Oxford Diecast Midland Red Austin K8 - 1:76 Scale

Product Code: 76AK015


The Austin K8, also known as the three-way van because it had opening doors at the back and on both sides, was an extremely popular and versatile commercial van from the time it was introduced in the late 1940s. This model would have been used as a support vehicle for Midland Red. The bus company itself operated in the Midlands between 1905 and 1981 and was one of the largest in the country, operating over a large area, which at its extremities covered Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, the Welsh Borders and Gloucestershire. It was the trading name used by the BMMO - Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company, which was renamed the Midland Red Omnibus Company in 1974.
This detailed model in the trademark red livery of the bus company is from the 1950s-1960s age of public transport.
