Datsun ute is a classic

THIS Datsun 1200 ute was purchased approximately 20 years ago as a standard ute. It’s owned by local personality Michael Zammit or Woggy, as he calls himself. “I run a little business supplying hose and fittings and performance accessories called Wogrocket Industries,” he said.

“Like everything I’ve owned, it couldn’t stay standard for too long so with that I went to do a motor swap with its bigger brother the A15, but on the way to a friend’s place a guy ran me off the road. So off to the panelbeaters it went but came out looking a little too good for what I had planned for it. So the real modifications began, sourcing a Toyota 4AGZE motor Toyota Hilux gearbox and diff which had a few modifications to make fit. But the proof is in the pudding or in my case, Datsun. 

“After running larger wheels that didn’t really suit the era of the car I managed to get a set of work equip E03 wheels to really finish the look I was after. The interior is also customised where I’ve made new door cards, complete dash bride seats and a few other little touches.” If you like the look and sound of this car, Michael is actually thinking of selling it. “So if anyone is interested I’m sure you’ll track me down and get in contact with me,” he said.
