Million-dollar, race-winning Holden Torana A9X for sale

Few Australian racing cars can claim a history as rich as this Torana, having won the 1979 Australian Touring Car Championship while up against Peter Brock.

A Holden Torana race car with a prestigious history of motorsport in Australia is up for sale.

One of the few Holden racing cars of the 1970s and 80s to defeat the legendary Peter Brock, this Torana A9X Group C was one of two vehicles to race and win the Australian Touring Car Champion (ATCC) in 1979.

The vehicle also has the honour of being raced in period by international racing greats Derek Bell, Dieter Quester, Johnny Rutherford, Janet Guthrie, as well as Australia’s own Bob Morris.

The Torana is finished in the same green, white, and blue livery designed by Bob Morris, just as the car was when it finished its final race in the early 1980s.
