Hi all.I’m wanting clarification on what type of battery sticker would have been used in 71LCGTR .I have a pic of early LCGTR engine bay with what I believe is the correct one .I’ve also seen the Circular GMH type on a very early LCXU1 picture.Any advise appreciated .

That last circular type was pictured in the Spotlight on Torana book.

I have no pics..but my 1st car in 1974 a was LC GTR, that circular green one rings a loud bell. Reckon it would have had the factory battery still in it.
The GM stuff was years later I reckon.

Thanks Col.The green GMH one is listed as FB EK right up to EH era .Maybe either fits into that time frame? The blue GM one is definitely later.

Yeah on second thoughts Laurie ,that first pic must be later pic because the early LCGTRs had the carburettor return spring bracket and not attached to the battery tray.
