Australian only Limited Edition release. New 2 door A9X Tooling
The 1979 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 was the 20th running of the Bathurst 1000 touring car race. Peter Brock and Jim Richards won their second successive Bathurst 1000 driving a Holden Dealer Team A9X SS Hatchback Torana. In the most dominant performance in the races history, Brock, starting from pole position, got a perfect start and was never headed. Brock and Richards won the race by a record six laps, easily beating the old winning margin of 2 laps set in 1975. Brock later claimed that he just wanted to show how good the Torana was even after 1000 km of hard racing.
It was Brock's fourth and Richards' second win. Toranas swept the podium with Peter Janson and Larry Perkins finishing second ahead of Ralph Radburn and John Smith. With Holden ending production of the Torana, 1979 would be the 5th and last Torana victory in the race. From 1980 Holden would race the Commodore.
