Utes (utility trucks built in Australia) are extremely rare.   Only a handful exist today.

That was what I figured, I asked if it was Dons on another thread. Don helped me out a lot, I found the front wheels for my t-bucket on southern CA Craigslist, they were close to Patriot Headers where Don works. He went by, looked at them for me, closed the deal on my behalf, and arranged the shipping. Very helpful guy. Nice sixties vintage 15x6 Americans are getting hard to find.
Wanted: Used +030 TRW L2249 or Speed Pro 7061P 12.5/1 289/302 ford pistons

They look so cool, that paint would look wild on my Willys, but so would Dean's A pickup color.

I am planning to paint my bucket Packard Naples Orange, just a tad of a redder orange than Dons PU. It was a popular hot rod colour in the sixties. That '34 five window with the blown cad that Randy Bianchi did for that guy was Naples orange. By the way, DONT do a google image search for "Randy Bianchi" if you have safe search turned off!! :o YIKES!!
