VIDEO: How Honda was making some of the world’s most precise machines in 1967

Though Honda was still in its infancy in 1967, it was already conducting some of the world’s most precise engineering. A video tour of the company’s Wako R&D facility and various plants is a fascinating glimpse into Honda’s operations at the time. Engineers in crisp, white labcoats perform countless tests, automated tools churn out part after part, and quality control technicians run then-new S800s on the “Test-O-Matic.”

Cars, motorcycles, and generators come to life in what were then brand new factories, the definition of modern and clean. The 30-minute visit is like a trip back in time, and though it’s still decades before Honda’s glory days, you can see how they were well on their way.

Thanks to Martin K. for the tip.
