This website aims
to provide a resource for owners of Buchanan bodied cars and enthusiasts
with an interest in the cars. It is designed and written by Kean
Rogers of the
The Kangaroo Stable.
vehicles to similar specification include one original car in WA, another
raced by John Hunter in NSW with the Historic Sports and Racing Car
Association and one in pieces in QLD with a rusted out chassis.
For Historic racing in Australia follow the links below to the respective clubs in each state.
With 145 bodies known to have been built, to date 35% are accounted for. If you know of a Buchanan bodied car or history of any of the Holden powered racers please email details to: Buchanan
A detailed register of the cars is being compiled from any information received. Photos of cars are most welcome and will be included with individual car histories.
The NSW Bolwell club has a page for Aussie specials, including the Buchanan. There's a great story from the son of an original owner who built one back in the late 1950's.
