Torana HB Series 2 ....

September 1968 - October 1969 ...

Introduced as the '1969 Torana', the HB Series 2 was actually released in September 1968 and was a minor upgrade of the first HB. Even though it appeared almost identical, the new version featured plenty of new componentry as well as an increase in local content.

The four-door 'S' and 'SL' sedans were new additions to the range and the Brabham became a separate, two-door-only model (option No XS5). The four-door body was an entirely Australian development and exhibited an increase in overall body strength.

Exterior changes were limited to badgework, some relocated and some new. A coachline pinstripe was used on the SL model and only one number-plate light was fitted to the rear bumper (previously there were two). Interior changes were more obvious, with the introduction of a collapsible steering column and steering wheel (similar to that of the HK) and new round, recessed instruments.

Basic trim was Sadlon vinyl while Griffin grain was used on S and Brabham models. Wyvern grain was exclusive to the SL, with Castillon-weave nylon fabric as an option.

The major safety upgrade was the use of dual circuit braking. The Brabham model for the Series 2 was revised with a stripe across the nose along the sill as well as blacked-out window frames and tail-light panel. Comprehensive instrumentation including a tachometer as well as oil pressure, fuel, water temperature and amp gauges completed the package.
