Torana Collector Cars
The Holden Torana, aka Torrie. It's a classic car seen up and down Aussie and Kiwi roads in the late 60's, 70's, and early 80's and is now a car for collectors. People who enjoyed a Torana in their heyday, and a new generation alike, get a kick out of renovating and souping up these two-door coupe and four-door sedans and sports models, especially the V8 versions. The word Torana, derived from an aboriginal word, means "to fly". The naming was to become fortuitous; Peter Brock's first Bathurst win was in a 1972 Holden Torana LJ GTR XU-1. For today's buyers, Toranas are a collector's car with character and hold memories of cross-country road trips for many.
Throughout the dozen or so years Holden Torana cars cars were manufactured in Australia there were six series of models released. The first HB series I and II, two-door coupes and four-door sedans, followed the basic design of the British Vauxhall Viva. The LC series was a two-door, four and six-cylinder small to medium sized car. The LJ and LX series started moving into bigger bodies and engines. The TA series were an interim release of two and four-door models until the development of the LX was completed. The LX series, the last Torana's to come off the Australian Holden production line included two and four-door models with four, six and eight-cylinder engines.
All avid car collectors need accessories to customise and make their prized possession their own. A full range of original exterior and interior parts for Holden Torana's are easy to find. If you're refitting or replacing interior features and want to keep to the real McCoy you'll find seat headrests, dash dials and knobs, ashtrays, consoles, steering wheels and more.
