Ran accross this on eBay. I'd suspect these would be pretty rare. Shame to see it hot rodded.

Bizarre! I've never seen one of those before - and I've owned old Austins before. I believe its an A50 Cambrian (or based on one), not an A55, which were the Farina cars with fins.

Someone should rescue those wheels. TR7 guys???

It looks prety much like an A55 as sold out here during the late 50s. It would be nice to see the front end grill ect to I.D. it a bit more. Australia is the home of the ute, (which that is), but I have never seen an A55 ute like that.

We had a lot of Austin car based utes but I cant remember ever seeing an A55 based one. The A55 sedans sold here had similar lines to that though, and the dash and engine bay look the same as the sedan.

Indeed it is a puzzlement! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers.gif
