A Morris 8, or as the utes were known, Morris Z.
They were ubiquitous when I was in primary school, in the 60s.

Yep, it is a Morris Eight, Series Z.  They were a five hundredweight capacity Ute or van. My father had one as our family car at one stage.  My sister and I had to sit on the wooden tray under a canvas canopy.
At one time Dad had a deal with a local abattoir, in exchange for giving them one pig, he could have the other butchered and returned to him.
When he took the two pigs over the weighbridge, the Morris was over weight!

Another time, he dug out a huge fence post and put it in the back of the ute.  He reversed on planks up the two steps onto the veranda of our rented house, through the double front doors and through double doors into the loungeroom so he could unload the post into the fireplace.  The post kept the fire going for many days, with dad having to use a poker to move it further into the fireplace as it burned down.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Don't have to apologise,  it was worth a second look.

If interested farm children have an advantage in learning vehicle handling and maintenance at an early age, Flat ground here with a short distance to the shed, Son Peter with his vehicles.

Don't remember this one, not for speed with a 1HP Villiers motor.
