Not your regular datto ute

I recieved the perfect gift for Christmas… Return tickets to Japan, which means i need to post up everything from last trip before I end up with more images to share.

Rolling around in a hire car I spotted this 1200 ute. Here in Australia they pop up now and again but are generally restored and pretty uninspiring, not often enough do you see a registered version with a bunch of unique features.

The images suck as the rain through the day was getting me worried about the moisture, just squint a little and they clear up.


It starts off on the out side showing inspiration from hot rod / rock and roll culture.

The body works flat paint is offset by a splash of clear red over a set of work equips.


Chequers and polished steel tie the whole thing together.



The part that make the whole thing stand out is in the tray, a custom air bag setup obviously designed to go low.
