A well sorted 1973 Bolwell Nagari coupe fitted with a 351 ci Cleveland V8 is currently advertised for sale in Adelaide.
Only around 120 Nagaris were ever manufactured by Bolwell at their Melbourne factory before the car business went bust, so finding a Nagari for sale is a reasonably rare occurrence and this is a fine example. Many were built with a Ford 302 Windsor V8 engine but a lesser number had the later 351 Cleveland.
Here’s what the advertisement on the Unique Cars website has to say:
Classic Australian car described as “Australia’s own Cobra”. John Bowe said in Unique Cars Dec 2013, “Australia’s very own supercar …. it was world class for it’s time”.
