1933 Studebaker Indy Special Racer news, pictures, specifications, and information
Chassis Num: E2915
Over the course of history, four of the other 1933 cars have had their bodies changed. Thus, this is the only example to still be clothed with its original, high-cowl body that was formed in a wind tunnel at the University of Michigan.
The car wears aluminum coachwork created by Rigling. Under the bonnet is a 336 cubic-inch, L-head, 8-cylinder engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission.
The car was part of the Brooks Stevens Museum from 1955 through 1966. In 1997, the car was given a partial restoration.

|1958 Moroccan Grand Prix: British All the Way|
|After years of frustration, and well past his life-expectancy, Mike Hawthorn would be on the verge of his first World Championship.

Emotionally, Hawthorn was done. The last few seasons had seen Hawthorn fail to experience anywhere near the level of success he had even in his rookie year of 1952. In 1952, with an unde...[Read more...]|
