Thats one cool looking ute.

You have added some nice touches. I like the little blinkers under the headlights, the clear side lenses, windscreen washers, sway bars and whats with the rear wheel arches, they look a bit biiiiig.........

what type of engine/gear box are you using...

keep us updated...

Healty 12
Have given the "Commercial" guys a couple of days start on what is different. Before I start, the ute looks great or should I call it a pick up.
My opinion is it is a 1000 with the lowlight nose fitted One pirce screen.
Seats look great also.
Several years ago we had a Woody on one of our outback trips with the Morris Minor Touring Club Australia Inc. that was originaly a series 11, and it had a one piece screen fitted. will try to attach a photo of a Woody from the Victorian Club, with a low light front.
Tis good to see Morry enthusiasts from all over the planet joining with us on this forum and sharing thoughts and ideas about our great little vehicles As we say down here - "Keep on Morrying"

Healthy 12
Sorry about the misspelling of your name, will have another attempt at putting the low light woody up on the site.

Third time lucky....its heathy! Im not bothered so dont worry!
Got the link to work, they look a nice pair of low lights. Bit of a different look having a lowlight isn't it! Certainly turns heads, thats for sure.
My Pickup is built around a two door saloon-its got the entire
floorpan with a ladder chassis on the back that the pickup areas
located. Why you ask. You get LOADS of extra room in the cab
compaired with a 4door, Van or UTE. This makes it a much more comfortable versatile ute.
Seats are from a mk1 Escort escort.
Engine and running gear are from a 1600 For escort Mexico.
RS2000rear axle, sierra discs up front, escort servo....
The shells a 1957 shell and the fronts from a 1949 car, rear
ends from a 1960 pickup. The rear wings have been fabricated to mirror a travelar rear wing crossed with a pickup/van arch. Very Happy
Its quite a cool little car, fast as f**k as we say over here!



And thats my other one! And a bad shot of me ladies! Very Happy
