1972 LJ GTR XU1 Torana Replica 253 V8 ... (SOLD)

How good is this? A genuine 2 door LJ Torana running a Holden V8 and Aussie 4 speed gearbox. For sale in Brisbane, Qld and looking for offers over $69,500.

One can only imagine that this might have been what Holden pictured as the successor to the triple Stromberg fed LJ XU-1 - the Torana GTR XU-1 V8.

The Holden Dealer Team developed a 300 bhp (224 kW; 304 PS), 308ci V8-powered version of the GTR XU-1, which raced in Sports Sedan racing in the hands of Brock and Colin Bond. The car was extensively road tested by HDT racing boss Harry Firth and young team engineer/driver Larry Perkins, but the car never made it past the prototype stage because of the political pressure placed on the big three manufacturers during the 'supercar scare' of 1972.

Well, the punters might have missed out in 1972, but you don't have to. For sale is an original 1972 LJ “S” 2 door Torana now an XU-1 Replica running a Queensland complied and registered Holden 253 V8 and M21 4 speed. The motor is balanced and runs a big cam, head work and a 4 barrel Rochester carby, Pacemaker extractors and a brand new 2 1/2" exhaust through to the rear.

All work has been carried out professionally and on a rust free beautiful body. The Torana is freshly painted in Orchid Metallic and features a genuine GTR interior with front SAAS touring seats, a GTR steering wheel, GTR XU-1 stickers and badging and a reconditioned front end, brakes and new boot and door rubbers.

Riding on original Globe Sprintmaster mags with new Powermax 205/60/13 tyres this little Torana runs and drives perfectly, has awesome power and sounds tough.

The LJ has been correctly braced for the V8 conversion and has been Queensland blue plated so can be registered in any state. Located in Brisbane Qld. Seeking offers over $69,500. (Ref: 5832)
