Finding insurance for 1974 Torana

Try Lumley Special Vehicles or Vigil, they're two other companies that insure classic and modified cars. I can't comment on your driving record, that's for them to decide of the basis of risk.

Heirloom Vehicle

ONLY if it has sentimental value. The Torana is not a highly prized collector car, and would be worth only $1000 or so at most.

Selling torana

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Nov 2006

IT'S hard to put a price on it because it's not a model that's highly sought after by collectors. The value is in its originality and condition. I'd think $4000-$5000 would be tops. You could consider auctioning it at a classic car auction house, advertise it in a specialist magazine or approach a Holden car club where you would meet people with a passion for Holdens. My choice would be to advertise it in a specialist magazine.

An airy solution

Answered by CarsGuide 26 May 2005

WE PUT your question to Mark Lynch of Carcool Airconditioning and his response was that it probably wasn't worth fixing the aircon. He says any repair becomes a restoration with a system fitted to a car nearly 30 years old. If the compressor is black, it is an original Delco and would need major work to be suitable for new ozone-friendly gases. Run the car on petrol occasionally, otherwise seals and other bits in the fuel system dry out and harden, which can lead to other problems.
