Welcome to African Muscle Cars

This site is dedicated to South African built muscle cars and other rare South African cars. In the late 1960's and early 1970's several muscle cars were built in South Africa. Very low volumes of these cars were produced and they are becoming very rare.

Some of the cars like the Fairmont GT and Chev SS were imported in CKD form and assembled in South Africa. Other cars were high performance versions of models sold through dealerships like the Capri Perana, Granada Perana and Chevy CanAm. One thing that is similar amongst all these cars is the fact that they were all built in South Africa. It makes me extremely proud to open the bonnet of a car and see "Made in South Africa by...."

Information on these cars is extremely hard to find, because of this, a lot of the information on this site can also be found on other sites. Where possible links will be provided to the original sources. The goal of this website is to provide a central place where information on all the different muscle cars can be found.
