Rumour has it the “Ute” came about from a letter a farmer wrote to Ford asking for a “vehicle to take his wife to church in on Sundays and take his pigs to market with on Monday’s”. We’re not sure if we believe that, but we do know that the Ute has been a much loved part of the Australian iconography since the 1930’s. From the Jackaroo, to the Farmer, the Revhead Tradie or just those looking for a practical vehicle, the iconic Ute fits the bill. So whether you want to throw your surfboard in the back, bring your dog to the park or take your tools to the job, a Ute is likely to be you ride of choice.
