yeh Dave but the pic of the jack you put up was of the 1500lb one,,, the pic that Bazza put up is of the 1300lb,,, and to the color THRASHTHEBUCKET said his was a green color and i have six of one and half a dozen of the other here in the shed, some have date codes [the later ones] some dont some are black some are blue/gray some are green, some have the yellow lined stickers some dont,,, the only thing im sure of is the diffrence between the 1300 and 1500lb jacks.

For what it's worth my 7/73 Adelaide car has a black jack but I've never looked for any date codes or weight rating.

Like wise here, have 1 x 2-lift and 2 x 3-lift bottle jacks


None that you can see the date code on  the bottom


Those that own a GTR or XU-1 will know that you need a 3-lift jack to lift up the body at the back to change the rear wheels when they are 5.5 inches (standard GTR or XU-1) or wider


Only have one folding winder which would suit the LJ as the LC had a one piece winder

Hi John Gong,


I can hardly see the date on it now,but it did say 8/72,didn't know the numbers back in 1989,had no idea what they meant.

But its a different story these days.


Regards John.

I apologize for resurrecting an old post but boredom has me searching for a period correct (colour) bottle jack which has not been re-painted. My car is 5/72 Adelaide with an unpainted black jack dated on the base in 9/71 and reviewing an old post from 2019 Anthony Crabtree has stated :

"The information on page 104 in the torana tough book about the bottle jacks is incorrect both blue and black were used at Adelaide and ONLY black in Brisbane for the LJ torana."


Is there a definitive conclusion to the debate on the colour of the Adelaide jacks. Are they the aqua blue or black?
