Ute's were commonly made on a car chassis, and most were based on a coupe with a truck bed. But if you look on google under chevrolet ute, or ford ute, you will see other variations that used a sedan delivery and a few that used a truck nose & chassis.

Hay fellas,
'thanks for droping past,
well i just bought myself another ute as well tonight,

a 1946 ( at least i think he said 46 but it sure looks like a 48 ) chevy ute, it has "style master" on the dash so im assuming that's the model,so will try to find a few pic's as well.

it's in faily good nick and has been in a shed for a lot of years,a old mate of mine bopught it a while back but due to illness he's had to give his project up.

ther's a Jag front and rear end sitting under neath the chassi read for fiting up,the body is in really good nick and not a lot of panel work required to finish it up!

i just took a few quick snaps tonight but will grab a few more on tuesday when we roll her out for a sit and look session.

i have googled the thing a few times now, found lots of 46 stylemaster sedans, thay most defently have the same forunt end,grills guards ect...

but struggling to find any pictures of utes... again.

Kind Regards, Brett
