I came across this very small article in an English Jaguar publication a while ago about MS Brooking in Perth.
"Way off in what the British referred to often then as the ‘colonies’, Perth Australia, Jaguar (and Willys) distributor MS Brooking operated out of this former shop in Perth.
Good news though. As Jaguar sales succeeded in Perth so the business grew. In fact, Brookings were so important to Lyons’ dreams that they got XK120 RHD chassis #4 – that car remains in Perth owned for decades by dedicated Jaguar lover Neville Martin. His car was sold new to Spiro ‘Spike’ Michaledis who hill climbed it, and unknown to him, he became the first person in the world to drive an XK120 in any form of competition!"
My MKV was sold through MS Brooking late in 1951 and as such I would like to know a little more about the company if anyone had information to share.
