But it’s with Vauxhall the firm is celebrating with for they first starting selling the brand in Bradford in 1960.

Since then, the dealer group has gone on to sell more than 50,000 Vauxhalls to customers.

Les Cooper, brand director at JCT600 said: ‘Launching the Bradford dealership when we were just ten years old ourselves, JCT600 is proud to have played such an important part in its heritage and we’re looking forward to continuing that relationship over the next fifty years.’

Over the last 50 years JCT600 has enjoyed a strong partnership with Vauxhall. The firm was recently selected as one of the brand’s top MasterFit retailers in the country winning The MasterFit of the Year award in recognition of its strong customer satisfaction, customer retention and business growth.
