Information about Buchanan

Buchanan Cars, an emblem of Australian automotive history, emerged in the 1950s as a pioneer in the kit car industry. The company, founded by N.H. Buchanan, initially made a name for itself by crafting sports cars featuring fiberglass bodies inspired by the Aston Martin DB3-S. This ingenuity was particularly evident in their modifications, which adapted the body to suit early model MGs, enhancing its appeal to local car enthusiasts.

The most notable model from Buchanan was the Cobra, introduced in 1958. This model was built on Standard 10 mechanicals and stood out in the automotive market, although only seven units were manufactured. The limited production underscored Buchanan’s niche in creating specialized, high-quality kit cars rather than mass-market vehicles.

Today, Buchanan’s legacy in the automotive world is marked by a blend of innovation and exclusivity. The brand’s impact is still felt in the preservation and restoration of its classic models by enthusiasts, highlighting both its historical significance and the enduring appeal of its design philosophy. Despite the company not being a major player in the current automotive industry, the passionate community around its vintage collections keeps the Buchanan spirit alive, celebrating its unique contribution to automotive history.
