Owning a 1977 HOLDEN TORANA SS A9X
Last April we raffled off a 1-OF-1 print for charity at the Machines & Macchiato’s meet in Clontarf NSW.
The lucky winner was the owner of this stunning
1977 HOLDEN TORANA SS A9X.
From a design perspective, for us there’s nothing better to illustrate than a period correct car – and this beast is straight from the 80s!
Since he was a kid, George has always been into Muscle cars.
He has owned XY Falcon GT’s, Cobra’s and of course Holden’s.
He purchased this 77 SS A9X Torana about 10 years ago and did a full restoration which took about 2 years.
Body, Motor, Gearbox, Diff Suspension, Interior – the works.
These days it’s bloody hard to find a good rust free Torana Hatchback and in George’s eyes, this one is now complete. When I asked him what he would change if he had his time over again?
“Absolutely Nothing, to me it’s perfect it’s 80’s and all period correct Like Simmons wheels and 345 Pirelli’s Recaro seats and an awesome stance (perfect)”
It’s interesting as his mates from the The Grand Tourer Muscle Car Club and A9X Torana club of Australia give him heaps about his exhausts – they reckon they are too small… what do you think?
Thanks heaps for sharing your story George – we think your car is awesome the car just the way it is, enjoy your 1-OF-1 print.
