This photo history showcases each of the 111 full-size open-wheel race cars that Frank Kurtis built between 1941 and 1963. Kurtis' cars won the Indy 500 five years out of six from 1950 to 1955, and dominated the starting field from 1950 through 1958, due largely to a design in which the engine was offset in the car, allowing the driver to sit much lower, thus reducing the height of the car and wind resistance. Also included are engineering drawings of the cars, dramatic starting field and crash photos, and an appendix detailing car and engine serial numbers.
