Bernie and Paul’s 1953 Morris Oxford Utility Truck

Jun 12, 2018 | Customer Projects

The 1953 Morris Oxford Utility Truck was a 5-year venture for the owners Bernie and Paul.

With the ute being completely rusted out, many people including a professional said it would not be rebuildable. Paul never gave up and was eventually putting the finishing touches on.

It was painted just 18 months ago (2016) in Protec’s Direct Gloss (GMIX). This was in a custom colour based on a 1984 Toyota Aqua colour. The vehicle was installed with a featured 1.5ltr Nissan Super Charged Engine. Finally, the vehicle is now being used happily as a Sunday driver. Paul and Bernie’s best tip would be to “Start off with a good body and go from there”.

This vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
