With the popularity of the Torana SL Hatchback soaring to new heights, this super tidy 1978 UC Torana SL Hatch in Flamenco Red could be just the go for the Torana Hatchback enthusiast. Running a 202 6 cylinder engine believed to be original with mild cam, Holley carby and headers through to a M20 4 speed manual gearbox and 3.36 ratio diff.
On the exterior the paintwork is very, very good with only a couple of minor blemishes. It has had a good quality respray approximately 5 years ago and is set off nicely with those restored rare 14 x 8" V4 Simmons three piece racing wheels and new tyres. The owner has rechromed the front and rear bumper bars, replaced the rear trailing arm and diff housing bushes, replaced upper and lower control arm bushes and bolts, serviced all brakes and wheel bearings and installed a new speedo cable assembly. A battery cutoff and ignition immobiliser have also been fitted.
The engine bay is clean and detailed and there are no oil leaks. She runs smooth and strong and is super reliable. And with the Radial Tuned Suspension and race tuned A9X floor pan, the UC drives and handles better than the LH or LX Toranas that pre-dated the UC. Recent works include an excellent period correct re-trim to the interior and new headlining.
While not perfect, this UC Torana SL is a very good example and always attracts attention on the few times it gets driven. Full QLD registration with 78 TUC plates and roadworthy included for QLD buyer. Brisbane, QLD car. (Ref: 5363)
