Austin K3

This is one of the vehicles at Heaton Park, Manchester, at the Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally organised by the Greater Manchester Transport Society in September 1996.
It's a 1939 Austin K3 YB, entered in the rally by A N Lawton of Birch Vale, Stockport. It had a capacity of 3 tons and a 6-cylinder 3462cc petrol engine, and many K3s were used by the British Forces in WWII. I remember that they were a common sight on the streets in the late 1940s.
