5k: AWD, Mid-Engine, 5-spd: 1995 Honda Acty Mini Truck

 Another day, another mini-truck on these pages, with the same likelihood that you can register it for street use as that 2×4 go kart you built in your garage.  The second generation Honda Acty (short of activity) was released in 1988 and was sold as Honda’s main Kei-truck offering through 1999.  With a mid-engine setup and all-wheel-drive it is basically the a Japanese version of a Lamborghini Gallardo.   Find this 1995 Honda Acty Mini Truck offered here on eBay for $6,850 buy-it-now, located in Daly City, CA.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The Acty is another late model kei-car where the legality is questionable, but the price is low enough that you might be willing to take chance. Wait…are you a fed?  Is the seller a fed?  What’s up with all the questions, man?

Somewhere under the back is a 656 cc E07A SOHC inline-3 cylinder engine pumping out a blistering 38 horsepower and 40 ft-lbs of torque.  The seller claims that it comfortably cruises at 60mph on the freeway, but my guess is that only folks with backgrounds in circus performance will find the wide-open-throttle to maintain 60mph remotely comfortable.

Check out that tachometer.  And by tachometer, I am refering to the marks on the speedometer that tell you roughly what gear you should be in given the speed.  Note that it gives up after 3rd gear because you probably will never exceed 70 km/h.
