Found sitting in front of a rural tire and auto repair facility, is it awaiting work? Or has the owner said “Enough!”?
What am I waiting for? Waiting for GM to bring the Holden Ute to the states… which they had considered doing for Pontiac. Move the steering wheel to the other side and slap a Chevy emblem on it; they will sell. We’ve gone without any car-based pickup for too long.
Chevy ute by Holden has always been available from South Africa
I think that this is the one variant of the Chevrolet Colonade series that appeals to me, although I prefer the looks of the earlier ones. I like these in a single color better than the common 2 tones, as the single color lets the graceful lines speak for themselves.
The vehicle appears a bit “nose high”. Perhaps there is no engine under that hood?
I was going to say it is waiting for someone to stick an engine back under it’s hood.
Hey! I have one of those too.
Looks sharp in White! Is that a vinyl top too?
It sure is, though I didn’t put it there. I got the car/truck about a year and a half ago, when I sent my 1975 Duster to it’s unpleasantly surprised new owner, and have been focusing on the mechanical aspects over the cosmetics. I’m still baffled as to why someone saw it to be a good idea to put a white vinyl on a white car.
Dan and Eric, you stole my thunder. Had one of these with just that stance. 67 model with a reasonably good body. Somebody beat me up with money and I let him have it. That stance screamed no engine to me.
That begs the question. I think it’s waiting for work but not on the tires. A little heart and lung transplant seems to be in order.
Never cared for that body style- just looks too chunky for my taste.
Even so, with a Laguna S3 nose transplant and painted some high-impact color, these things can still look kinda bitchin’.
Needs a two-tone paint job – red with blue door
I had a 1975 GMC Sprint, had a disagreement with a stop sign and before you knew it the Sprint had a Laguna front end on it. Shot the car a mid Royal Blue color with Monte Carlo rallye rims and L-60′s on the rear. 350 two barrel, duals, factory tach and buckets and console. One of my favorite cars despite the wonky taillights (connector in the bottom of the driver’s side lower fender). I always loved the interchange of parts with the big body GM’s back then. My first born came and off it went, i cried when i watched it going down the street.
