The L34 option, which was first seen in 1975, proved to be fast and successful, yet fragile, in Australian touring car racing. It was eventually superseded by the evolutionary A9X option made available in the LX Torana series in 1977. The A9X was delivered with a standard 5.0 but used the L34 motor in races which was developed by Repco for the LH SL/R 5000 H.O. L34. The A9X version of the Torana had a larger 10-bolt Salisbury differential with disc brakes and had the option of the Borg Warner Super T10 four-speed. Hardly any cars were delivered with Super T10 option, so in effect the immortalized A9X was a pretty stock car with a better differential and suspension. The LH Torana in L34 form won the Bathurst 1000 touring car race with Peter Brock and Brian Sampson in 1975 and with Bob Morris and John Fitzpatrick in 1976, with the L34 motor being fitted to the A9X, so in effect winning with that car, as well.
Muscle Car Warehouse are proud to bring to the market this lovely L34 Holden LH Torana. Built in July of 1974 and finished in striking Chrome Yellow. The paintwork has been re done at some stage and still presents nicely with only minor signs of wear and tear. Sitting on the genuine style wheels which have been tastefully widened to give this hero Holden that little extra appeal. A set of genuine V5 three-piece Simmons are available with the car by negotiation. The interior is mostly original and still in good condition for its age with the only addition being two aftermarket gauges. Under the bonnet is a 308 “HZ” engine still featuring its original dizzy, twin coils, headers and with upgrades such as a Holley 650 double pumper carburettor and a solid lifter cam. Behind that is the original gearbox and diff. This L34 is believed to have had only four owners with the current owner since 2016. Includes original L34 supplement and Holden Historical Services paperwork. This beautiful L34 Torana is now available by appointment only or via video call at our Kogarah facility.
