This is a chopped Ford Utility or what? I wouldn’t have done that to that car…

  1. I think the reason that the real Ford Ute has the rear fenders sticking out is bacause they used a Mercury rear end which was a little wider than the Ford. So this blue ute looks to have some original Ford Ute pieces, but is very different from a stock ute. I wonder if it is really a sedan cut into the shape of a Ute?

    • I thought the same, could it have been trimed? Seeing the taillight and the interior I prefer think it is a custom UTE, without the bigger rear fenders. I didn’t know they came from Mercury. Nice!

    Ford Australia used their own panels on the rear of the utes. Not from Mercury. All of the body looks pretty standard but it has A/C and disc brakes by the look of the master cylinder
