The New Arrival

I finally have my ute! It is a 1973 Austin A60.

It made the trip from Auckland to Wellington on a truck and I picked it up yesterday.

Today I crossed over on the ferry and drove it home. It didn’t miss a beat and it got lots of admiring looks and comments. It came with plenty of spare parts, including glass, a gearbox, radiator, a seat and a set of wheels.

Did you wear your brown suit for the maiden voyage??

Comment by Andrew

Wasn’t brave enough for that! Thought I might have had to change tyres or things like that, but I needn’t have worried!

Sweet as! 😀

Hey Chris, nice wheels. Does it have a bench seat so the whole family can travel together?? I’m guessing there’s no front airbags!!

Comment by Sara

No, no airbags. I am working on how I can get the car seat in. At the moment it just has 2 seat belts so some modifications will be required.
