Auctioneers comment: The Aberline family is a name synonymous with West Wyalong and the motoring industry having had garages in the town for over 75 years and have been in this location for the best part of 50 years. The family were trading in Ford motor vehicles up until recent times and are offering their complete workshop/dealership on an unreserved basis. During their years of service, the Aberline family were also Mobil, Dunlop and tractor dealers with items related to these dealerships still prominent in the collection including signage, stands, hi-boys etc. Several cars in the collection will be in keen demand being the GTR Torana and the Tank Fairlane given their provenance and condition. There is a significant run of workshop equipment, tools, car and workshop manuals etc as the family threw nothing out. A sale and an opportunity not be missed.
