The Ford Motor Companied paired with famed car builder Harry Miller in 1935 to create a team of ten Ford V8-powered cars for the Indianapolis 500. The whole deal was put together by team manager Preston Tucker, who later produced the short-lived 1948 Tucker automobile. The Ford-Miller cars featured a front-wheel-drive configuration with a reverse-mounted 21-stud Ford flathead engine, and both the front and rear had independent suspension. The low-slung chassis carried elegant, graceful and aerodynamic bodies. At the race, nine Ford V8-engined Millers arrived late, only four qualified and none finished. Each was eliminated by the same design flaw; the steering box had been installed so close to the engine block that the gears would expand and 'lock up' as the engine heat increased, eventually making the steering wheel too heavy for the driver to turn.
