Holden’s LC Torana GTR XU-1 may be the local hero, but don’t count out its gentler little brother, the LC Torana GTR, which had plenty of competition chops of its own.

Weighing in at just 1018 kilograms, the GTR’s lithe and athletic frame supported a big two-barrel Kingswood in-line six, which put out 125bhp and made it a manoeuvrable little rocket.

It was an extremely competitive package, and was instrumental in launching the early careers of legendary racers Peter Brock and Dick Johnson. Find out how in Holden LC Torana GTR: Born to Fly! at the Shannons Club.
