After a few minor hurdles and hiccups over the last few weeks, the latest member of our Austin fleet has finally arrived.
Sadly though, she will have to sit outside with the other 2 for a few months until the big new ''Austin" shed (12 x 9 x 3.6m) has been built.
Yes I know the red one is a Bedford, but its still and old British cousin
The K2 is slow progress at the moment, but hoping to have the springs and wheels on her by the end of this week and then looking forward to getting the engine back from her deep strip and rebuild.

I just had a quick look after she was unloaded and I think they are all 7 x 200.
Rims are all good, a mixture of front and rear most of the tyres have run their life, but I reckon I will manage to get a full set out of what's there.
Sent the vin number of to the UK and just waiting for confirmation of its build year etc.
Any sightings of other K8 breaking for spares would be much appreciated.
