Simso, welcome to the 'bolt. Post your question about the starter in the electrical forum please. Your ute looks great!! Check out the international map. I know there are a few 'bolters "down under".

Ditto on the welcome!
And a great looking Ute! Wish they were offered in the US years ago and today.
New Toyota Utes seem to be the wanted truck down-under now.

Yeh, there was a very strong rumour that the el camino was inspired by the australian utes,

America had pickups, Australia went the path of utes.

Whilst it is a 1950 chev, the cab and body were fabricated by Holden, who in the 40's were coach builders for many manufacturers not car manufacturers themselves.

Welcome to the Bolt, Simso. You join a great group of truck guys. Love the UTE. We have a local Chevy dealer who is a "collector". I was at the dealership talking to a friend when he showed me a 478/48 Ute. Love them. Your a lucky guy. Hang onto that one for sure.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
