    I used the rear quarter windows stood on end and swapped sides then trimmed length for the small side windows. The back window is composed of the top of the rear door window frames trimmed and spliced in the middle so i can use flat glass.
    Painted it last year.

    Here's a friends restored 35 Master Chevy coupe utility
    upload_2018-12-17_9-18-53.png

    Utes were available in both 'Standard' and 'Master' and offered two (2) types of doors. The cheaper option had doors with quarter windows but no wind-up window glass and clip-on side curtains instead; designated as a “half-door” utility. The dearer option was a “full-door” utility with wind-up windows.

  12. If it helps any, that ad looks like it came from the R.A.A. (Royal Automobile Association) magazine.
    The RAA and also the company that sold the cars (Maughan Thiem -pronounced Morn-teem) are both still going strong here.

    Just found this rare bird. 33 ford UTE, it has been rodded with some slight modification to rear of bed but way cool find. Obviously converted back to LHD. Anyone seen or know the story behind it? Was bought from an estate in California
