1951 Australian Tempo Matador adverts
Tempo Matadors were imported into Australia between 1949 and 1951 and proved to be popular sellers. A surprising number have survived, but almost none are on the road. They are something of a cult vehicle amongst the VW Kombi set. There are even a couple in my home state of Western Australia. Here is a link to the Matador Mafia forum http://www.noh2o.org/viewforum.php?f=25 and a selection of adverts from Australia.
Australian National Motors also test imported the DKW 3=6 in 1960. It proved to be a failure and none were sold.
Harnett Distributors also imported Goliath and Lloyd cars, including their own re-badged vehicle, the LLoyd-Harnett.
