Racing at Bathurst, NSW, Australia - circa 1972
Manufacturing Statistics

Based on some investigations with Honda Japan, I have been able to get some manufacturing statistics on the Honda Coupe Series. Unfortunately, they were not able to give me much more as they claim the car is too old and stats are not available.

Also, I did get conflicting numbers from Honda Japan and from the Honda Collection Hall

Honda JapanHonda Collection Hall
Number Built:Coupe 7's35,80438,359
Coupe 9's7,8818,102
Coupe AT's1,788

Dates Built:
Honda Japan says December 1965 to May 1967 but I think these numbers are wrong as my own car is 1972.

Honda Collection Hall says Feb 6th, 1970 to June 2nd, 1972 which sounds better.

Export Numbers:
According to Honda Japan, only 1053 cars were exported from Japan.

In Australia, Ray Linden went to the ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) and looked up the Imported Vehicle records.
