Collingrove Hillclimb - Mt McKenzie, Sth Australia
The Seeliger Vauxhall was built by Ern Seeliger in 1949-1950. It used a 1930's Vauxhall 14 / 6 cylinder engine bored to 2 litres with 3 zenith downdraught carburettors, Lancia Lambda gearbox and a modified Ford SV differential with a homemade DeDion rear suspension based on Citroen light 6 components and torsion bars. The front suspension was a transverse leaf independent setup and used again a Citroen light 6 rack and pinion steering arrangement. The chassis was a twin tube ladder type and the car used Lancia Lambda wheels and mechanical brakes. The Seeliger car is detailed in Hank Van Flink's Racing Cars and Hot Rods of the World.

Motormarques talks to John Lawson at Rob Roy August 19, 2012. John Lawson was kind enough to let me have a leaflet explaining some of the details of the car, explaining that it is a 6C 2300 Mille Miglia Alfa Romeo, with a 2.3 litre supercharged engine running with 7.5 lbs of boost and producing 180-190 brake horsepower. It was clocked at 204.6 km/h during an event in Newfoundland.
