1978 HOLDEN TORANA UC for sale

Price: $24,990
It was never going to be easy following in the foot steps of the LX Torana. Especially after Brockie took out the Bathurst 1000 by 6 laps and set a lap record on his final lap. But to add insult to injury, Holden decided with the UC to drop the V8 engine and delete the famous SL/R brand name. You could buy a 1892cc 4 cylinder Starfire Sunbird or opt for a 2835cc or 3298cc six cylinder SL Torana. And while the engine offerings may have been disappointing to some, the fact that the UC model featured Radial Tuned Suspension and a race tuned A9X floor pan certainly made for a more refined drive versus the older LH and LX Toranas.

Even though 55,000 UC Toranas were built, finding a good UC Torana in UNRESTORED condition is now near impossible. In Panama Green with Chamois trim this SURVIVOR UC is a museum quality treasure. For sale from Melbourne, VIC.

Originally built at the Holden plant in Dandenong, Victoria this UC Torana has obviously led a charmed life. This little ripper Torana still features the factory Panama Green acrylic paint with minor touch ups around the body and with totally original paint in the engine bay, boot and door jambs. All glass and chrome is day one and is in impressive condition with dealer fitted over riders and mud flaps still in place. The Torana has also been rust proofed from new.

On the inside, the Chamois trim is all day one and in perfect condition including the original seat coverings, door cards and hood lining. The carpets have been replaced and there is a small crack in the crashpad but otherwise the interior is in perfect condition. All gauges work and the UC features a working clock and heated rear window.

Mechanically, the UC features the matching numbers 3.3 Litre 6 cylinder engine, Trimatic auto and factory 3.08:1 diff. This is a low mileage well maintained example. The engine has never been removed from the car and this little Torana is a super reliable drive anywhere car. The current owner has recently replaced the radiator and the water pump. All suspension is original with original GMH ball joints.

The quality continues into the boot with the original boot matt, spare wheel and factory tools still in their place.

The UC is riding on the factory steel 13" rims with the factory hub caps and brand new tyres.

This is a great opportunity to complete your Torana collection with an excellent original example of the last of the Torana models.

Located in Melbourne, VIC for your inspection. (Ref. 6374)
