Old style fan venetians

Finally got the LC finished to a stage that I'm happy with. The finishing touch was finding a pair of old style venetian fan shades which cleaned up really well. The irony is that I found them amongst my late fathers possessions, and remember telling him 20+ years ago to bin them because they looked old fashioned...I'm glad he ignored me and kept them.

LC Torana SL - now with 2850S

Finally got around to getting the 2850S installed; WW twin barrel Stromberg rebuilt whilst the factory headers are blended into a slightly larger diameter stainless system exiting via a KTG 186S muffler with a LC-LJ style tailpipe.
Still sounds stock, looks stock, but much nicer to drive now. Even gets a sweet induction roar when you give it the berries. More pics in the shed...

Early LC Torana chassis number

Greetings oh wise ones..

I have ended up with what appears to be an LC GTR, but with a few issues....
The only identifier is a chassis number of LC21044, stamped on the RHS shock tower.
There is no evidence of cutting and rewelding or other butchery of this tower. There are no other tags
remaining on the vehicle, there is no VIN number.I believe it be an early LC hence no vin.
The engine number is a non matching 186 out of a HR.

My perusal of "VIN identifiers" on the net have drawn a blank because... drum roll.. there is no VIN as
such.

Cracked XU1 block

Image: 

Ben,

You should be able to see the cracks pretty easily in this pic? I definitely wont be throwing the block out! I think I will store it in a drum of oil because who knows, maybe one day a crack like this might be easily repaired? A few experts have told me that at the moment it isn't unfortunately.

Update on the LC 'XU1'

Image: 

Hi guys!

You may remember my thread from a couple months ago regarding the LC my father was looking at?

http://oldholden.com...

Well, after some great advice from the Old Holden crew the old man and I decided that the car is not an XU1 but still managed to decided on an appropriate price and we bought the car home that night. All was good and work was well underway to get the car road registered until the perished head gasket removal revealed a cracked block... BUGGER!

LC LJ GTR XU1

Just my two cents worth...

Another difference between 6 cyl two door S (82311) SL (82611) and a genuine GTR/XU1 (82911) is the spare tyre mounting arrangement in the boot. Most "S" and "SL" models should have two brackets on the boot floor next to the wheel well as in the pic above.

Genuine GTR and XU1 should only have one bracket (the smaller bracket closest to the rear of the car). These cars had the spare lying almost flat on the floor next to the fuel tank. The exception to this rule is if an "S" or "SL" was optioned with rally wheels and 70 profile tyres from the factory, which would have then been fitted with the GTR arrangement.

Possible LC XU1?

Hi guys,

As much as I don’t want to be one of those guys who asks the question "Is my car an XU1" and the reply is "Check your plates!", I have hit a brick wall and need some help. I have been tasked with finding a car for my old man for some time now. Preferably an LJ Torana in either 4 or 2 door but I have come across something a little different and he is definitely interested.

It's an LC 2 door with XU1 flutes, rear spoiler, 'Bathurst' fuel tank, brake booster, GTR dash and a couple of other bits and pieces. It has been a race car at some stage of its life as its been fitted with triple Delortto's, big cam and a roll cage but the interior has now been restored to match the original black vinyl by the current owner.
