LH TORANA L34
We were lucky enough to own a genuine L34 Bathurst race car and were looking for some parts when we were doing some historic racing. So I rang up this bloke and went out to his shed and checked out all these diffs and other bits he had and said I’ll have them. Sitting next to them was this car under a cover. He wound this cover back and we were gobsmacked. This thing was absolutely schmick. I walked away with all those parts for the race car and I said to Anna, “I’ve got to buy that car. I’ve never seen one that was so untouched in my life. So by the end of the day we’d done the deal.”
The bloke had bought that car because it reminded him of one he had raced back in 1974.
They’re Holden’s version of the HO muscle car. They had the race engine, manifold, exhaust, the big brakes and wheels. They ticked every box. There’s no doubt they were the ultimate racerin that period, because they had everything you needed.
My advice for anyone looking for an L34 is to ensure the car has known histor y. If it ain’t got histor y, it ain’t the real McCoy.
