I got 71%, same as my age!

I have never seen most of those Utes but the sheetmetal is generally the same as trucks I have seen.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

74 % :woohoo:
The make was easy but the year not so much. Any Aussie ute quizzes??

I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Southbound, this will test you. I have never seen one before.

Australian recovery unit Middle East 1942. Australian ute but where did the flares and dual wheels come from. Chev or Ford probably. Looks like Australia invented the dually pick-up! Or were Australian Army workshop blokes the first hotrodders?

Duals, or balloon tyres? I know Studebaker experimented with balloon tyres late 40's / early 50's on the 2R5 utes.

Looks like you have it. The blokes on the military vehicle forum have come up with the same answer. 39 Ford ute with the rear guards cut out for the wheels. Debate over whether they are duals or 9.00x13 balloon tyres. The balloons are getting the vote as they would have been available as they were fitted to several other types in service at the time.





Here is a later Ford Woody with the balloon tyres fitted as standard (captured by the Germans).

The ute above is a 1940 standard model, mine was 1939 Deluxe, the standard models had the grille similar to the previous years deluxe model with less chrome.
I also had a Woody, 1938 Deluxe, built by Hastings Deering in Auburn. I sold it about 1998 after 21 years of ownership, It appeared recently in an Australian Hot Rod mag restored to former glory.

Although these are not what we would call a ute., the army called them a 6 seater utility. Fully designed and built in Australia. I would love to have one but have only found rusty relics.
