Management Material: 1977 Holden Torana LX SL/R + Mid-resto Monaro GTS

February 15, 2017

Back in August 2016 me and Dad have a chance meeting with a lovingly restored 253-powered Holden Torana SL/R. The Torana has always been a prime candidate for a Street Machine makeover, or made to resemble the more desirable L34 or A9X optioned variants.

This Torana sedan was built in 1977. It has a 4,142cc V8 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
