The Chevrolet Constantia is an automobile which was marketed by Chevrolet in South Africa from 1969 to 1978. The first series Chevrolet Constantia went on sale in May 1969, along with the lower priced Kommando. It was based on the Australian Holden Brougham four-door sedan, but featured a unique frontal treatment. The styling changes were undertaken in General Motors’ Port Elizabeth studios in South Africa and the model was locally produced. The Constantia was offered with a 4.1L six-cylinder, and a 5.0L V8. 1,167 Constantia’s were sold in 1974.
The AQ series Constantia was introduced in 1972 and was based on another Australian design, the Statesman HQ. Again, frontal styling was different from the Australian model, this time featuring a unique grille based on the 1970 Chevrolet Malibu. The restyling work was a joint effort undertaken in Australia.
