The L700 was a commercial station wagon from Honda. Produced only in 1965, it shared the S600 roadster's mechanicals and used an enlarged version of that car's high-tech straight-4 engine. At 687 cc, the DOHC engine produced 52 hp (39 kW) with twin side-draft carburettors.
The L700 was designed for commercial deliveries and was referred to by Honda as a light van, but it appeared as a conventional station wagon. Two models were built — the basic LA700 and better-equipped LM700. A third version, called the Honda P700 was a small pick-up truck version, with an exposed load bay and a standard cab situated behind the engine, using the same chassis as the L700 (front engine, rear drive).
The L700 was replaced in 1966 by the L800. Basically an L700 with a 58 hp (43 kW) 791 cc engine, the L800 was introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1965. The engine came from the S800 roadster but used a single side-draft carburettor. It was available in LA and LM trim levels like the L700, and 20,044 were produced through 1967. The "L" prefix is a naming reference to lorry, a European term used for commercial delivery vehicles.
