Description

THIS IS AN EXTRA NICE 1951 FORMULA INDY 500, FULL SIZE CAR! THIS IS NOT A MIDGET!EVERYTHING IS NEW IN THIS CAR, NEW STEERING, NEW SUSPENSION, NEW DASH WITH VINTAGE GAUGES, NEW LOWER ALUMINUM BODY, NEW TOP FIBERGLASS BODY, NEW STEERING WHEEL, NEW NOSE, NEW STEERING BOX, NEW SEAT, GAS TANK, NEW CUSTOM MADE ALUMINUM RADIATOR, NEW PAINT, NEW UPHOLSTERY, NEW ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP, ETC
THE FRAME WAS SAND BLASTED AND I USED A BLUE LIGHT TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY NUMBERS ON THE FRAME TO TRACE BACK TO A RACER, BUT COULDN'T FIND ANY MARKINGS.
A 50'S INDY CAR WITH A DRIVER'S NAME AND RACE HISTORY ATTACHED CAN BRING OVER $150,000 AT ANY AUCTION.
THE ORIGINAL OFFENHAUSER ENGINE WAS REPLACED BY A 1989 V8 350 LT-1 FUEL INJECTED CORVETTE ENGINE AND TURBO 350 TRANSMISSION.
THE REAR BRAKES WILL NEED TO BE FINISHED, GAUGES NEED TO BE HOOK UP, THE ENGINE STARTS BUT QUIT AFTER FEW SECONDS RUNNING, DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS. THIS CAR HAS BEEN SEATING FOR OVER A YEAR, I AM USING AS A DISPLAY ON MY SHOP, I NEVER DROVE THE CAR.
THIS CAR WILL BE PERFECT FOR ANY VINTAGE RACING, CAR SHOWS OR BUSINESS DISPLAY.
I purchased this car at a car show inside Daytona speedway from Ayrton Senna's family member (Brazilian formula one race driver) They told me this car came from a mechanic that worked for Freddie Agabashian, (50'S formula Indy race driver) it is a 1951, this body style was only used in 1950 and 1951. They bought to use the rear end and the offenhauser engine.
THIS CAR WILL BE SOLD WITH A BILL OF SALE, BUT IF THE BUYER NEEDS A TITLE TO BE STREET LEGAL I CAN GET ONE FOR $650.00
