Vauxhall for me. Which one ? I suspect a Cresta PC.

Agree Cresta PC if Vauxhall, but not sure what other similar GM stuff was available in ZA - eg Holden, local Chevy??

It's definitely not a Holden.

Ok - entered as Cresta. No reference to local build found.

When discussing engine sizes 'vauxpedianet' refers to GM South Africa assembling the Viscount PCE from CKD kits with the 5.2 litre Chrysler V8 engine its likely I think they also assembled the Cresta PC.

At the end of that section it says ZA built the Cresta from April 66, adding the Viscount in September 66 (including their unique version with Chrysler 5.2 litre V8).

Also some detail of NZ [PC] assembly from early 66 until 1971 of the Cresta Standard [PCS], along with imports from UK of Cresta Deluxe, estates, and Viscount.

Plus a useful reminder that Switzerland made Crestas and Viscounts from April and July 1966.
