Austin K9 1952

For Sale is my Rare 1952 Austin K9 4x4 Cargo Variant.
It was Manufactured by Austin in 1952 for the Military.
It has a straight 6 4 litre engine which runs sweetly, it is selectable 4 speed with high or low ratio (constant 4x4 ) the cab has a roof navigation hatch or convoy look out and Apparently there are fewer than 40 roadworthy vehicles of this type left.
All the hard work has been done on this truck all the rust was cut out and new plates were welded on cab, wings etc new back was fabricated from plans made from a mates FFW Austin K9.
There has been an Alternator conversion done and Halogen headlights fitted and new exhaust silencer fitted.
The Brakes have been completely refurbished including new copper brake pipes, flex hoses, striped cleaned and honed the brake cylinder bores and fitted new seals, bleed nipples and bolts, replaced master cylinder with new old stock original and the brake shoes have been properly adjusted with new springs fitted to front offside hub.
The fuel system has been stripped and rebuilt including new copper pipes and fittings from lift pump refurbished and fitted new seals to lift pump and carburettor and fitted modern inline fuel filter, a new coil, cap, leads and fan belt.
New Radiator, new Exhaust Silencer. as well as renewing the Temp sender and sorting out the oil pressure gauge.
The Bar Tyres on the vehicle are in very good condition for their age but some surface cracks are the walls.
Things that will need doing The fuel Gauge doesn't work I think it's the sender as the gauge moves a bit, The gear leaver seems to have a bit of wear not sure if this is normal.
The Truck has been under a sheet for 2 years so needs a bit of loving care a good clean up but she drives lovely for an old truck.
There are 2 spare wheels, 1 gearbox that i was going to get refurbished and put in the truck if needed, shovel, pickaxe, Jack and an assortment of spares.
She's a lovely truck just would like to see her go to a good home where she will be used.
