Limited Edition Torana Hatch

The company, and legal entity no longer exists.
Got a great Oct. 1977, "Bathurst Special" Motor Manual magazine off Ebay.
Found an article on A9X, and an add for the same, but spec'd as "Limited Edition".
[car is same in both pics.]
Thought some might find it interesting. Still had chrome around tail lights,
all-be-it painted black. Also had an interesting strip package, not unlike a G-pack!
Does anybody know the wheels used? They look like a cross between
the LE Monaro honeycomb and a hotwire..
Oh, and a great article on the "Silver Fox's last hunt". I'll scan that too.
And another article on the Taipan/Mystere/Concorde.

Still available, try us ebay.
Having said that, i have one bent one here from my old T/A and they won't clear any half decent aftermarket performance brake setup.

Back when I had the SS, I was chatting to a fella in the US
who had a set of Vega rims that looked like they would fit
a Torrie. We exchanged technical details, and all seemed
to match up.
What other mainstream rims fit our babies?
Perhaps a new thread is in order.

The wheels appear to be 7 inch wide. I believe there are 14 inch versions. The 15's are available in 7's and 8inches wide (WS6 code I think). The latter are distinguished by the deeper rim face. Easiest way to pick is to look where the spokes meet the rim. &'s are almost flush (as in the photo above of the concept car)

I recall reading an article in a mag - possibly an old Leo Pruneau interview that the snowflakes were originally chosen for the LE but there were supply problems so GMH went with the honeycombs. A monaro or Kingswood styling car was actually fitted with the snowflakes too. Plenty of other GM wheels fit.
