SA Big block V8s

Post by IndianaJones » Wed 13 Jul 2016, 08:42

Which SA-assembled vehicles from Chrysler, Ford and GM, came factory fitted with a Big block V8, or any V8, 383 cubic inches and larger?

Of the top of my head, I can only think of the Chrysler 383, and perhaps some earlier poly-head Chrysler’s…

Ford Fairlane’s and Galaxie’s with the 390 FE engine, were Thunderbird’s imported fully built up, or assembled here?

Not sure if there were any SA-assembled Cadillac’s…
Was the 396ci Chevrolet ever available in a local-built GM product?
What of Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac?

Dodge Monaco also had a 383 in it.
