The 1967 Torana - meaning 'to fly' in the Aboriginal language - was based on Britain's Vauxhall Viva.
It had broad appeal through hatch and sedan body styles, and a wide range of engines comprising four, six or eight cylinders.
The Torana became a touring car legend when racing versions took five victories during the 1970s, including three at the hands of another legend - Peter Brock.
A race-car-for-the-road A9X version is regarded by many as one of Holden's most iconic cars.
