1935 Miller Ford V8 Special
Another blast from the past, this time through this 1935 Miller Ford V8 Special – fitting name, actually. The result of collaboration between Henry Ford, Preston Tucker and Harry Miller this thing was designed and built for a 10-car Ford assault on Indianapolis, back in 1935. Powered by a 220 cubic inch Ford flathead V8 developing 150 hp was not enough to keep the steering unit design flaw from crashing 9 out of 10 racers. During the following years several of the cars were rebuilt with redesigned steering units, which apparently is good news.
This car is one of the original 10 built for the 1935 Indianapolis 500, and is set to sell on August 18-20, 2016, right before the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 21. If you have the money for it, and the racetrack, you should not miss out on this rare opportunity to acquire an original Miller-Ford V-8 Special that holds AACA Senior and Race Car Certification. Care to speculate about the cash needed to get this baby home?
