The Holden Torana is a mid-sized car manufactured by Holden from 1967 to 1980. The name comes from an Aboriginal word meaning “to fly”.

The first Torana was released in 1967 and was a four-cylinder compact vehicle with origins in the British Vauxhall Vivas of the mid 1960s.

In Australia Holden released the LJ Torana GTR XU-1, with performance-enhanced drivetrain and handling. From this time through to the release of the Holden Commodore, the Torana remained as Holden’s most successful sport vehicle, with many victories garnered in rallying and circuit racing.

In February 1972, the face-lifted LJ Torana was introduced with the six-cylinder models now visually associated with the larger Holden HQ series. There were many mechanical components shared with the LC, with the major changes limited to the choice of engines.

The 3300 engine was adopted as the engine for the LJ Torana GTR sedan with a total of 81,813 LJ Toranas were built by Holden in Australia, with some exported to New Zealand.
