Pictures of Honda Accords from car shows, car museums and classic car auctions across the U.S.
The Honda Accord was introduced in 1976 as a compact hatchback, with styling similar to an upsized contemporary Honda Civic. A conventional four-door sedan was debuted in 1977.
Original plans for the Accord were to make it a mid-size car, along the lines of the Ford Mustang. The Accord was originally planned to be a V6-powered car with a long hood and sporty pretensions. Honda chose the name Accord, reflecting "Honda's desire for accord and harmony between people, society and the automobile." The initial design was changed to a fuel efficient, low emission vehicle since it was introduced during the fuel crises of the 1970s. In the United States and Japan, a version was produced using Honda's CVCC technology, meeting emission standards of the 1970s and 1980s without a catalytic converter.
Like the smaller Honda Civic, the Accord uses front-wheel drive and a transverse engine layout.
The Accord became the first Japanese car to be produced in the US in 1982, when production commenced in Marysville, Ohio at Marysville Auto Plant.
