Not many of these around.
Not cheap, but looks like a quality build

3.5L Straight six apparently.
Think there is a fair bit of nose in front of the radiator

Saw one in the weekend. Reckon it'd be worth a bit more than that. Love it how they're advertising a "heater demister" as like it's more than standard

I can see there was a Honda Civic worth $400 more than the Torana, bit different to todays collector’s market.

I actually sat my driving licence test in a Civic like the one for sale in 1981 and bought my first car a 76 Corolla panel van for $2600
