Oasis Garage of Southend-on-Sea - Triumph car dealer 57

Oasis Garage of 654-662 Sutton Road, Prittlewell, Southend-On-Sea, Essex are the feature business in this post in my series about Triumph car dealers.
Oasis Garage Ltd traded for many years from their site at 654-662 Sutton Road, Prittlewell Southend-On-Sea Essex.  I have them listed as a Standard Triumph car dealer for a period.  After losing the Triumph franchise they sold various other brands of cars including Datsun and Colt/Mitsubishi.

I believe that this is what has become of the site that was Oasis Garage. Behind the cars I can see doors for flats at 452a and 454a Sutton Road.
