The mildly facelifted LX series arrived in February 1976. Cosmetically, the most obvious changes were to replace the LH’s rectangular headlights with round headlights, side window surrounds were changed from body colour to black, and the front Holden badge was enlarged. A two-door hatchback body was introduced as an alternative to the four-door sedan, although the 1,897-cc Opel unit was not offered in the new body style. During 1977, the LX series also had the development of another limited-build high-performance option aimed at winning in Australian Touring Car racing, and in particular at the annual Bathurst 1000 touring car race. This ‘A9X Option’ was available on the 5.0-litre V8-powered SLR 5000 sedan and SS hatchback models.
The Hatchback Torana is definitely a hero amongst Holden lovers and this car we present to you is just waiting for that very person!! With a rebuild only being finished within the last six months this beautiful Torana is ready for plenty of summertime cruising!! The bare metal prepared body is finished in Papaya Orange with gloss blackouts with A9X flares, spoilers and bonnet scoop give this Torana a great appearance. Additional to that is the genuine three-piece staggered Simmons wheels and period correct drop tank. The interior on this Torana has also been totally refurbished with everything from the dash fascia, seats, steering wheel and carpets all replaced with new items. A new rubber kit was also installed. The car still also retains all of its original glass too. Everything works just as it should also. The engine is a mild 308 which runs beautifully and is backed by a Supra five speed manual gearbox and finally a standard diff. Delivering the noise from the classic V8 is an all new stainless steel twin system. If you are in the market for a classic Holden summer cruiser, contact Muscle Car Warehouse today.
