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).

L800

he 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.
