AMC high­lights 25 no­table A9X race­cars that live on to­day. Our list in­cludes some sur­viv­ing GMP&A race A9Xs, up­graded L34s and ve­hi­cles that raced at Bathurst as A9Xs but were built out of hum­ble To­rana hatches.

When it comes sur­vivors from the golden era of pro­duc­tion­based tour­ing car rac­ing, A9X To­ranas are seem­ingly over-rep­re­sented. More A9Xs with Bathurst and ATCC his­tory live on to­day – be they hatch­backs or sedans – than any other fa­mous mus­cle car name­plate from the 1960s and ‘70s. Our list in­cludes ve­hi­cles from the 33-strong b atch of holier than holy GMP&A chas­sis. Then there are L34s that were up­graded to A9X sedan specs. And we’ve heard sto­ries about a car that raced in pe­riod as an A9X that started life as a hum­ble four­cylin­der Sun­bird! Who knows, it might be one of the cars on our list. If true, that’s cer­tainly a Sun­bird on steroids. This is not meant to be de­fin­i­tive list of A9Xs, moreso a cat­a­logue of in­ter­est­ing sur­vivors.
