Summary
  • Edgar Jansen's association with the motor trade began during his childhood in Eudunda, South Australia where his father operated an engineering and foundry business which had expanded to include a Ford franchise in 1920. He worked in the family business from the age of 14, learning the various trades until he lost an eye in a foundry accident in 1934 and began working as a salesman. He recalls a memorable sale. After coming to Adelaide to work during the Second World War, Edgar worked for Dalgety's Motor Division and Champions Pty Ltd before establishing Jansen Motors in 1954 which he operated on South Road for 16 years as a Ford dealership. He recalls a sale from his early days in Eudunda which was secured by a car race; travel to America to inspect Mack trucks; his reputation as the most travelled Ford dealer in Australia; and his interest in car racing.
