The Honda Accord is celebrating 40 years of sales. Let's take a look back at its humble beginnings, and the path it forged to today.
Over the last four decades, Honda sold 12.7 million Accords.
The vast majority of these cars were produced in the US, as well.
The Accord's been named to Car and Driver's 10Best list 30 times, which is a record.
It's the number-two seller for buyers under 35 -- number one is the Civic.
Back when the Accord first went on sale, gas was 59 cents a gallon. Sounds nice.
The Accord was the first Japanese-manufacturer vehicle to be produced in the US.
The company started its manufacturing operations in Marysville, Ohio, in 1982, where the Accord is still produced today.
It's also been built in Alabama, Ontario and Jalisco, Mexico.
Overall, Honda's built nearly 11 million Accords in North America.
It also happens to be one of the best cars you can buy.
