin cylinder engine, 4-speed manual gearbox, production of 2500. During the 1970s light, rugged utility cars were popular with the public in Europe. Such vehicles included the Volkswagen Thing, the Citroën Méhari, the Mini Moke, and this model. Manufacturers seemed to have similar ideas for these cars: take an existing model, strip it down to its most basic components, and market it as “rugged” and “fun”. The instruments and switches are sealed for dust and water due to the open-cab configuration, and the folding top allows for a variety of cargo-carrying options.
