This 1975 Holden Torana has been neatly restored and turned into an LX SLR5000 tribute. The car has been with the current owner for several years having purchased it from Melbourne. The car was a super tidy survivor quality example having been garaged its whole live and only had 12,890 kms on it.

The advantage of starting with such a good car is that it didn’t require any rust repairs. The body was pulled apart though and the A9X style flares and body kit added along with the LX specific items. It was then professionally repainted in arguably the best factory colour for these cars, Barbados Green with SLR5000 black outs in gloss black. The chrome bumpers were refinished and the bonnet hinges and door catches have been zinc coated. Completing the look on the outside is a set of period, 15” hotwire wheels.

Inside the car has been refinished in black. The carpets are all new and the seats are covered in black velour and vinyl. There is a SLR dash with full woodgrain trim to the dash, door trims and console. For tunes while cruising there is a Pioneer head unit with 6” front speakers, 6×9” rear speakers and an Alpine amplifier in the boot.

Under the bonnet is a rebuilt 308ci V8 engine that received some mild upgrades. The engine was bored 0.030 over with Hypatec pistons, mild cam, L34 heads, Yella Terra roller rockers, high volume oil pump, Edelbrock manifold and 650 Holley carburettor. Spark is provided by an MSD ignition and distributor. Exhaust gasses escape through a 2 ½” twin exhaust system and cooling is aided by twin thermo fans. The engine is paired to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission upgraded with a stage 2 shift kit and rebuilt by Wodonga Transmissions. Power is fed to the rear wheels through a nine-inch diff with LSD centre and 3.5 gears. The suspension is upgraded with King springs and Monroe shocks and all of the steering components, ball joints, tie rod ends and bushes were replaced.

The car has been mod plated and previously registered in QLD. These widebody SLR Torana’s are cool Aussie muscle cars and this is a neat example finished in a desirable colour combination. Be sure to register and bid if you want to see this one parked in your garage.
