1990 Honda Acty Street 4WD
This 1990 Honda Street Acty is the true definition of what a little, utilitarian van should be. Its capable 4wd, great fuel economy, and fun demeanor make it a blast to drive and own.
At only 127" long and 55" wide this compact cargo carrier can squeeze just about anywhere. The van shows incredibly well considering it's purpose in life is to be a functional hauler. All of the outer panels line up great and are free of any large dents or dings. The paint shines nicely and was freshened at some point with the factory Light Blue Metallic. Some neat little OEM accessories were added in Japan. These include some tiny mudflaps, with white Honda lettering, to protect the lower body work against mud and gravel. A small Honda chrome running board has been added to the passenger side, so heavier goods can be lifted easily past the sliding door. Also of note are the OEM raingards, which have remained atop the doors, aiding the occupants with some additional airflow if needed in inclement weather.
Since the Acty was primarily designed for functionality the interior is where it really shines. Loading and unloading is exceptionally easy. With the full rear hatch opening completely parallel with the roof loading up cargo is a breeze. And with two full size sliding side doors passengers can easily scoot in and out. The seat material is in better than average shape, and offer some nifty storage options. The same can be said for the door cards, which are color matched and in good condition, along with durable carpeting. Up front, the driver and passenger experience great visibility thanks to the cab over axle design. Two cup holders have been added to aid with usability, as well as additional 12v charging ports located on the dash. The speakers function well, and are wired to a newer Pioneer Carrozzeria head unit with USB and AUX capabilities. Adjacent to the radio sits a manual climate control system, which includes functional A/C and heat. Behind the front passengers the Acty has lots to offer. For those times when you don't need the back seats they can be folded completely flat giving you 6' of usable space. Unlike most traditional vans the sliding doors actually do have roll down windows to aid rear passenger air circulation. The rear cargo area has the normal scuffs and scratches you expect for a 25 year old light duty hauler and features an interior floor panel by the rear axle allows for easy access to service the engine.
Part of what makes the Kei trucks so practical is the fact that the E07A 656cc 3 cylinder is mounted below the rear cargo deck. The mighty, twelve valve, 3 cylinder has the ability to pull 50mpg and still get you down the highway. Plus with the Realtime 4WD system you have the reassurance of being able to get out of any sticky situations. Our expert technicians, who inspect and maintain all of our vehicles, have mounted and balanced four new tires. The Street fires right up and idles smoothly. With only 68k verfied miles, this revvy little mill is barely broken in. The clutch engages cleanly and shifts smoothly through the 5 speed manual. The 5 speed being the real key as it aids tremendously with highways speeds. The brakes are very quick to react to inputs meaning the featherweight van stops on a dime. With such a small turn radius, the unassisted yet light steering is wonderful in the city. The factory suspension is well sorted and handles bumps without feeling unstable. The OEM 12 inch wheels have been upgraded to chrome Abe Shokai alloys, giving the car a bit more curb appeal. Whether its grocery shopping, light duty off road adventures, or for marketing purposes, these Acty's are the perfect turn-key classic Japanese micro- van!
