Best Australian CarsThis is simply a list of the best car's to have ever came out of Australia, I will ONLY count cars built in Australia.
And finally! The versatile car. These old beauties excelled in every form they took - ute, coupe, sedan, whatever - which leads to the next point: they offer more variety than any other car, ever (probably). They sold over 185,000 units and used the same base until 1984. This car was amazing. It was even imported to South Africa. It has generations of Aussie petrol heads and rev heads wishing they could afford an HQ coupe while owning an HQ ute, sedan, or station wagon. If you want an Aussie car, this is the way to go.
The old girl who kept on going. The Falcon was up against the Kingswoods and the Commodores. When it came to Australia, it was rather American. Did we trust it? Maybe, but soon we redesigned it, and it was awesome. Then we did it again, and again, and again. Now it's still going, although no coupes are available.
It was American, but now it's not. This was an Aussie car we didn't see coming. With one of the coolest names around and a body design that knocked critics off their seats, this car was great. However, all good things come to an end sooner than we expected, but we fell in love with it nonetheless.
Is it a pickup? Or a car? That is the question. Although Americans frequently ask this question in confusion and often with disdain, we love these vehicles. They're works of genius. It's always funny to watch Americans embarrass themselves while talking about their El Caminos to us.
Mad Max's car was a Ford. This beautiful old thing was really only good in coupe and ute forms, although its other versions were great too. The two-door models had curves like nothing we'd seen before.
The Aussie German car. Somehow this car from Germany ended up in Australia, and now it's our favorite still-running Holden model. From VB-VL to VN-VS and VT-VY to VE-VF, we've followed this car.
More iconic than the Sonic, perhaps. These were where GMH began. They had no idea what they were starting. From the FX's iconic shape to the FJ's iconic grill, these old vehicles felt like a part of the family - only big and metal.
An Aussie Mustang, this car was one of the greatest to ever come out of Australia, and one of the most iconic. This little car was a big deal. Though I say it's an Aussie Mustang, it was actually very different. From 308 to 253, we were all scrambling to get one. When they accidentally remade it in the '90s, we flocked to it as if we'd found a long-lost friend.
A little car with a big heart, somewhat like Australia's Mini. The Torana was cool wherever it went, and whatever form it took, from coupe to sedan. It's a tough little thing, not ahead of its time or behind. It was just right.
A car with no roof, yet still conventional. I know what you're thinking: "What's a Capri doing on this list?" Well, keep in mind it is at the literal back of the list. Now let me explain. I'll go as far as to say that many people around Australia love these little roadsters. Why not? They're like Ford trying to bring back the '20s in a weird '90s way, and to be honest, it kind of works.
Australia's best luxury car.
Silky smooth, comfortable, well-finished, exceptionally reliable, with good fuel economy and very easy to maintain. Perfect for massive road trips.
