Honda is celebrating its 60th Anniversary in America. In the beginning, to get the product out to the various locations in Southern California, a fleet of Chevrolet half-ton pickups was purchased as they were big enough to load two bikes in the back. The trucks were painted white with a bold red stripe and a new company logo. American Honda Motor Co., Inc.’s new brand of motorcycle quickly became a familiar sight on the burgeoning U.S. freeways. Celebrating their anniversary this year, Honda restored a 1961 Chevy pickup and a pair of original 1965 Honda motorcycles that are now ready to tour America, including an appearance at the 2019 SEMA Show, and eventually, will take its place in the American Honda Collection Hall in Torrance, California.
While the company’s roots started in Japan, Honda now builds more than 4 million cars, motorcycles, power equipment, and Powersports products every year in their 12 factories across America. There are also Honda dealerships found in every state. Overall, the company employs more than 31,000 associates in development, sales, manufacturing, and servicing its products.
