1942 Austin K2.
This was my 1942 Austin K2 GGX 853.
This pic was at the Carlisle Great Fair in the 1980s. I found her in a scrap yard just outside Carlisle, spent a year on restoration and enjoyed taking it to local vintage shows and the yearly North East Military Vehicle Club event. I believe she is now a Scottish Fire Preservation Group. Good days.
