A B11 Honeybee????

Hey everyone,

Just for the heck of it, I did quick google search using the words "Nissan E16 race" for the search. The first link you come up with is: Nissan Sentra - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

OK, I start reading and I get to this quote from the history of the B11:

"There were several models of the B11 ranging from the Honeybee a holdover from the 210 that got 35 mpg, or the Deluxe that had A/C, Clarion tape deck and dual side mirrors".

Has anyone ever seen a B11 Sentra Honeybee?

Mike

I barely remember back in the day my dad had a datsun honeybee, but I thought those were discontinued shortly after that model.

Yes, the yellow or white Honeybees used to be quite a common sight on the roads in the US back in the late 70's and '80's but were based on the '76 to '78 B210 cars . But I have never seen a B11 Honeybee. I'd like to hear it confirmed either way by someone that they existed or didn't. I worked at a Datsun/Nissan dealer all through the B11 years and I have never seen one.

that's gotta be a mistake.

F10-310-B11/N12

unless the F10 was a honeybee... all the rest were sunnies or cherries, IIRC.

my mom owned an old Honey Bee. it was yellow and had a decal of a bee on the front fenders. was a cool car as far as i can remember. my mom had just gotten out of the army and bought it new for a couple thousand dollars. we drove all over the country in that thing. i think hers was a hatch although i could be mistaken...

found this pic on google.



<--- something like that

there was one on sale on ebay...

yah. that was the old B210...

the controversy is over the existence of an F10, (F)310, or B11 honeybee...

Really? Well that's pretty cool. I hope to be able to actually view a picture of one some time. Do you remember what the graphics looked like? Did Nissan use the same bee and stripes? Were the cars you saw white or yellow?

I personally met a guy who owned one and he said it was red, he also said that the rear windows opened with a center console in between the two front seats, and had a tach on the cluster. I don't remember any other details

That is very interesting indeed. I owned an '84 B11 hatchback that had the center console levers for the remote rear side pop out windows. I also owned an '85 B11 deluxe wagon that had them too.

Well now that someone has actually seen a B11 Honeybee, my next project is to see if anyone can come up with a picture of one. For some added incentive, how about I offer a bounty?

If anyone can post a link to a picture of a B11 Sentra Honeybee, I will send them a complimentary very nicely edited ice racing and rally dvd.

I remember when Jesse James put that VQ35DE in that B210 HoneyBee. That was badass! Anyways I think I remember seein an old B11 Honeybee out in the middle of nowhere at a bible camp in SC. I dont remember but I think they exist.
