Well i finally tracked down a ute i was happy with.

1 owner been in a shed for 45 years so im told.
was blue and was re painted red 47 years ago supposedlly.

No rust anywhere in the car he filled it with an oily waxy stuff around the tray and fuel tank. all inner outer sills are excellent, spare wheel door and hinge are excellent,
has a heap of parts he collected. he has pulled it from the shed in the last 3 months and had brakes re sleeved in S/S and has fitted new exhaust,
Car is ready for rego grille chrome is tatty.
Scratch plates are original in good nick and he chopped the rear venetian for unknown reasons.

A friend went and checked it out in Mackay for me as i couldnt get there

So she is all packed waiting for transport.
He removed hubcaps and anything that could be taken or fall off.

Good score Pete,
 
It must not have gone fast enough when it was blue.

So red must have been the cheapest way to go.    Smiley

Plans are (as its a company vehicle Grin )

To make sure its roadworthy and my mate that does all the 50,s looking signage is going to do a cool looking logo for the doors ect.


Ill see what its like when it gets here i may lower it a bit but dont plan on cutting it up or anything drastic..

Looks good mate, a nice ute to drive to Mt Thorley in each day Grin Maybe just keep it at work as the roads from your place through to work are the worst in the country at the moment.

A nice sign of:

Malleby Sheetmetal
Est 1957



in the traditional handwritting (Blue writing on the Red doors) would look great and some nice wheels.
That would keep it as your work truck.
 Cool

I'm sorry for the spelling and now I look at it the number may need to be changed as well.. OW well the things we do when we are in a hurry whilst trying to look busy at work. HAHAHA.
We have plenty of stickers with Mallaby Sheetmetal on them around our two washery's and I'm sure there will be more in the future as well. Roll Eyes
