This Honda Acty Kei Truck Is Owned by the Creator of the Hellcat Logo
Despite His Influence in All Go-Fast Vehicles at Dodge and SRT, the Current Jeep Designer Loves His Honda Acty Kei Truck
We’re going to go ahead and say it, Honda Acty Kei mini-trucks are downright adorable. As far as I know, there isn’t a single soul that could look at one and not want to take it home. Especially when they’re in such incredible shape like the one we’ve featured here.
The original story and photography behind this little Honda were published by the folks at Petrolicious, and this is only our take on it.
Adam Hubers is the man behind this tiny beauty. He’s a graduate of the The College for Creative Studies, where he attended after taking an auto body and paint repair program at his local college. After working for American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) for a year following his studies, he was hired by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). There, Hubers went on to assume the lead designer role in the record-breaking ACR Viper, and even masterminded the iconic (and badass) SRT Hellcat logo. You know, the really-mean-looking kitty?
Hubers stumbled upon the Acty Kei while looking for wheels for his 1981 Datsun 210 wagon, which he’s had for five years. The mini-truck sat in the showroom of a Columbus, Ohio shop that’s popular for importing JDM wheels, and it really caught his attention. After debating his “need” for the truck, he made the nearly four-hour drive to look at it, though he brought a trailer “just in case.”
The rest is history. The original story goes in-depth about the ins and outs of the Acty Kei, and Hubers shares his desire to install a GSXR 1000cc motorcycle engine in it given the current 55 mph top speed.
