Oxford Die Cast Model Van
OXFORD 76AK005 – AUSTIN K8 VAN – AUSTIN SERVICE
COLOUR – RED/WHITE
1/76th Scale (00 Gauge)
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, including newspapers – as our model confirms – where frequent drop-off was necessary. The van was discontinued in 1954, by which time over 26,500 had been manufactured.
