1934 dodge
« on: December 27, 2011, 11:40:39 AM »
I hope I'm not stepping in unwanted territory !
As I have been looking for a 34 Plymouth, I just bought a 34 Dodge DR Sedan sight unseen and will be picking it up in  the next week or two as the car is in pieces which is an unfinished project ! So now will have another addition to our family, will post pics of it after it gets home. Have to travel approx.7 1/2 hrs to get here and can't wait !
Cheers Tony.

Tony, I hate to sound completely ignorant, but, I'll give it a shot.  I never heard of a "ute" until I joined this site. What is a "ute"? Does "ute" stand for anything in particular? Short for something, slange for something? // ??
Thanks,
SDGlenn

Ford Australia was the first company to produce a coupe utility.This was the result of a 1932 letter from the wife of a farmer in Victoria, Australia asking for “a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday and which can carry our pigs to market on Mondays”.Ford designer Lew Bandt developed a suitable solution and the first coupe utility model was released in 1934 (In Geelong Victoria - This where I live).  Bandt went on to manage Ford’s Advanced Design Department, being responsible for the body engineering of the XP, XT, XW and XA series Ford Falcon utilities. General Motors’ Australian subsidiary Holden also produced a Chevrolet coupe utility in 1934 but the body style did not appear on the American market until the release of the 1957 Ford Ranchero.

Both the coupé utility and the similar open topped roadster utility continued in production but the improving economy of the mid to late 1930s and the desire for improved comfort saw coupe utility sales climb at the expense of the roadster utility until, by 1939, the latter was all but a fading memory.

By the 1980s in North America, the coupé utility began to fall out of favor again with the demise of the Ranchero after 1979, the Volkswagen Caddy, Dodge Rampage/Plymouth Scamp and of the Chevrolet El Camino by 1987.

Subaru offered the Brat in the early 1980s, and the Baja from 2003-2006. General Motors considered bringing a rebadged Holden Ute to the United States in the form of the Pontiac G8 ST in 2009, but the global recession (and GM's ultimate bankruptcy) caused them to cancel it.

The pickup truck, on the other hand, started its life a little earlier and is defined by its separate, removable, well-type 'pickup bed'. This pickup bed does not contact the cabin part of the vehicle, while the ute bed is an integral part of the whole body. Both the coupé utility and closed cab pickup designs migrated to light truck chassis & these are correctly known respectively as Utility trucks & Pickup trucks. Eventually the pickup design found a natural home on the smaller truck chassis while the ute became entrenched as a passenger car derivative, although exceptions do apply.

Hope this helps
