Well, that explains why so many Aussies buy US cars/trucks and ship them home. The rust looks like that truck is a gonner. Jag

IMO, parts truck at best, that is if there is any metal on it that isn't tissue paper thin. I don't care where it's at, that's way too much for basically a piece of scrap metal, unless they're getting $4K ton for scrap metal.

They aren't making new ones, and are hugely popular. What's your alternative?

Essentially a 30's Ranchero! I wish they made stuff like that here.

I was at weekly show in Rocklin about ten years ago and a 55 UTE showed up. They were just visiting friends for a few days and decided to come to our local show. The car was all restored and had a very nice white paint job. For me, the best part was the front of the car. (You would think that it would be the bed.) It had the same grill, head lights, fenders, and hood as my 55 Fairlane! Way cool!! Jag

Nice 54! If I could find a 55 ute with the same front as my
Fairlane, that would be my next project. Jag

Possibly owned by Chuck Short, a rabid 1955 Ford "nut." Formerly a parts guy at Long Beach Ford Parts Obsolete, member of the Fabulous 50's Ford Club.

He bought it in Australia and had it shipped to San Pedro, then restored it. Chuck also had a Sunliner, Crown Victoria, Fairlane Town Sedan and a 9 passenger Country Squire.

That is a collection that I would love! I am also a 55 and 56 Ford nut, but just don't have the money to get all those...
