If Dan Gurney had never driven a racing car, his name would still belong in the pantheon of American motorsports as the constructor of a stunning variety of beautiful racing cars, designed, built, and campaigned by his company, All American Racers of Santa Ana, California.
An impressive 157 Gurney Eagles were built between 1965 and 2000 for AARs own racing team and for customers. Eagles won on the Formula 1 circuit, at the Indianapolis 500, 12 Hours of Sebring, and 24 Hours of Daytona, as well as in many national and international championships in open-wheel and sports-car racing.
Whenever they appeared on the racing scene, Gurneys cars were a force to be reckoned with ... this '33 roadster was named as tribute to these iconic racers.
