It's an Australian Ford Prefect Ute, like the one from 1950 visible here: www.answers.com/topic/ford-prefect-car

This is not a 10 hp Prefect but looks more like an 8 hp Anglia. One odd thing though is that it has the small head lights of the low price Popular. Here is the story on the Anglia (the Aussie version is the A494A) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Anglia - and here is the Popular (with the Aussie production which included a 103E coupe utility) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Popular

I think this is an early 1950s Popular coupe utility, probably quite rare nowadays.

Agree Popular features (small headlights, also painted wheel hubs and wiper from screen top). The wiki para:
"The Popular 103E was available in Australia up to 1955 as a two-door coupe utility and also in chassis-cowl form to accept custom built bodywork. It used the 94 inch wheelbase of the Ford Prefect with 103E front panels. The utility was designated as 103E-67 and the chassis-cowl model as 103E-84. The Popular utility differed from its Anglia A494A utility predecessor in that the Popular did not have running boards whereas the Anglia did have them."

This is a longer wheelbase than the normal Popular, so seems correct for the wiki comment about Prefect chassis.
