Holden made the Torana between 1967 and 1980, offering a variety of models for the same platform. Some of them have recently sold for a lot of money, both because they’re highly collectible and because they happened to have been raced by famous figures. This one wasn’t raced, so it’s comparatively cheaper.
It is, however, in as-new condition, having undergone a rotisserie restoration in 2018. As noted above, it is one of three models of LX SS Hatchback in Tuxedo Black made with a manual transmission, and it still has the original 5.0-liter L31 V8 engine, though restored to stock. The carburetor, gearbox, and differential are also original, as is the interior in Slate Black Golf Ball trim.
The exterior has the A9X option with flares, hood scoop, chrome bumpers, and widened A9X-style GTS wheels. For residents of New South Wales, Australia, the Torana comes with custom number plates, SS L31 – a lovely touch for a true connaisseur.
Now on its second owner, the car comes with factory-installed radio, cassette player, and dealer-fitted AC, though the latter is not installed. A letter of verification from GMH is included, as is the original dealer sticker. The listing makes no mention of how many miles it has on the clock, but photos show almost 97,000 km (60,273 miles). For all the above, the asking price is AU$185,000, which is roughly US$145,600.
