In June 1963 in US media, Honda began the 12-year-long advertising campaign “You meet the nicest people on a Honda”, created by Grey Advertising. Grey had bought the idea from a UCLA undergraduate student, who had created the concept for a class assignment. The event marked the beginning of the decline of domestic and British motorcycle brands in the US market, and the rise of Honda and the other Japanese companies.

Honda’s First Production Automobile, The 30 hp Honda T360

The T360 was a pickup truck from Honda. Introduced in June 1963, it was Honda’s first production automobile, beating the S500 Sports by four months. The T360 used a 356 cc AK250E series DOHC inline-four engine also found in the Honda S360 roadster prototype, with which it also shared the chassis. The mid-mounted unit propelled the truck to a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph). The engine generated 30 hp (22 kW) at 8,500 rpm, reflecting Honda’s motorcycle heritage.

Aside from their core automobile and motorcycle businesses, Honda also manufactures garden equipment, marine engines, personal watercraft and power generators, amongst others.
