I've either seen one of these in the junkyard or the one he described where "they'd take the trunk lid off, find an old Model A pickup box and shove it in there"

They actually sold bed kits to convert your car to a truck! (y):cool:

Years prior to purchasing my current El Camino, I was looking at purchasing a 1936 Chevrolet Utility Pickup with right hand drive that had come from Australia.
I ended up in emergency surgery and it sold before I recovered.
It looked like a 36 two seater coupe with a body that flowed continuously into the bed sides. This was not a box stuck in the trunk, It had Chevrolet markings.
Here is a link to show you what that body looked like. The one I was looking at was in fairly good shape with a green paint.
History of the Holden Ute dates back to Chevy Utes - Gasers.com
