You know whats nice OZ? It didn't find it, a mate did! A mate thats not really even into cars. It was listed as "Belett ute" on all classifieds, which doesn't offer suggestions for missed spellings. ;)
So, thanks Craig! You beauty!!
:D :D :D

7 in Vic that I can count off the top of my head that exist today.
My 2, another quiet forum member has 2, 2 more out west, and the twin of the SA "Rustin" car.
A yellow one came here from NSW in the late 90's and was sold again not long after, but never heard of again. New owner had other Bellett's inc a PR90 with alot of desirable bits on it.
There was another in WA 2 decades ago..... Disappeared too.
I think u have accounted for all the others I know of, without checking and cross checking that is.

So if my adder-upper is working OK, I get a total of 35. Which amazes me, as utes are bought to work, and so often are discarded once worn out. Thankfully there are plenty of pastures in Aus to put them out to, like good old horses, and it would seem plenty of Wasps have endeared themselves to their owners.
And unlike horses, they don't die, as my recent find has shown! ;)

I still don't have a styleside, so need to keep my eyes peeled! :D
Cheers, Matt.

Hi Matt,
You're so right, it is amazing that so many are still around. In another thread somewhere, Brett has indicated that records show only 122 Wasps were brought into Australia in one shipment; so now almost 50 years later we have over 28% of them still around !! That's a huge effort.
