    Sorry guys, I should have put more info up, but didn't think there would have been much interest in it. Yes, it started life as a 40 Ford ute. The rear 1/4's were removed some years before I clapped eyes on it. Even after I first saw it, it took another couple of year to get it into my possession. Originally the price was $1500, which I deemed to be too much, so I walked away. However, I didn't forget about it, even buying parts at swap meets for it " just in case" I could get hold of it. So I eventually got it for $150! I nabbed the Jailbar cab from the same yard, for $50. The plan is to blend them together to make a fake US style pick up. You may have noticed that there is a shooting hatch on the LHS of the Jailbar cab, it's staying!
    The driveline is all budget, Holden 6, Toyota 5 speed, Holden diff, Torana front end, Hi Lux bench seat etc.
    All as I can afford to do it.
    Hammer smith, there is still old tin around, you just have to drive a bit further to find it and not be too fussy :-)

    Cheers

    It's hard to make out from the photos what you're doing. So it's a 5W coupe-ute that has had the tub removed and you're using the rear section of an earlier pick-up cab ('28?) to replace the cutaway rear section of the 5W?
    And I assume replacing the long gone tub with a tray?

    Depends where you look Hammersmith, country Victoria has quite alot of rusty gold just
    waiting to find a home.

    Looking pretty good, is there much in the way of early ford parts sitting in the grass like that over in OZ?
