OO GAUGE OXFORD DIECAST 1:76
LANCASHIRE EVENING POST AUSTIN K8 THREEWAY VAN
The K8 (3 Way) Van commenced production in 1947 and the van cost £535. It earned the name 3-Way due to the door configuration. To assist loading and unloading, it featured double doors on the near and offside, as well as opening near doors. With a payload of 25 cwt and a short wheelbase, it proved a very nippy vehicle for delivery purposes, where frequent drop-off was necessary. The van was discontinued in 1954, by which time over 26,500 had been manufactured. Due to its size and door configuration it was popular with regional newspapers for delivering daily newpapers to newsagents and is shown here with the Lancashire Evening Post roofboards.
