1979 Brock/Richards To­rana

Australian Muscle Car - - Top 25: Bathurst liveries -

Marl­boro-

backed cars al­ways grabbed at­ten­tion, but for some rea­son the can­cer-stick brand’s logo trans­ferred to the A9X bet­ter than to the four-door. If Brock’s 1978 and 1979 To­ranas are con­sid­ered the ul­ti­mate Aus­tralian mus­cle car tech­ni­cal pack­age (big V8 in a compact hatch), then they also had vis­ual pres­ence. The fact Marl­boro’s red mir­rored GM-H’s main cor­po­rate colour means this was a match made in Holden heaven.
