    It is hard to get any parts. When father bought K30, now my, he got with any parts from K2 Ambulance (on picture) yes it was K2 Ambulance. This Ambulance ended his life in scrap :-(( We have only axles, bonet, fenders, ... 7 years ago we bought near the Prague the spare engine, was in box. I got any parts when I wisit the first owner in Czech. He got K30 in UNRRA help. (I have all papers from 1946 for this lorry) And now I am buying parts on Milweb and Ebay. Radek

    I have any pictures of Austin K30, early withopened cab or late wit closed cab. What I know, many early army lorries was 30cwt (1,5ton) but this wasn´enought after then came 2tons, 60cwt (3ton) and more. The Austin 30cwt was start before ww2 and the production end was around 1941 after then was made only K2 (2ton) nad K3 (3ton). This lorries looks like similer only the capacity is bigger. On my K30 are double rear leaf springs. I thing it was added for bigger useable. Many this K30 left the british expedition army in Dunkerque. :-( Radek

  22. Hi, I am from Czech Rep. (the middle of Europe, no far East :-)) ) My father start collection of Austin cars 20 years ago. In the Soviet block was wery hard find any parts or information for British cars. The first idea was make one Austin, but the car was uncompleted. He has bought another one, it was the same adn another tipe. After then he collected Austins. :-))) Until this time are in our family Austin Seven, Ten Cambridge, Twelve, 8AP Military tourer, K2 Ambulance body + many parts, this wayt for theyr time and A30, Champ, K30/Y for small repair and moved Ten Lichfield and my K30. When I was starting renovation of K30 one of many question was what wear on. Only BD was o.k. from this time started me reactment. After then came my frind with idea: "You are Czech, why don´t make reactment as Czechoslovakia army in UK during ww2" Now I spand all my free time for my doughter, Austin and reactment. :-))))))))) Radek
