Jon’s 1977 Torana LXSS

Jul 12, 2018 | Customer Projects

Built in the back shed by Jon Kendall with a little help from a few experts. This 1977 Torana LXSS has been featured in various shows. It is hard to believe that 1 year ago (2017) this ended as the finished product of a nine-month project.

It started off as a body that had a lot of rust and no windows. Luckily the motor was working, though the hardest part was the fact that it was already started and Jon had to work with what the previous owners had completed. Jon worked through a fair amount of setbacks.

He said the best advice he can give would be to “Network amongst the vehicle community. Especially the specific makes and models of the cars you’re working on.” The Torana was painted in Protec Basecoat and has an Extra Flow Clear over the top. Painted in the GMH colour Morpheus. It is now used as both a show car and as a personal leisure vehicle.

This vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
