My LH SL/R5000

Here's some pics of one of my other toys (they're not all vans Wink )

It's a 1974 LH Torana SL/R 5000, it's painted it's factory colour of Barbados green which is one of my favourite factory colours.

The interior is factory original except for a CD player and some additional gauges, all easily removed if needed to be returned to stock.

The driveline consists of the original 308 which has been rebuilt by Shanes race engines and makes just under 400HP, Top Loader gearbox and 3.5 LSD nine inch. I've got the original gearbox and diff should it ever need to be returned to original.

It runs HQ cross drilled brakes on the front and HQ stud pattern all round. Has a drop tank and has a nice exhaust note you can usually here it coming. It runs 15x8 and 15x10 Simmons rims.

A few of you guys have already seen it in the flesh as I had it at the Bathurst van nats and had a great time even though it's not the most economical thing to drive.

At the van nats.

One pole position at Bathurst at night.

Monday after the nats cutting laps of the track.

On the way home.
