Australian Phase 3 Ute

Immaculate Restoration of a Phase 3 Utility

The Phase 3 Vanguard was built only for the Australian market, and though there are a few of them in the UK, they are re-imports. It is good to hear that they are sought after in Australia and it is especially good to see one that has been restored to such a high Standard. Just how well the two tone paintwork suits this good-looking vehicle can be seen in this excellent series of photos:

Michael Kubeccek e-mails from Australia:

Just more info on my ute. I bought it from a friend, It used to be his fathers ute they used it on their farm until the mid 70s. They then used it for a shooting ute and also to drive to the farm gate to get the school bus. ( How many miles from the front door to the farm gate, I wonder?- Webmaster) It then sat in the paddock for some time before I acquired it. It took me 3 years on and off to finish it. I stripped every nut and bolt and took it back to bare metal. The only work I had done on the ute was the head lining and the cover,  I did the rest. The 1958 phase 3 utes are very rare to get in Australia as they are all rusted out and beyond repair. I have sent more photos for you to look at. 

Bye for now, Michael Kubecek.

I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know.  Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
