After many months of heartache and money, my new new rocket finally arrived, yah!!!
This is a BUB61 series 2 B1500 ute still sporting the factory tray. To give you an idea of it's rarity here, only 5 were sold with their factory styleside trays, the other 70 odd got converted to the flatbed/dropside trays.
It's pains me to say it but this may be the last one left of it's kind over here and I haven't found any yet over in the homeland, so I hope someone can prove me wrong here!
This ute sold along side the Mazda Carol 600 and were the first Mazda's to be sold on the eastern seaboard officially. It was a gamble that paid off as both of the models sold like hotcakes. After the success, Westco motors signed up to sell Mazda's and the rest is history as they say!
It still needs some work but all the main parts are there as you can see
