Feature Car: Craig Lockhart’s 1964 EH Holden “Crewman”

09 Nov

Now for something a little different! Craig Lockhart owns what is probably the ONLY vehicle of its kind in the world in the form of this 1964 EH Holden ute. It boasts a stretched and massaged phantom body style, resembling the much more modern Crewman that Holden released with the advent of the VY model some years ago. You can read all about it and see some build shots in issue 50 of Brute Utes magazine, which is due to go on sale any day now.

It’s powered by a VT 304ci injected 5L V8 engine and features custom interior trim as well as immense detail no matter where you look; including under the car where everything has been painted and smoothed to a high sheen. Even the stainless exhaust system has been polished. Be sure to check it out when the magazine goes on sale.

As always, you’ll find our photos on Flickr complete with EXIF data and lighting information, however only the detail shots used any artificial lighting. The exterior shots were all shot using nothing but Mother Nature’s wonderful lighting from above. Sorry to all the strobist fans out there.

Feature Car: Shannon ‘Walt’ Robertshaw’s 1965 Ford XP Delivery

13 Mar

Also featured in issue 46 of Brute Utes & Vans is our feature shoot on Shannon ‘Walt’ Robertshaw’s retro-cool 1965 Falcon sedan delivery. We found Shannon and his Ford at the Taren Point Rat Day on a couple of occasions and finally picked up the phone and arranged a shoot. It’s certainly a mild custom, with only a short selection of nice modifications to make it a reliable and eye-catching daily without the need for engineer’s papers.

Powered by a stocker 170ci Ford six-cylinder up front, the delivery boasts plenty of pin striping and rodding stickers as well as the obligatory Mexican blanket, drive-in speakers and white wall tyres. He and his faithful companion can be seen cruising his native Central Coast (NSW) area all the time and we loved the laid back, old-school vibes this car dished out. Be sure to pick up a copy of issue 46 of Brute Utes & Vans when it goes on sale shortly.

We shot the Falcon in Shannon’s workshop using Canon Speedlite flashes and we’ve listed the lighting information on each image’s caption on our Flickr page as usual. You can read all that and download desktop wallpaper versions of the images by CLICKING HERE or on the images below. Enjoy!
