Went to buy a HQ and came home with a HB

Was too late to get the HQ I had wanted to look at (3hrs away), it sold as I was on my way to check it out which was a bit disappointing. Totally my fault as I had to delay the viewing, anyway when I got the message I pulled over. Thought it was worth seeing what else was out there as I had a bit of cash on me and the trailer hooked up.
Found this.
Unrestored 1967 HB Torana S with what looks to be a genuine 27K Miles on the clock.
Everything works, even the interior light.
Have a plan for it but thought it was worth putting up a couple of pics. Don't see many of these....

Nice score. Is that the same green that was on the HG’s? What’s the name of it?

You’re thinking of Oasis Green that was on LC Torana’s and HG’s.

I reckon the HB Torana green would be the same as the HR Finisterre green of the same year.

That is a "69" model, so was built between 10/68 and 8/69 so would be either HK or HT depending on the trim code on the tag.

Will check the code when I get back to it later on, inclined to think it would come out of the same can as the HR. The grill definitely shares some of HR traits. Also has disk brakes up front

All HRs are rust free. I think Al's meds are messing with his head.

Sheep are silly buggers.

Remember when they cloned a sheep? What for?? Every sheep looks the same anyway. Waste of time really.

I realise it wasn’t as green as HG but thought it might’ve been faded and needed a good buff

do you know any history of the car - anything to verify the mileage? What plans do you have - noting it's un -restored ?

Has the handbook but no service manual, so verifying the milage is impossible. My eyes tell me its a very good chance of being true. Normal wear points: rubber on the pedals, steering wheel, drivers door card, paint around ignition barrel all suggest a car that hasn't been driven. It has surface rust and a sunburnt back seat to go with a small panel repair on the drivers side front alongside the headlight. Thats how its going to stay.

My brother and I are doing the [Naughty Pottyword]box Rally next year from Perth to Sydney, sadly we can't take the mintox torry because it cost me more than $1000 so it doesn't qualify. Instead we will be selling the car as is and donating any profits to the Cancer Council.
Licensing wont be a problem after bleeding the brakes and a visit to the Wheelbarrow isle at Bunnings to find a 12 inch set of tyres.

Its looking for a new home.
