Hi Guys:

Sorry, Mike, I just realized "my" photo was in one of the "moving" panels to the right of your photo. I had forgotten the source.

I would bet Cliff may have some more Inter Ute photos, he sure has everything else.

Default Ford ?

I think the Corowa pic is of a Ford ute ?

The D series Inters did see a lot of army service early in the war . Some of them were roadster cabs like the ford 1 tonners . I had the chance to buy one years ago, the soft top version

I was too busy looking at the aircraft working out whether it was a Beaufort or Beaufighter! It's a Beaufort by the way...

Mike on looking a bit closer I think you are correct as it has the Ford 'Tear drop' headlight lenses.

Hi Nigel:

Great photos and thanks.

I do believe, however, the one on the left is a 1936 Ford, not an Inter.
