I think it doesn't look too bad, aside from that the tray ends far too low.

I like it. Different. Ford Aus should do something like that to combat Crewman .

Broken diffs, burnt out clutches, rusted shells. Yep, were in Kingswood Country.

Re: Check this out - 4 Door ED XR Ute

I can't stand that paint.. brown or purple.. Gives pearl a bad name imo.. The tail lights dont suit and the wagon number plate bezel is wrong.. hmm if he did that to an XR wagon he has ruined it and will loose more money than if he had left it as it

Re: Check this out - 4 Door ED XR Ute

ill agree with racecraft and go further to say it looks shit house.

the shape just looks wrong

there was an EF/L around the hoppers area a while ago (it was for sale so it might be miles away now) and it was the same idea. 4 door with the ute rear....except it was done really well and looked good.

it was painted in the VT bronze/gold color, but was done before the VT came out....

Re: Check this out - 4 Door ED XR Ute

I'll give hime credit for actually making it and it looks better than I imagined it would considering it still has the high wagon roof and such a low tray height.

They way I'd do it (and I've thought about this a lot) would be to fit a sedan turret and rear doors and lift the top of the tray area to align with the kink in the back door for a more muscular look. Fitting flat glass (top-hinged?) in place of the sedan rear window would still give enough head room in the back and stop it from encroaching into the tray area. This would require some skillful fabrication of C-sail panels blended into the higher tray.

The same idea might work with an AU sedan turret / wagon lower with some really curvy sheetmetal (Hilliers!) for a really individual sports-ute.

If Ford won't build an R5 we'll have to do it ourselves.

It's just a wagon with a chopped off roof really, it's quite ugly.
