Indianapolis Racing Cars

of Frank Kurtis

1941 - 1963 Photo Archive - Indy 500

by Gordon Eliot White

128-page Well Illustrated Paperback

8 1/2" x 10 1/4" paperback ...  128 pages ... 144 great photos with very detailed captions. Published by Iconografix Books. Copyright 2000.

About this Title: "The definitive book on Kurtis championship cars, showcasing all 111 full-size ''champ'' cars that Frank Kurtis built between 1941 and 1963. Most of these cars were built specifically to race at Indianapolis. In fact, Kurtis' cars won the Indianapolis 500 five years out of six (1950-1955), and dominated the starting field from 1950 through 1958.

Kurtis pioneered the ''roadster'' design, in which the engine was offset in the car, allowing the driver to sit much lower, reducing the height of the car and thus wind resistance. Roadsters were the last front-engine cars before the 1965 rear-engine revolution, and they are remembered with much nostalgia.

Also see engineering drawings of the cars as well as dramatic starting field photos and crash photos. An appendix detailing car and engine serial numbers will add to your enjoyment. "

About Iconografix Books: These are the "class of the field" when it comes to racing books. High quality photos (nearly as good a glossies themselves) ... hardcore technically-oriented subject matter, including many rare images of the mechanical workings of the cars themselves. If you like racing, you will love these books ! We stock many of the Iconografix Books racing titles ... combine purchases and save shipping charges.

Perfect Quality: Book is new merchandise (pristine, gift quality) with absolutely no problems. We are an authorized distributor of Iconografix Books and get them directly from them ... they are not "thumbed through" bookstore overstock.
