With most car enthusiasts, the legendary Torana A9X remains the ultimate Aussie muscle car ever produced by Holden, which is highly sought after by all collectors and car enthusiasts as one of the most iconic Aussie muscle cars built on our home soil. Which also bares an Aboriginal name (Torana) which means to FLY and this particular model sure did that by being a podium winner for consecutive years at Mount Panorama in the Bathurst 1000. This history making machine may have been a slower seller of the mid 70s due to 4door sedans which were in high demand at the time, with only 100 available in the hatch version they were certainly going to become a classic collectors item as they sure have.

During 1977 the LX series Torana was introduced to the market with a performance package, A9X Option which was available on the 5.0-litre V8-powered SLR 5000 sedan and SS hatchback models. The A9X visually resembled the L34-optioned LH model, but with the addition of a rear-facing bonnet scoop designed to increase airflow into the engine bay (carburettor) to produce maximum power in motor racing applications. The A9X package varied from the old L34 in road form in that whilst the engine was not modified, the A9X nevertheless had some special mechanical features such as rear disc brakes, heavy-duty axles, and a heavy-duty 10 bolt differential.

After being rushed into Group C touring car racing by Peter Brocks HDT team, gave the A9X a dream debut at Sandown Raceway in 1977 outright winner but wasnt so lucky at the Bathurst 1000 for that year. The A9X was soon refined by HDT and proved dominant during the following two seasons of touring-car racing in Australia. Peter Brock was victorious in the 1978 and 1979 Australian Touring Car Championships and Bathurst 1000s . In a show of the A9Xs superiority, Brock and Richards won the 1979 Bathurst 1000 race by a record six laps, with Brock setting the touring-car lap record on the last lap of the race and being labelled KING OF THE MOUNTAIN.

Now on offer is this remarkable Torana A9X Hatch sold by Miall-Phillips Motors NSW with rich history and great provenance, classified as an unmolested rust-free example thanks to the 1st owner that ticked the box to have the vehicle treated for rust prevention from the Dealership by a company called (End Rust) back in 1978 also in that year was the greatest highlight for the 1st owner which he had the privilege of driving Miss Universe Australia to her wedding, with only an external re-spray in its period correct Acrylic paint over 25years ago due to the general ware and tear over the years still represents as a classic survivor. Now a 3rd owner vehicle, which has been well looked after and preserved by all custodians which still presents in stunning condition, also quoted as one of the greatest A9Xs that still remain on our roads today by the A9X Torana Owners Association of Australia. Guesstimated by the (A9X TOAA) that only 50% of A9X hatchs throughout Australia still survive making this particular vehicle among the rarest Aussie classics. Presented in Jasmine Yellow with contrasting Slate Black vinyl trim and all matching numbers (L31) 308 V8, M21 4speed manual gear box and 3.08:1 diff retaining all its original glass, rare brake air ducts, Log books / owners manual, all service history GMH Authenticity Letter, Warranty card and magazine featured articles, ridding on its original day one A9X wheels with codes visible on all rims including spare wheel in boot plus the bonus HATCH HUTCH in its original case stored away in the boot. Despite this vehicle spending 27years of its existence in a Sydney storage unit by the previous owner mechanically was in great working order and the interior presentation still stands as day one condition. Whilst the current owner decided to have the whole drive train meticulously overhauled with all its genuine components without the interfering with all the factory decals was brought back to road worthy standards. Now this Lion is ready to roar like it did around Mount Panorama or just simply camp up with the available hatch hutch (tent) accessory for the next owner to now enjoy.
