Roadster
Built by legendary car owner Mike Boyle in 1938, this Miller FWD only raced in Indianapolis. Driven by legendary drivers of the era, this Miller finished second in the 1946 Indianapolis 500, qualifying at a speed of over 120 miles per hour. From 1939 to 1947, it never finished out of the top six. The Offenhauser engine, familiarly known as the 'Offy,' was developed by Fred Offenhauser and his employer Harry A. Miller. Miller developed this engine into a twin overhead cam, four-cylinder, four-valve-per cylinder 220 cubic-inch (3.6-liter) racing engine.

This front-wheel-drive Indianapolis racecar has an extensive Indy history. It raced with a Miller 8-cylinder engine from 1938 through 1941. There were no races from 1942 through 1945 due to WWII. It raced in 1946-1947 with a Miller/Offy 4-cylinder engine.
