Mr Col Crawford, 1933-2021

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mr Col Crawford on Monday 24th May 2021.
Col was our Founder and Chairman of Col Crawford Lifestyle Cars – a business he started in Brookvale on 11th May 1967 – 54 years ago. Now a third-generation family business Col leaves behind a beautiful legacy to his son Stephen and 3 Grandsons, Harrison, Jake, and Will.
Col was an inspiration to so many people – his family and their loved ones, friends, colleagues, and staff, what he achieved in life and in the motor industry all of us will be forever proud. He was a true legend and a gentleman, always full of love, laughs, and entertainment.
I know this news will bring on a heavy heart to many in the community.
We will always love you Col.
Nissan announcement

Further Information on the Non-Renewal of the Col Crawford Nissan Dealer Agreement

As of 31st August Col Crawford ceased to be a Nissan Dealer. After 47 years of representing Nissan (originally known as Datsun), Nissan Motor Company Australia has chosen not to renew our Dealer Agreement. This decision by Nissan has not been performance based. Such as a Manufacturer (Franchisor) can design and have in place in a Dealer Agreement with the current Australian legislation and franchising codes, non-renewal, and in our case the franchisor has simply made the decision not to renew the franchisee’s (Col Crawford’s) term as a Dealer.
