YOUNG BLOOD

NZV8 - - IN THE BUILD -

Tommy Welch was just 19 when he started the build of his ’75 Holden To­rana. Now, three years on, it’s easy to see where all the work has gone. With a To­rana-lov­ing boss, there was never a chance that the car would be any­thing but tough, and it’s cer­tainly not lack­ing in that depart­ment now, thanks to plenty of late nights’ work. A 357ci small block has been built with plenty of good bits and will send power to the nar­rowed and braced nine-inch diff via a TH350 trans­mis­sion. The car’s pas­sen­ger-car­ry­ing days are over; in the rear, now, are a mas­sive pair of tubs to cover the 315-wide rear rub­ber. With QA1 coilovers and Wil­wood brakes, the car should han­dle all the pun­ish­ment that it’s set to re­ceive when it hits the road later this year.
