1946 GMC Coupe Ute Pickup

From Neil :

           I live on the Mornington peninsula in Australia and am the proud owner of a 1946 GMC Coupe Ute (pickup). We call pickups "Utes" in Australia.

           The history of this vehicle, I believe, is the frame and running gear came out of Canada and the body was fitted by GMH Australia. This particular vehicle was used to deliver mail to the outback stations in the desert of South Australia, until the early 1970's. Then it was parked under a tree, on a farm in the outback for the next 25 years -- until a friend of mine came across it.

           My friend restored it over a period of five years. Then I purchased it from him last year. I have rebuilt the front end, redone the interior, repainted, etc. Here's a shot from the OTHER passenger's side.

           I came across your site and thought that your Bolters would be interested in this pickup.

           Note that the pickup body is part of the cab and the additional coupe windows. Also the front grille is horizontal unlike the Chevy grille being vertical. Apart from that, this is a Classic 1946. She runs a Chevy Blue flame inline 6 cylinder engine and a four speed manual crunch box.

           I hope you all enjoy -- I do!
