Similar problem at this end. I scanned Gerr´s suggestion, (Road & Track) but was unable to post it.
So I did send it directly to Peter at MOTORSPORTRESORT, hoping he can post them !
I will appreciate if you send me a copy of your scan. If the pics I send are not posted (and you are interested) I will reciprocate.

Anyway Ray, from the sales advert of the; (Tec Mec) "Poggi"
"The rear suspension is by quarter elliptic spring, and radious rods, parallel to the longitudinial axis of the car, the telescopic dampers are "Sea Legged" at the rear...
Ray; what is "Sea Legged"? (I think I met her?)

Never heard the term, except in relation to drunks and other nefarious types...
Nothing in that description, either, about lateral location.
If you scan the pics and email them to me, I'll post them for you. Please save them as jpg files, scan at about 100dpi.

Of course, they would have been cut off in their prime had it been regulated to keep the engine in the front, but the development of Clubman cars in both Australia and England shows that competitiveness and lap times might not have been so bad with such a restriction.
Can anyone pick if the 'sea-legged' might mean one to the front and the other to the rear of the axle? It doesn't look like it to me, but it could be an explanation...

Any more thoughts on the lateral location?
