Are you a collector of cars? If so, do you buy muscle cars? There are so many different muscle cars that people like, and so you have many choices. If you are looking to buy a muscle car for your collection, the Holden Torana car is a great choice. The name of the car literally means ‘to fly.’ Therefore, it’s not just about the power but the fact that this car flies. Can you imagine being behind the wheel of a classic Torana?
If you’re into collecting these awesome cars and would like a LOT more information on them, I suggest you join the best Holden fan club that I could find here, AcTtoranaClub.org.
When you buy a Holden Torana muscle car, there are different choices in regards to the year. The car was made from 1967 to 1980. If you are wanting a muscle car, you aren’t going to want to get the earlier versions of the vehicle. The reason for that is the manufacturer at first released a compact vehicle. In other words, the 1967 version isn’t really known for being a muscle car. It only had four cylinders for one thing.
It should also be mentioned that the company did continue to make four cylinder versions of the Torana. Therefore, just because you find a 1977 Torana doesn’t mean that it’s going to be an 8 cylinder model. You need to be sure first that you are looking at buying the version of the Torana you want. Prior to 1969, everything made by the company was four cylinders, and then they started making Torana vehicles with 6 cylinders.
It wasn’t until 1974 that the company started making Torana vehicles with 8 cylinders. They only made them from 1974 to 1977, so keep that in mind if you are wanting the 8 cylinder version. However, just because you want to collect a Torana doesn’t mean you need the 8 cylinder version, unless you’re only interested in those models. There are plenty of 6 cylinder and 4 cylinder models that are quite impressive.
Perhaps you want to look at pictures of some of the models and the features. It would be a good idea to know which Torana models are favored by collectors. You are also going to see some of the later models called the Holden Sunbird. There are some pretty sweet Torana concept cars, too. For example, there is the Torana GTR-X.
As you can imagine, some of the Torana vehicles are harder to find than others. Take your time to look around to see which one of them you might want to collect. Perhaps you want to buy more than one. Maybe you used to drive a Torana vehicle, and you want to get one for old time’s sake. It could be that you own one already, and you want to collect another one, too.
Now that you know a little more about the Holden Torana vehicles, it is time to look at which car or cars will fit your collection. It might be the best sports car you own. It would be nice to have a Holden Torana completely restored and ready to hit the road, to ‘fly.’
