The Austin K8

The Austin K8 was a distinctive commercial vehicle produced by the Austin Motor Company, and used the 2.2 litre engine taken from the Austin 16 h.p.

As with other Austin commercials, it was put to a wide variety of uses, including the well-known ‘3-Way’ van (so-called because of the three sets of doors – at the front, the side and the rear), but also other more specialised uses, such as the ‘Welfarer’ ambulance and even small coaches.
