    Default 203 Ute on eBay

    Peugeot 203 Ute project 1953 would come up a treat too.

    From someone who has always had a ute to drive around in I reckon this one would be worth saving to use as a daily driver. Needs a bit of work though.. Install a thermo fan in front of the radiator in case yo get caught in slow traffic and all will be good.

    Dano, this one is for you.

    Not tempted to replace the Ford?

    I prepared some inspiration for you earlier, in your colour, just imagine it in Ute version

    Meh! It looks a little too plastic for me.

    I beg to differ. It has no sills, terminal rust, crook diff, a 403 motor and has cut up to fit a floor change. The best result would be to strip for any good remaining parts and dispatch the balance to the crusher. And by the way, it's at least a 1955 model judging from the instrument panel.

    Yes, a crying shame how sweet it is ... superficially ... I daresay in europe it might be different ( if cashed up) as more pressings are appearing all the time, at least for the sedan.

    If one were to send all 203s, 403, 404s etc with significant rust to the crusher there may well be almost none left. Cars such as this one should be kept until such time as someone with the cash or skills and time to restore it comes along.

    And is up to suffering the world of pain encompassed in the restoration.

    Worth every minute if one ends up with a good ‚un that is good for another few decades. Still good usable daily drivers and a bloody sight more interesting than most modern crap

    And no electronics or computers to go wrong - what‘s not to like ?

    Indeed....which is why I love cast-iron blocks with carbies, rather than newfangled injectors, air flow meters and so on cluttering up the engine bay.
