    My dad bought his in '57 for $65. Had to put a clutch and radiator on it and she was good to go. Has owned the car for all this time. Mainly has sat in a garage since 1967. Today we are working to finish the 41 project. Can't wait to get it back out on the road. Luckily found many NOS parts for the restoration.

  8. Jimmy - those Utes are super cool looking, a shame they did not offer in the USA.
    Are you planning a stock or customized version

  10. At least there are a few there now.

    The '41 ute were built from 4 doors. The Army confiscated a shipment during ww2 and had the Australian Ford factory convert them to utes for military use that is why the roof looks funny it was a rush job.
    A photoshop of what I intend to build.

    Found this one up north.
    It had been sitting since 1963.
    Within 3 months of getting it home, we were running around the
    city under the coupes own power from it's 89,000 mile Flathead V8.

    A little bit of metal bumping and some grey primer helped make it look more respectable

    My 1941 Ford pickup and myself in 1971 when I was 12 in Rogue River, OR....I still have it, ....major project now in my garage, but it has a lot of memories for me. My grandfather gave it to me to 'work on myself' till I was 16 and could get a drivers license....and then helped me get it ''properly'' driveable for high school. He was a fantastic ''old school'' mechanic, and I learned a lot from him! I drove that 41' Ford to my prom (with a date)...my track meets, and my part time jobs hauling trash in it, and delivering papers early in the morning (6 volt woes abounding), and the regular winter struggles to get it started 001.jpg ....but, I love my old truck, and look forward to getting it back on the road again within' the next year or two! --- Ray

    Our 1941 Fordolete. 350/350 Chevy, Camaro rear and subframe. Traded a piece of crap '49 Ford even up for it. Really didn't want the '41 Ford, hated the interior and color. But hated Pinky even more! Surprisingly it's been a nice dependable driver since early 2000's.
    Stock gauges didn't work so made a custom dash with later guages.
