Outback ute info?

I was wondering if anyone knows how many Outback utes were made. I have seen the figures on the FPV site for the XR utes (I recommend reading their history on the utes from 1934 thru Mainline, Zephyr, to current), so I presume someone kept track.

I would like to find out more about the development of the Outback package.

The other thing is I remember seeing a reference to one of the 4wd magazines taking an Outback over the Big Red dune on the Birdsville track – can anyone give me a pointer as to what magazine/issue?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

John.

Re: Outback ute info?

Someone also ran an Outback ute in one of the desert races and beat a bunch of 4WDs (the Hydratrak works real well). Don't ask me for details though!

You could always try clicking on the numbers 206 & 207 in my post above.

They aren't great photos anyways.
