That is a wonderful body style for a ute! Great looking vehicle.

> Hi Guys. Excuse the non Healey question. I’m hoping someone on the list has access to early Austin records. I have an Austin A70 Hampshire utility with an unusual body / chassis number prefix. Normally the utilities were prefixed BQU2. This one is BQC2. I have suspicions that it was built as a cab chassis commercial with no rear utility tub. I have questioned British Heritage about it and they say that in the records BQU2 has been crossed out and BQC2 hand written with the comment “new type”. However they admit they don’t have a lot of knowledge about it as they produce very few heritage certificates for this range of vehicles. This vehicle was produced in December 1950 was shipped from Austin in lead primer.  I have attached a photo for interest.
