While I’m sure there are plenty of people in the United States who would love to have a Ute, they seem to be even rarer here than other Oz-only vehicles. Understandably so: If you’re going to go through the expense and hassle of shipping an Australian car over here, you’d likely want to expend that effort on a Ford Falcon or Holden Monaro or Chrysler Valiant Charger supercar rather than a basic Ute. It appears this 1934 Chevrolet Ute was street rodded before the trip to the States, possibly providing a reason for this one to make the jump. From the seller’s description:
Very rare, genuine Australian 1934 Chev Coupe “Ute” pickup. Less than 100 made in the coupe utility format. Runs a 327 (over bored 307) with Turbo auto trans and 9” Ford rear end. All steel body with fiberglass fenders, painted Orange. Disc brake GM Holden independent front end, drum rear. Black pleated interior. Pick up bed is fully functional with the lid hinged and lifting up to expose a well detailed bed. The gas filler point is also located inside the bed for security and a clean line. Car was completely rebuilt from the ground up as shown in the pictures by an experienced auto body man. It was well engineered to drive on much tougher roads than those that are found in the USA. Hence the car drives and cruises along exceptionally well on US roads. It is right hand drive as original. It is a rare “ute” that looks the part and will not disappoint. Car is currently titled, registered and located in Maryland.
