The 1987 Australian Manufacturers' Championship was a CAMS sanctioned motor racing title for car manufacturers.[1] The title, which was the seventeenth Australian Manufacturers' Championship,[2] was contested concurrently with the 1987 Australian Touring Car Championship over a nine-round series.[3]

Each round was open to cars complying with CAMS Touring Car regulations which were based on international Group A Touring Car rules. Cars competed in two engine capacity classes:

  • Up to 2500cc
  • Over 2500cc [4]

Championship points were awarded on a 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 basis for the top ten placings in each class at each round. However, points were only allocated for the best placed car from each manufacturer at each round [4] and only the best eight round results could be retained by each manufacturer.[5]
