The Honda Acty may be the most fun “work truck” you can put your hands on these days. The small stature makes is both amusing and practical around town. They also make awesome little farm trucks instead of a traditional side by side. This 1991 has been well maintained with only has 54K original miles. The exterior has been kept in surprisingly good shape considering it’s main purpose was to be a workhorse. The paint shows well and the body has been kept mostly ding free, however the paint is far from perfect as this was a work truck after all. There are naturally some blemishes to be found but nothing too severe. The bed is extremely versatile with the ability to lower the traditional tailgate or any combination of the three. So loading and unloading large objects can be done without breaking a sweat. Measuring in at 79″ x 52″ you’ve got ample room for cargo. To prevent things from sliding around and messing up the bed a rubber cargo mat was added.
The interior is utilitarian, yet surprisingly comfortable. The seats have been kept as clean as the rest of the truck and are free of any major rips. While amenities are sparse both of the option boxes were checked. Which means it was fitted with a radio/tape and a bed cargo light. Both of which are accounted for and functioning properly! Equipped with heat, the Acty was not offered with A/C rather a vent function. It blows cool which is nice for times when you have the windows up. The interior is surprisingly spacious and the COE design makes parking a breeze.
Powered by a thundering 660cc 3 cylinder (E07A) the Acty is more than capable around town. The motor fires right up and idles smoothly. The manual transmission engages quietly and with ease. The rev happy little motor pulls surprisingly well in every gear. Due to the nature of the Kei trucks it’s fantastic on gas mileage. This is perfect for those after something that turns heads but don’t want to sacrifice practicality to do so. Honda Acty: the definition of mini truck.
