Replacing the LH Torana and released in February of 1976, the Holden Torana LX is the second iteration of the third generation of one of Australia’s favourite locally made automobiles.

Compared to its predecessor, the LX was mostly a stylistic update, and featured things like a new circular headlight design.

Customers could choose to have their LX Torana in two distinct body styles; a four-door sedan or a two-door hatchback coupe.

Power was derived from a number of different motors which included a 1.9lt inline four-cylinder, a 2.85lt and 3.3lt inline six-cylinder or a 4.2lt or 5.0lt V8.

The shove from these engines was sent to the LX’s rear wheels via either a four-speed manual or a three-speed automatic transmission.

This LX Torana is a ’76 four-door sedan and comes equipped with the 3.3lt inline six-cylinder and three-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, this LX would make a great project car and has travelled an original 286,212 kilometres from new.

The Torana is $25,000 and anyone interested in this Aussie classic can view the full listing here.
