Well done for sticking with it Matt, you’re a brave man. I can see a few different cars in it.

Opel Kadett C on steroids is the easiest explanation. Its a bit bigger, more Cortina sized.

Another race car lookalike has crossed my mind, Peter Brock tribute maybe, but I like the look of the road cars.

Worthy of a story on how you found it and more importantly how you arranged to get it out of Indonesia, can't imagine that's a popular trade route!

I am very pleased for you Matt.

What you need now to complete your purchase is a genuine Owners Handbook.

I could not find a "More-Door" one, but hope this will suffice.


Happy Bidding:

Not the same model as mine, but another Torana has popped up in the UK that will be at auction for alot of money.
I suspect Australia will be its final destination.
And it is REGISTERED in 1979 before the endless arguments start! :x

That seems to be a very rare car Matt. I had no idea they were so desirable and potentially expensive. :thumbright:
