1973 Chevrolet Can Am
1973 Chevrolet Can Am
Stuart Jonhson

• In 1973, Chev Can Ams won every race they entered in South African production car events.

• GMSA needed to sell 100 of these cars in 1973 to homologate them for that year's production car racing championship.

• Today, the Chev Can Am is one of the most sought-after collectable classics of all the specials that South Africa built between 1968 and the early 1990s.
