Description:

From its humble beginnings as a 1.1 litre badge-engineered version of the Vauxhall Viva through to the awesome 5.0 litre V8 A9X variant, Holden`s Torana was one of the most unique models produced by General Motors anywhere in the world. How many other manufacturers ultimately offered 4, 6 and 8 cylinder engines in the same body shell? While the German prestige marques are doing it in the 21st century, GM`s little Australian outpost was covering all bases in the 1970s!



A great sequel to Monaro Magic, Torana Tough features 304 pages of history, great images and full details on paint, trim and options..
