Well, it’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally managed to make some headway on the BRAT. I was very excited to get one, since I had turned one down (stupidly) years ago. I think it was a good thing, though, since I’ve built up my skills at cars in the meantime. And let me tell you… boy, do you need to be ready to leverage some skill against this thing!

After a lot of work, modifying the body and interior pans, adding, reshaping and scribing parts, the body is pretty much ready for paint! However, it was a long haul. Given that the reissue is due out in a month or so, you can get a preview of what you’re up against here. It won’t likely have gotten any easier with age! Despite it all, though, the BRAT’s such an interesting, niche vehicle that I have to say it’s worth all the work. Check out the first build update below, and get ready for a workout!

Call it mini ute, or whatever, I thought they were cool. Thanx for posting something very different!

They are cool indeed!

They are a Ute actually. Or a car-truck, if you like that term. Other than the El-Camino, they were really the only car-trucks around at that time. It's funny that everyone thinks of them as pickups, but they really aren't.

I'm glad people like the different stuff. I'm a big fan of it myself, of course. :)

I wanted to get in with the BRAT before the reissue comes out, so people can see what's coming down the pipe!
