1974 HOLDEN LJ TORANA GTR - 61,133KM! - $139999
Attention collectors and investors. This is special.
Yes. 61,133 KM in 47 years. A Genuine 1974 0/1 LJ GTR in MUSTARD and BLACK interior. Matching numbers and all tags in place. Motor never touched aside from regular scheduled maintenance regardless of mileage covered. Original down to its 'gentle' patina. So special we photographed it as it has come from the owner with no detail. Interior is in excellent condition with only the drivers seat showing any appreciable wear and in our opinion it should stay that way. Note the original PIONEER 8 track speakers on the rear parcel shelf!
The backstory of the car's life is worth sharing to give true context. A reflection of a young Adelaide man who at the age of 19 walked into Freeman Motors in Adelaide, saw this GTR and paid a $50 deposit to secure his dream. The car was built in January '74 and travelled approx 24000km according to the receipt before it went late in '74 to its second only owner who has now decided to allow someone to be the new custodian after nearly five decades. It has covered just over 42000km whilst in his care.
If you were writing a screenplay of long haired youth in the mid 70's listening to Led Zeppelin, THIS is the hero character and his mates the supporting cast with the GTR on the poster. The tin 'shed' at home was not deemed worthy enough so he constructed a 'proper' brick garage for his beloved GTR.
These guys lived and breathed everything the 70's is now so revered for. Our owner was a civil designer and his mates worked at Aunger (alloy wheels). Summertime, any given weekend and Christmas would see a convoy of Toranas, Monaros and Falcon GTs heading for Caloote near Mannum on the mighty Murray with Camero ski boats and 44 gallon drums of fuel in tow. One wonders the stories that could be told...
We have an extensive collection of images of the paperwork from the original sales receipts to maintenance and regular purchase of Castrol GTX oil ("OILS AIN'T OILS".) Please note a "copy" of the important sales receipts and the original actual OWNERS MANUAL etc will be included with purchase of the car.
If ever we have offered a car that deserves to go to a 'good home'... THIS is it.
More than just a car. More than just a GTR Torana. A man's dream and his near five decade commitment.
Given our recent sales trends we suggest not to hesitate if seriously interested in this vehicle.
