Only one was ever made and its sitting in a shed at Mt Tamborine on the Gold Coast hinterland. Its owner Brian Telfer came across the car in a terrible state, including a blown engine. I bought it under the condition that the owner find another motor, the 64-year-old semi-retired businessman said. Telfer bought the car for $6000, but estimated he had spent more than $45,000 restoring it to its full former glory. The chassis was built in 1951 in Melbournes Commonwealth Aircraft Factory by the manager, Ern Seeliger, who had built several other special race cars for personal racing use. Seeligers biggest claim to fame was in the 1958 Australian Grand Prix when he scored a second place in one of his specials behind a Ferrari driven by Lex Davison. The initials JSR stand for friends, John and Sylvia Rees. It was a prototype for a production racer, but was deemed too expensive, so it was the only one made. The body is steel, the brakes are finned drums, the tyres are special Michelin Englebert racing rubber, the instruments are Jaeger, the three-speed gearbox is Ford, the transverse leaf spring front suspension comes from the American Ford Mercury, it has revolutionary torsion bar rear suspension and the four-litre, side-valve V8 engine is from a Mercury, with Offenhauser heads, inlet twin manifold and twin Stromberg carbies. m g 0 6 0 6 2 3 Hidden Valley Ford 674 - 676 Stuart Highway, Berrimah - opposite WOW Sight & Sound Berrimah Ph: 8947 7777 | www.hiddenvalleyford.com.au | LMVD 366 Vehicle must be purchased from 6 August 2010 to the end of August to be eligible for this offer.
