Product Code: A72576
Manufacturer: Biante Model Cars
When you’re hot, you’re hot. That was one of the many famous advertising lines used by Holden to describe the mighty little LJ Torana and many people would agree that it was a pretty spot on description.
Introduced around Febuary of 1972, the LJ Torana was a face lifted version of the previous LC model. Many of the mechanical components were shared with the LC but the major difference with the LJ was the choice in engines. While variations of four and six cylinder versions were available, it was the six cylinder 3300 engine (otherwise known as the 202) which could produce in excess of 200 brake horsepower that was fitted in the GTR XU-1 that turned the most heads. This combined with larger carburettors and a close ratio 4-speed transmission gave the LJ the necessary tools to seriously challenge the mighty Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III at Bathurst, which was all that really mattered.
The mantra back in the day was success on track equaled successful sales, and there was no bigger success than a victory at Bathurst with all of Australia watching. Holden had quite a bit riding on the lighter LJ Torana in the hopes that the nimble package could put an end to the dominant Ford GTHO era. At the 1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500, with a young racing car driver at the wheel by the name of Peter Brock, the LJ was driven to a glorious victory, dominating the heavier GTHO’s and forming the foundations of two legendary names in Australian motor sport, the Holden Torana and Peter Brock.
Sales success for the LJ quickly became apparent with Holden producing over 80,000 models in various forms, with the GTR XU-1 being the most sought after and revered. With it’s gorgeous range of colours, sporty looks and racing pedigree, the GTR XU-1 is easily one of Australia’s most favourite cars.
