1977 LX SS Torana A9X Hatchback (SOLD)

The most enduring memory for many Aussie Muscle car enthusiasts is Brocky pounding around Mount Panorama in 1979, in the Marlboro HDT A9X Torana Hatchback, six laps in the lead, hanging the rear end out through McPhillamy whilst waving to the cheering crowd as he set a new lap record on the last lap to win the Bathurst 1000 great race.

And ALL A9X Toranas have this same blood line pulsing through their veins. A little bit of Bathurst, Brocky and good old Aussie determination all wrapped up in one bloody sexy Hatchback motor car.

Only 405 A9X Toranas were made for the road, 305 4 door sedans, and 100 Hatchbacks, to homologate the new rear floor pan and 4 wheel disc brakes for Bathurst. Making the A9X Hatchback amongst the rarest Aussie muscle cars ever made. Of the 100 Hatchbacks produced, best guestimates today believe that only 50 to 60 still survive.

And you'd be hard pressed to find a better, more original and more complete example than this car.
