1977 HOLDEN LX TORANA A9X HATCHBACK.
VALENCIA ORANGE 1 OF 3!!
During 1977, the LX series also had the development of another limited-build high-performance option aimed at winning in Australian Touring Car racing, and in particular at the annual Bathurst 1000 touring car race. This A9X Option 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 to produce maximum power in motor racing applications. The A9X package varied from the old L34 inroad 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, Peter Brock gave the A9X a dream debut by winning the 1977 Hang Ten 400 at Sandown. However, after he put his Torana on pole position, the A9X ultimately lost its debut Bathurst race in 1977 to the Ford Falcons of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond. In a show of the A9Xs superiority, Brock and Richards won the 1979 race by a record six laps, with Brock setting the touring-car lap record on the last lap of the race. If this isnt the Holy Grail of Holden Muscle Cars then we dont know what is!! Super rare A9 Hatchback finished in Valencia Orange, the first of three made in this beautiful colour. It was the 51st of the 100 examples ever produced, which makes this car incredibly rare when you think about how many still exist today. Originally built on the 28th of October 1977, the first sold exactly two months later on the 28th of December 1977, through Shacks Cockburn in Naval Base, Western Australia. Staying with the first owner until 1980 where it was believed to have been traded in at Independent Motors in Western Australia, then move on to the second private owner. It finally changed hands for the last time to the current owner on the 15th of January 1985. The car had not left Western Australia until recently when it was brought to our facility to be sold! From 1985 it remained unused until approximately 1987 in which time the car was resprayed. Due to a change of circumstance the car was deregistered in 1994, then in 2001 it was treated to a full rotisserie restoration which included a freshen up of the driveline and the interior. The car has been detailed in preparation for sale, including some paint correction and rectification of minor stone chips to the front area of the car. The car still retains all of its original fibreglass flares, rear spoiler, bonnet scoop and original plastic front spoiler and plastic brake ducts. Rarely do such cars become available, so now is your chance to secure a very significant piece of Australian Muscle Car history. Now available by appointment only in our Kogarah facility or do not hesitate to contact one of our friendly staff via phone or email for more information.
