HDT To­rana XU-1 V8 ‘Beast’

Australian Muscle Car - - News -

It was in many ways a con­ven­tional ma­chine: a fac­tory car fit­ted with an en­gine which had ac­tu­ally been in­tended to have been shoe­horned un­der the bon­net of the LJ To­rana XU-1, had it not been for the 1972 Su­per­car scare. But what makes the HDT XU-1 Sports Sedan a bit of an odd-job is the way the thing was ex­e­cuted: sur­pris­ingly un­so­phis­ti­cated for a works car and, per­haps fit­tingly, some­what rem­i­nis­cent of Brock’s A30-Holden. It re­ally was a beast.
