1969 Mark 2 Honda s800. The mark 2 has disk brakes over the mark 1 which had drums. I am the third owner. The first two each had the car for 20 years. The first used it as his every day car, the second did a full body nut and bolt rebuild in the 90s and kept it in a heated garage and used it for warm weather pleasure only. I bought her with from the second owner with the engine in ious boxes following a cylinder head problem hed had 6 years earlier and left in store. I gave the car to an ex Aston Martin engineer in Newport Pagnell who had the head reset and did a full top and bottom end rebuild, replacing just about all moving parts on the way, at a cost of £3000. Since the rebuild the car has done 50 miles due to a change in my circumstances and now its time to give her to someone else to enjoy. Her condition inside and out is beautiful. But for a 2" paint lift on the wing she is about perfect and as solid as new. The engine is a treat to sit behind, more than 20 years ahead of its time. Its an aluminium block with twin overhead cams and 4 carbs on a needle roller crank baring that redlines at 11000 rpm. Twin straight through chrome tail pipes with no baffles. The performance is surprisingly rapid for a 791cc engine but it loves to rev and for one of the smallest cars it sounds like a full pack of angry Hells Angles. The shape is a blatant copy of European 1960s design. A passer by once described her to me as a DB5 back end and a Maserati front end that has been put on a hot wash. Its a tiny car but at 63" I have no problem getting comfortable in her and driving her about. Top Gear website names the s800 as the 23rd most desirable car ever for its geek engine and pretty looks. This is one of the best examples of very few out there in the UK.
