This little Honda could have well been the grand-daddy of all micro-cars in Malaysia. Produced between the year 1967 to 1970, the N360 was tiny and tinny. Also known as “LIFE”, it was for all intents a motorcycle with 4 wheels — I called it a Motorcycar. Its 354cc air-cooled engine came from the CB450 motorbike !
I never had an opportunity to drive one (too young and too poor at that time), but a neighbour of mine had a ‘many-times-preloved’ specimen sometime in the mid 70s. To me, it looked pretty flimsy. Some folks said if you scratched the body panel, Milo powder would spill out. With some imagination, the noise from its engine as the car passed by did sound like someone stirring Milo drink in a “koleh”. LOL.
Notwithstanding, Honda powered on from strength to strength, to be a giant today in the auto world.
