The T360 was a tiny pickup truck from Honda. Introduced in June 1963, it was Honda's first production automobile.

The T360 used a small 356 cc straight-4 engine. This engine generated 30 hp (22 kW) at 8500 rpm, reflecting Honda's motorcycle heritage. 108,920 T360s were produced from 1963 through 1967.

The similar T500 used a 38 hp (28 kW) 531 cc version of the engine, exempting it from the Kei car class. 10,226 T500s were built from 1964 through 1967.

The T360 was produced as a conventional rear wheel drive pickup truck, a flatbed (the T360F), flatbed with folding sides (the T360H), and as a covered van (the T360V).
