Ford Australia invented the coupe utility in 1933 and these distinctive V8-powered workhorses quickly found favour in the bush. The Customline-based Ford Mainline V8 utes of the 1950s were the most powerful money could buy and were precursors of the highly fashionable Falcon XR8 utes. (In the US the ‘Mainline’ nameplate was used on sedans.) Mainlines were assembled in Ford Australia’s Geelong plant alongside Customlines, Consuls, Zephyrs and Prefects.


- Legendary Ford V8 ute, last of series
- Definitive late 1950s ‘cool’ workhorse
- Comes from a Ford collection

This 1956 ‘Star’ model (one of a trio of Fords from the one owner in this Shannons auction) was the last of a famous series and in its striking turquoise livery with red wheels makes a strong classic car statement. Period extras include a sunvisor and chrome wheel trims. Here is a fine opportunity to buy an affordable piece of classic Australiana. Currently Registered, however, will be sold unregistered.

Note: Shannons advise that all potential buyers research all vehicles before purchase to authenticate originality.
