Bolwell Specifications
Founded in the 1950's by Campbell Bolwell and his two brothers, Winston and Graeme, with the idea of building low volume high performance sports cars. Each brother developed their own design through the 1960's, in the main using parts salvaged from pre and post World War II wrecks. Bolwell then grew from hobby-car manufacturer to serious kit-car manufacturer with the release of the Mk. IV, and in the process gained an ever growing following of loyal devotees, who liked the idea of choosing their own mechanicals.

In 1967 Bolwell released the Mk. VII, for the first time the purchaser being able to choose to have the car assembled by the factory. The high point came in 1969 with the release of the Mk. VIII Nagari, many design innovations being incorporated following Graeme Bolwell's return from a working holiday in the UK, much of his time being spent with Lotus - although the use of the Ford 302 or 351ci V8's added considerably to the allure. The company lost its way by 1979, trying to create a futuristic grand tourer that looked a little to kit-car esque, only able to reach sales of 20 in Australia before the concept was sold to a company in Greece.
