Racer
Sold for $495,000 at 2007 Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction.
This 1925 Miller 122 Front Drive Race Car has a racing history that spans 21 years. It raced at the Indianapolis 500 on multiple occasions and scoring a sixth-place finish on one of those attempts. It is known as Front Drive #2 and is truly one of the greatest racing cars of all times.

This car has a 120.8 cubic-inch supercharged dual overhead camshaft inline eight-cylinder engine that produces over 200 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel drum brakes. Most of the Miller racing cars have been destroyed, wrecked, or parted out. It is rare to come upon a true survivor, and this one was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $500,000 - $600,000. It was offered without reserve. The high bid fell just short of the estimated value, reaching $495,000 including buyer's premium, and secured new ownership. The lot was sold.
