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 commercial vehicles, 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.
