The second design in the "decals that never existed but I wanted to have one so I made it from scratch" series.

In 1963, Mr. Honda proposed that his company should enter Grand Prix auto racing, despite only building passenger cars for only 1 year. By 1964, Honda entered it's first GP with a driver from Glendale California named Ronnie Bucknum. In 1965, learning quickly, the new chassis with a transverse 1.5 liter V12 was competitive, and a second car driven by veteran Richie Ginther dominated the field at the high altitude track in Mexico, easily scoring the first victory for Honda, but also the first of many wins for Goodyear as a tire supplier in Formula One.
