Honda Z - 1st Generation (1970-72)

Honda Z is a two-door hatchback microcar automobile made by the Honda Motor CompanyPowered by a 2-cylinder SOHC engine with a 4- or 5-speed transmission driving the front wheels. Marketed as the "sport coupé" version of the N600 "sedan". For some markets the vehicle was called the "Z" followed by the size of the engine (ie: Z600). Also called Honda 600 Coupe or Honda AZ600. First generation Honda Zs were produced from 1970 until 1972. 

Depends on the market, the engine size varied from a 354 cc (22 cu in) (Z360), to a 598 cc (36 cu in) (Z600). US only sold the Z600 model with the larger 600 cc engine which was rated at 36 PS (26 kW; 36 hp). The car featured an opening rear glass hatch surrounded by a thick black plastic surround, leading to nicknames such as "TV-set" and "swimming goggles". Total production was 40,586 units. (wikipedia)
