Indy Cars of the 1960s

Ludvigsen Library Series

128-page Well Illustrated Paperback

8 1/2" x 10 1/4" paperback ...  128 pages ... 121 great photos with very detailed captions. Published by Iconografix Books. Copyright 2001.

About this Title: "One of the most spectacular and controversial decades in the long history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the 1960s saw the transition from the classic Roadster to mid-engined ''funny cars''. Though resisted by the Indy die-hards, the pace shown by the mid-engined Lotus-Fords starting in 1963 was irresistible. By 1967 the field was completely converted to rear-engined racers.

Reporting and photographing from Indy through most of the decade, Karl Ludvigsen, has fantastic photos of the cars: the last gasp of the Novis, the wild racers of Mickey Thompson, Brabhams and the successful Hawk copies, the astonishing STP turbine cars of the 1967 and 1968, Dan Gurney's Eagles from 1966, Lotuses, including the amazing four-wheel-drive cars, the battle between Fords and the turbo-Offys."
