Bolwell 1966-74 - 2017-18 market review

bolwell Bowell Roadsters are ultra-rare. bolwell

Still a good thing and not too savage in the price department, compared to many other local star cars.

With the Big Three all departed, Bolwell with its Nagari 300 stands alone as Australia’s sole-surviving car-maker. A new Bolwell can cost $200,000 but grabbing a bit of glass-body history is still possible for well below $100,000. That amount should buy one of the super-scarce Roadsters [only 13 built] and will certainly fund a V8 Nagari coupe at $60-70,000. Most have 5.0-litre Ford V8s, occasionally the more powerful ‘351’. Mark VII coupes from the 1960s come mostly with six-cylinder engines and were among the best-looking cars of their era. Prices have remained at around $30,000 for some years. Body moulds survive so fixing a damaged Bolwell isn’t difficult.

Mark VII $30,665 [3]

Nagari Coupe $69,900[1]

Nagari Roadster [N/S]
