One word comes to mind. Spectacular! Not only is this LC GTR Torana a 10/10 restoration, but this car embodies the very essence of Aussie ingenuity, shoe horning a large size sedan engine into a light weight agile sports car. This little beauty became the Torana legend under the direction of Harry Firth and in the hands of racers such as Brock, Bond and Holland
This genuine 4th month 1971 Silver Mist LC GTR Torana has been concours bare metal rotisserie nut and bolt restored, completed in 2020. The original 161S and Opel 4 speed have been upgraded to a fully rebuilt 173S spec engine with a re-conditioned M20 4 speed gearbox. And there's the correct twin barrel Stromberg carburetor and complete headers to muffler exhaust system.
The brakes have been fully rebuilt including reconditioned brake/clutch pedal box assembly, booster, master cylinder and all new brake lines. The fuel system has new fuel lines, sender unit and reconditioned tank. The rebuild also included the driveline, steering, suspension and a detailed undercarriage.
Inside the car has been fully re-trimmed and restored with nothing left untouched including new seat foam, front seat base springs, parcel shelf and a meticulous dash cluster restoration.
The wiring loom has been restored front to back. All body and door rubbers have been renewed. Basically, everything has been restored or replaced.
The odometer indicates 11,054 miles and the GTR has travelled approximately 1,000 miles since it’s restoration.
This is a first rate LC GTR meticulously restored and presented with nothing to spend. This is a fully sorted GTR ready to be enjoyed. Jump behind the wheel, blip the throttle and you'll fully understand the meaning of the catchy Torana slogan - When you're Hot, You're Hot.
