I ended up gutting and bracing the body shell and throwing the rest, it was to far gone to restore rust wise, the chassis/driveline i gave away.
Looking outside i can see her, sittin in primer and under cover, she's wild, channeled deep over a GM floorpan/chassis , has a vintage V8 auto combo, a restored 56 interior with a 3ft shifter and is customised in a 60's semi-custom style like all my rides. I must add her exhaust note is purr-fect.
I guess, one mans trash is certainly another mans treasure.

from my Google search, i think all ute bodies up to 1956 were imported, and they started producing the Australian made body in late 1956.
dad swears this is a 1954 ute, and its made in Adelaide.
the dash gauges are smiths, and look identical to the fuel gauge in our Morris, so perhaps your right in saying UK import.
apparently the gold knight badge stands for factory window tint, the common knight badge color is silver
we have to source new front engine mount rubber, any idea on where??
