I haven't had any real classics. The one car i wish i had kept was an LC 4 door SL torana I bought in sometime around 2006 or so as a second car run around. It had a 161 motor and disc brake front end. Bought it off a mechanic I knew for $750. Had it resprayed by a friend in a light metallic green for a few hundred plus paint. It was fitted with mags and went really well; even had an under dash aircond and no rust. The only thing it required was a new grill as the fitted one was a bit worse for wear but they were as rare as hen's teeth to find. Sold it after 2 years to my nephew for $1500. He subsequently wrote it off after a year and also took ages for him to actually pay me the full amount owing.

The big 161 with air con, never thought of that. nor air con in a LC or LJ Torana never seen one. but yes I suppose a 161 is a big 6 with much the same power to weight as a HT 186 so a 161 LC torana could of been factory optional in them, but not the 138 6 Torana or the 161 Kingswood.

Was your LC 161 a automatic.
