As the heading states, how did the bench seat come about in these models?
Was it special order? What about the handbrake position?
Curious as a friend sent a pic of one which i can say i have heard of it but never seen one in the flesh

The LC and LJ Torana were available as a 6 seater option , 6 cylinder 4 door models only.

The handbrake was mounted under the dash similar to the HK HT and HK models .

I have only ever seen a small handfull of 6 seater ones in my life time so i think that is was quite a rare option .

Yes, as LC870 has said, the front bench seat option (PO no. A52) in LC/LJ was quite rare & only available for 82369 (4-door S 6-cyl) & 82569 (4-door SL 6-cyl) models.

I've noticed that, for whatever reason they were for more commonplace in LCs, especially 69/70 models. I've owned 2 of these, both early LCs & I've only ever seen 1 LJ example.

The under-dash handbrake comes from underneath the centre of the dash & sits exactly where a factory radio would sit, so if you optioned car radio with PO A52, it would be need to be mounted under the glovebox, closer to the passenger than the driver.

If at first you don't succeed, just call it Version 1.0
