From the seller: “Austin K8 breakdown truck…original Austin dealership breakdown truck
First registered on 16/1/1951, I have the latest V5c in my name ,I have the earlier V5 and also the original buff log book, its still on its original number plate LYE 600, I also have some old mot certs going back till the early 90’s, tax disc from the mid 90’s bill of sale from the person I brought it from also the bill of sale from John mould who owned the vehicle from 1984 he brought the truck from burnside motors (3rd owner in the buff log book) so full history from new!! Also I have original sales brochure for a K8 three way van and also chassis parts list and running and maintenance original books.
All I have done to the truck is, removed the cylinder head, reground the valves, fitted a new old stock carburetor, rebuilt the shock absorbers, had the chroming done and also redone the interior (all need refitting) also collected a load of parts, eg original rebuilt trafficators, original spot lamp for the rear plus a load of other parts.
All the winch on the rear is complete and working with extras like wheel clamps towing bars etc..”
