Nuffield dealer in Perth, Australia.
An accessories dealer and repair facility located in Melbourne. Monaro Motors (named after the nearby Monaro Rd, where it had probably originated) was run by Jack Ould in Malvern Rd, Malvern, when in 1951/1952 a certain Peter Manton went to work for Jack. They were selling MGs and manufacturing various improvement parts, like alloy aero screens, side covers and rocker covers. With Peter's arrival Monaro Motors became what is recognised as the first Speed Shop in Australia (What would be called a Tuning Company in the UK) they were also agents for Wade Superchargers.
