Austin A35 Pick-up, 1956-1957

What could you practically use a pick-up or - as they are called in A/NZ - a ute, with this amount of cargo capacity for? Only 475 of them were made over the two years mentioned, so evidently few people decided they served a useful role. Of course, the survivors are highly prized today.  Second pic from www.classic-car-co.uk ; see also this article on the NZ Classic Car website
