1971 HOLDEN LC TORANA GTR - $134999
The ‘LC’ was introduced in October of 1969 as the replacement to the first generation ‘HB’
Torana. While the LC range received a range of base four cylinder and six cylinder variants,
the showstoppers were the GTR and GTR XU-1, each with larger 173ci and 186ci straight-
sixes respectively. Holden Dealer Team’s then Manager, Harry Firth, saw the potential of the
smaller platform Torana and developed it for touring car racing. Foundations of the LC paved
the way for the popular LJ Torana and it’s success on the track.
This particular example is a matching numbers, 1971 dated LC Torana GTR with ‘82911’ tags
to prove. This LC is has undergone a full restoration and a complete once over, presenting
immaculately as you’d come to expect. As per factory tags, this LC is an original Cameo Gold
car with correct gloss black twin GTR stripes, bodyline stripe and lower sills. Correct detailing
is present throughout with GTR badging, finned quarters, steel wheels and centre caps.
The interior presents just as beautifully, finished in tags matching ‘Sandlewood’. While the
‘Sandlewood’ vinyl trim compliments the exterior, it is nicely contrasted by the black carpet,
centre console and dash. While the interior is quite simple in it’s design, it does retain a set of
stainless GMH belt buckles, GTR steering wheel and GTR detailing to inner door trim.
This LC runs a matching numbers 161ci straight six, mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
While not big on horsepower by today’s standards, the rev happy, carby ‘six’ does provide for
a true, authentic GTR driving experience.
If you prefer the nimble and exciting driving nature that Torana’s provide, this LC will not
disappoint. Enquire today.
