Out of Town 4WD was established in 1977 by Fred Black, who recognised a market for his skills in designing and manufacturing products for 4WD travellers. It began in a domestic back yard in Wangi Wangi. The business grew, and soon added other services such as 4WD vehicle maintenance and mechanical repairs, and reselling of quality 4WD accessories.
By 1988 we relocated to Barnsley. The company now provides an extensive range of products and services, and Fred Black and other employees had by this time amassed a wealth of 4WD maintenance, repair, and trip preparation experience. They are active and well known in local 4WD club circles, and through good connections with National 4WD magazines are well known throughout Australia.
