--- HISTORY OF
Dingwall 2020 Car Auctions ---
Dingwall 2020 Car Auctions was originally
established in 1947 in Dingwall Road, Croydon, Surrey,
Mr. Sidney Hall hence the name of the current building ‘’SIDNEY
HOUSE’’. Mr Sidney Hall also founded MANTON MOTORS in
Croydon. There were Four Families, DEES, DOVES, LEATHWOODS and the
MANTONS and just after the war they represented FORD’S, AUSTIN /
MORRIS, ROVER, and the ROOTES GROUP, in that order.
Dingwall 2020 Car Auctions is
Croydon’s Largest Motor Auctioneers.
In 1966 the company moved to its present
home in Beddington Farm Road, Croydon.
The site where Dingwalls started,
is now under a high rise office block, but if you look carefully
you can still see one of the walls of the Garage where
it all started in 1947.
The pictures above and below show the early days in Dingwall Road
and MANTON MOTORS.
