Time to get my '71 ute back on the road


Well its finally time to get my '71 datto 1000 ute back on the road after 15 years in the shed. So glad I've hung on to it !!
Motor is out, head has been reconditioned, got new pistons & rings to put in this weekend, staying with the A12 that it came with back when I bought it in 1992 - and I'll do up the body and interior as I get the time.
Cant' wait to drive this around again!
 
Good to see another ute getting back on the road! I think you beat my record of 11 years in the garage but they are worth the wait.
Don't give up! I though I was crazy for hanging on to mine, had it off the road for 5 years, and have brought it with me after moving 3 times. Good to see I'm not the only one.
