Almost all manufacturers who have ever sold vehicles in Australia have made a ute at some time or other and in 'The Good Old Aussie Ute' author Larry O'Toole brings to the reader the complete story on how the ute came to be so dear to the Aussie heart.

Utes first emerged in the early 1920s and have been manufactured right through to the present day. Early versions were usually roadster utes with a soft top and integral utility bed, but in the early 1930s Ford stylist Lew Brandt came up with the coupe utility concept that set the pattern for the famous 'Aussie Ute' to become a legend.

● Who Made That Ute

● Phantoms - Utes that Never Where
● Custom and Show Utes

'The Good Old Aussie Ute' has pictures and background information on the early coupe ute including an original '33 Ford model that the author maintains could be one of the original prototypes.

Extensive photographic content allows most makes and models, from the most obscure to the most popular, to be identified.

The Aussie ute is an enduring icon in a crowded world-wide automotive scene and it will continue to be regarded by anyone who has owned one as one of life's most practical assets.

'The Good Old Aussie Ute' is a must-have for any Aussie ute fan or anyone with an interest in unique vehicles of any kind.
