I love to see rods with the steering wheel on the wrong side, I mean RIGHT side. Sorry a little joke there.....nice cars everybody!
Love the Utes... Would love to see more. How far back did they make these????
Utes are short for coupe utility and were first made in 1934 and was designed by Lewis Bandt after a letter was sent to the Geelong ford plant in Australia by a farmers wife whod had enough of riding to church in the farm truck and arriving in saturated clothing.
She asked 'Why dont you build people like us a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday, and which can carry our pigs to market on Mondays?
Born out of a womans frustration with car designs of the day, the enclosed cab utility was initially regarded as a luxury. But the `ute was quickly accepted as a necessity of bush life, and won recognition around the world as the ideal farmers or tradesmans vehicle.
Thanks so much for the insite, that's really cool. I'm building my version of a 26 model T. check out my album. It's going to be chopped 5 ins. yet and I'm going to make a tailgate. Mostly for looks.
Just checked it out......Looks cool and with a tailgate you will have a lot of people guessing..
Here's a few I've spotted recently at meets in my area...
There we go then.....
Here's a pic of my original 32!
