LH TORANA 3300
Ialways liked them and had wanted one pretty much since I was 15 and bought it when I was 17. That car was a bit sad and I replaced it with this one. This was bought from the original owner 10 years ago. It’s a 202 with Trimatic. It’s basically had new tyres and a few new ancillaries like water pump and thermostat. That’s it. It gets a lot of attention because it’s different and in original condition. A lot of people look at it as a reference car. It’s done quite a few interstate trips and is known as ‘Poopy’ in the Torana world.
It’s even a little bit famous, because it appeared in the Molly Meldrum TV bio.
I was looking in the classifieds for a ute and spotted this at an unbelievable price. I went up to Ballarat and had a look – it’s originally from NSW – and bought it on the spot.
It goes well on the freeway, but is a bit heav y around town. We recently did a 4000km round trip in a week and it didn’t miss a beat.
My advice for someone wanting to buy one: get in before they get too expensive.
RIGHT Simple but effective 202 red motor.
TOP RIGHT Katrina Holland is getting max value out of her car.
