Thanks Paul , you are correct , it was a HB torana . It seems the LC didn't get popular until the release of XU1 later in 1970 .

Nothing for 1969 Shaun,However a Holden Torana raced in the Gallagher 500 in 1967 in class A ,C.Cronan and S.Parkes completed 103 laps ,could have been a Brabham but not sure.
It can't have been a Brabham, they weren't released until late Oct 67, while the race was on the first weekend in that month. It was most likely just a plain jane 4-sp manual S, but at least with disc brakes, which were an option back then.
