1990 Nissan Homy Cruise
If you value a vehicle that is the ultimate utilitarian experience, a JDM van is the ideal platform. This 1990 Nissan Homy diesel definitely delivers luxurious appointments and a premium ride. The Nissan's two tone Gray/Gold (4K2) paint shines well; highlighting the long, slab sided, aesthetic of this people mover. The paint is in great shape and looks awesome, the color is definitely unique to fit the rest of the van's vibe. The body has been kept in above average condition with only a few minor dings and scuffs on the lower cladding from routine use, but overall the body is straight. Noted for its long lasting Turbo Diesel and rugged 4WD system, this Caravan stands at attention, ready to take you anywhere in the USA in comfort.
Since it is a van, the interior appointments were paramount in its design. The rich, soft cognac colored cloth interior has been well preserved over the years, free of any notable stains or tears. The front buckets are more than accommodating. Exceptionally bolstered, comfortable buckets are stationed in front of a huge glass windscreen, allowing for maximum visibility. Additional lighting comes from a front sunroof, which vents for better airflow. The last owners even had fitted an OEM sunroof cover that is removable to keep down cabin temperatures and preserve the cloth and carpet from sun damage. All of the creature comforts are powered such as the windows, cruise control, and driver's seat. All of which function as they should and add some comfort, opposed to traditional 1990's manually operated equipment that domestic vehicles have. Automatic climate controls are in the front with a separate switch to control the rear air, which does blow cold. A functional OEM head unit and speakers compliment the easy to reach, and large ergonomic buttons and dials. One of the coolest things about the Homy is the versatile seating options. The middle row is made up of two Captain's chairs that are adjustable forward, back, can be laid flat, or swivel 180 degrees. The rear 50/50 split bench seating will also lay flat or can be flipped up against the rear windows for added storage space. If you're looking for more storage and don't need the 3rd row you could pull the four 14mm bolts and with a little muscle take it out opening up 68" worth of usable space from the rear hatch to the back of the middle row. A massive, functional, rear panoramic sunroof competes the passenger experience. When not using the rear vented side windows, it rolls back fully allowing for a convertible sized opening. At night, the roof can be kept closed to create a view of the starts above. Colored curtains on metal tracks line the windows and can be closed manually to provide privacy if so desired or shade from the sun. Best of all is the optional rear remote control which can utilize and adjust the rear climate control and vehicle audio functions with a click of a button.
Making all the use of its 2663cc displacement Nissan's TD27 turbo diesel is easy to fall in love with. If you're into a long term relationships, that is a good thing, because this diesel only has 31K verified miles so its just getting broken in. Known for its copious amounts of torque and low noise levels, the little four cylinder fires to life with the familiar diesel clatter. Placed between the drive axles, this mid-mounted design lends itself to better handling characteristics than you might expect. The transmission shifts smoothly, and sends power to the drive wheels without any clunks or hesitations. The suspension handles large potholes well, and the brakes do a decent job of slowing the van down. Grip comes from four new all season tires, mounted and balanced by one of our trained technicians. A suite of mirrors alleviate blind spots (even when parking) and the cab over design gives a better than average command of the road. The road ways are kept better illuminated by oversize headlights and distinct looking Japanese market amber fogs. A new oil and filter service has been completed, ensuring no maintenance needs for another three thousand miles, and the vehicle has completed its Virginia state safety inspection.
Our Homy would make an ideal family hauler or marketing vehicle. Passenger comfort is second to none in these family transporters, and the low cost of ownership, and all-weather capabilities make this an all purpose workhorse. Drive away, in your turn-key Japanese people mover today!
