I don't mind the look of it with a sunroof, especially since the GPak was like the 'option' model. Looks a bit retro with the sunroof. I'd have to agree with you that I'd go with Absinth Yellow as well, surfmaster.

MRGPAK number plates! Thats confidence
I used to see the g-paks all the time as most of them were cheap first cars for my cousins but there was a done up one in my area with MRGPAK plates on it.

Also the ad promo says they all have radials...

Don't see too many around anymore, perhaps one or two a year over here in Brissie.
Mine is still in pretty damn good condition for it's age, always been garaged, still has original 202 and M20, although I've had both of them rebuilt. Finally did a clutch at 180,000km, and that was after a fair bit of towing and work over it's lifetime.
I've added things like air-con, alarm, etc, but nothing that can't cosmetically be reversed. Paint looks good from a distance, but up close you can tell it's a 30 year old paint job.
I've always wondered just how I would get the blue G-Pak logo and striping back on when I restored it. Is it just a case of getting a really good spraypainter to take photos and masks off it first? Surely there are no templates left anymore...

I can still see under the car that the original colour was yellow and also in another little quirk, Leigh Rainbird of the already pictured BBBAD fame was the guy who put together the engine and driveline combo and did some of the spanner work on my car.

I can post my VIN prefixes and codes if someone here can confirm that there would have been some sort of pattern. Might be a waste of time if they just pulled 'S' Torana's off the line and added the options... might have been random bodies, etc.

If you have anything even remotely similar to that I'd love to have a squiz; great images.

Just thinking, we need an old Torrie ad section on the forum, with the view of eventually getting all the Torrie magazine ads up here. I've got a few for the LH.
