    Hatchback torana

    Found this for sale. Comes with an LS1 and T56 manual. (I will sell the gearbox and look for a TH350/400) The plan is to turn it into an LH/X and install aircon etc for a nice street car. The body is straight with very minimal rust. Just need to choose a body colour for it

    Nice, fair whack of work to put LH tail lights in them. I had one of these years ago, love them. The interior is worlds ahead of the LH/X.

    I reckon spray it the original green with black outs. Was it Barbados green?

        Yeah dude, this is my third torana. First hatchback though. Yeah green is the original colour. I have got the tail light buckets to weld in the rear, but I would rather weld in the whole rear section.

          Floor pan is mint! Still has the original paint there, no rust. The engine bay has a lot of severe surface rust, but not a big deal to fix. At this stage I am thinking of smoothing the engine bay and shaving the chassis rails. (torana chassis rails overhang and have a lip)

            Honestly, I wouldn't bother. The UC looks cool IMO.

            EDIT: nek minit - never mind. Seems you're keen with the grinder :D

                    How do the LS motors go fitment wise? Pipes a cunt?

                      Hahaha yeah, the old supercheap grinder gets a work out. I got straight in and unstitched the rad support panel. Next is to unstitch the inner guards, as unfortunately they have a different profile where they meet the guards. I could make a patch panel, but I have guards so will do it properly.

                          Yeah that is the plan. At this stage I even want to paint it an original holden colour.

                            Fitment wise they are not too bad. Pipes are a cunt, and the fan box will probably need shaving down to clear back of head.

                              I remember a LH SLR 5000 hatch with flares in kermit green with full blackouts on the cover of Street Machine in about 1993. Fuck it looked good. If you are going this far I say do the flare kit as well. 15x8s and 15x10s.
