Today Peter Holinger's Hillclimb car has been collected from our workshop and will be on display at the Victorian Historic Racing Registers Clubrooms for the foreseeable future.
This car is something we have had on display in the Holinger factory for the last few years. After Pete passed away in 2009, we had it restored back to it's former glory, as it was run. To our knowledge (correct us if we're wrong - Pete was never one to gloat on past achievements!) he won the 1988 Australian Championship in it, then retired the car and himself to focus on developing Holinger Engineering into what it is today.
I know those of you who have come into the factory have enjoyed seeing the car, so hopefully now more enthusiasts will get the chance to do so, as it is a special car, designed and built-for-purpose around the beautiful Repco-Brabham V8.
The car can be seen at:
30-32 Lexton Rd Box Hill Vic, 3129
However contact the club for opening details.
Enjoy the photos!
