Did it exist in USA in such version? Or was it an Australian model?

The ute is not available in USA. Can anyone from the Oz confirm this?

From Wikipedia:


The Ford Mainline was a car available from 1952 to 1956. It was the base model below the Customline and the Fairlane. There were two major versions of the Mainline: the 1952–1954 version and the 1955–1956 version. In Australia the Mainline was a "ute" version of the rhd Customline. The cabin, front sheetmetal, doors, running gear and (convertible) chassis were imported from Canada and the rear utility section was made by Ford Geelong. The ute was a 'poverty pack', no door arm-rests, no radio, clock, cigarette lighter or heater

Poverty pack, perhaps, but it sure does make a stylish street rod!

Regarding the wheels: I don't know on which cars those wheels were available in Australia, but those are the same "styled steel" wheels offered on high performance American Fords in 1968 and 1969...they were the base wheels for Ford Mustang GTs, Ford Torino GTs, high-level Mercury Cougars and Cyclones, and so on.
