Description

The era of postwar Indianapolis roadsters offered fans some of the most exciting racing and biggest names in the history of motorsport.

These big roadsters were a unique breed — front-engined, Offenhauser-powered beasts that demanded equal parts brute strength and sheer bravery of their drivers.

This authoritative photo history of that heady era Features 200 archival photographs of the legendary’ cars and the men who piloted them to victory lane — a list that reads like a who’s who of American racing: Parnelli Jones, A.J. Foyt, Troy Ruttman, Rodger Ward, Bobby Unser, Tony Bettenhausen, and Eddie Sachs, to name a few. Also discussed and depicted are the builders, team owners, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and other tracks campaigned by the men and their machines.

Hardback in generally very good condition with good dust jacket.
