Production of the S 800 ended in May 1970 with 11,536 S 800s produced.
After a January 1970 facelift the N 360 became the LN III 360, with a new non-reflective dash, bigger turn signals, and the same new front for the sedan and the van.
N 360 III – facelift in January
The two-door Honda Z debuted in October. It features an air-cooled, 354 cc, 2-cylinder SOHC engine with a 4- or 5-speed transmission driving the front wheels. Outputs are 31 hp at 8500 rpm the Act and Pro versions, and 36 hp at 9000 rpm for the sportier TS and GS models. The 598 cc model is designated for export. The Z has coil sprung, independent front suspension and leaf springs on a beam axle rear suspension. The interior accommodates two adults, with a very small rear seat. A rear glass hatch with a black plastic surround opens to a shallow cargo area. Below the cargo area a compartment, accessible via a lid beneath the number plate, holds the spare wheel and tools.
The two-door coupé bodystyle, with a longer and sportier looking front end, was added to the lineup in February 1970. The same two engines (95 and 110 PS) were on offer, marketed as the Coupé 7 and the Coupé 9.
