Anyone remember Greens motor dealership in Bridport?

FIATI see from an article in the View From Bridport free newspaper that Bridport is to get a Fiat car dealership.

It seems that Motorwell Group who currently run the Mitsubishi car dealership on East Road, Bridport by the roundabout will also be selling and servicing Fiat cars from a second showroom on the same site.

This got me thinking back to when there were two separate companies operating two sets of separate car dealerships and petrol forecourts on that site. If I remember correctly Greens Motors occupied where the Co-operative shop and Texaco forecourt now are and Bridport Motor Company operated from where Motorwell now trade.

This brings me onto the point of this post. I remember Greens Motors being a Datsun dealership but I believe prior to selling Japanese cars they were Fiat dealers. Can anyone with a long memory confirm or deny this?

    Hi Knobby, My father Bert Boston worked at Greens Motors in the 50s & 60s as a Pump attendant, Also his colleague,Jim Harris. I was only 10-14 at the time. They were a Vauxhall dlr then. & ( poss Triumph before that-but I cant confirm this) In 1966\67 I used to work nights in a Little Grill bar on the front by the main rd Called “The Pit Stop” (before the Roundabout) if you wish to ask any more question, I will try to find answers.
