A9X Question

Just finished reading issue 97 of AMC magazine, and the article on the first and last Torana A9X.

Why was the Torana not permitted to to run A9X specifications in the 1980 season, but instead run with LX SS specifications?

CAMS wanted only the current models to run and as a disincentive both the Torana and XC Falcon were only approved to run in a much detuned state to equalise performance with the Commodore and XD.

The top level of motorsport in the country should feature the latest models...........

From what I remember, Holden had never built enough cars in "A9X" spec to be able to be homologated for the new 1980 rules, but Holden had built enough LX SS models, so hence they had to run them.
