Vintage Cars

1903 Premier

Built in Indianapolis from 1903 to 1925, the Premier began as a conventional vehicle before special racing models were created. In 1916, two racing Premiers equipped with a twin overhead camshaft, four cylinder, 16 valve engine, competed in the sixth running of the Indianapolis 500.

1953-54 Dean Van Lines Special

Designed as a combination dirt track and IndyCar, this Eddie Kuzma-built Offenhauser-powered machine won 17 National Championship races between 1953 and 1957 and finished second in the 38th running of the Indianapolis 500 before being converted into a sprint car in 1966.Designed as a combination dirt track and IndyCar, this Eddie Kuzma-built Offenhauser-powered machine won 17 National Championship races between 1953 and 1957 and finished second in the 38th running of the Indianapolis 500 before being converted into a sprint car in 1966.

1960-61 Kelso Dynamics Special

One of the last “lay-down” cars to run at the Indianapolis 500, this car features an engine tilted so far to the left that it appears to be lying on its side. The design also resulted in a very low center of gravity and left-side weight bias which improved cornering capability.

1972 Parnelli/Offy Indy Car #9

The Maurice Philippe-designed cars built by and for the Vel’s Parnelli Jones Racing “Super Team” in 1972 underwent considerable amounts of secret experimentation prior to the 56th running of the Indianapolis 500, when the car’s dihedrals were replaced with a standard rear wing.

1986 March/Cosworth

At the 70th running of the Indianapolis 500 in 1986, nine of the first 10 finishing positions were held by V8 Cosworth-powered chassis built by March Engineering of Bicester, England.

1994 Valvoline/Cummins Lola

Driven by Robby Gordon in his fifth place finish at the 78th running of the Indianapolis 500, this 161-cubic-inch turbocharged V8 Cosworth XB-powered 1994 Lola was sponsored by Valvoline and the Cummins Engine Company of Columbus, Indiana.

Our Partnership

The relationship between IU Health Methodist Hospital and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway dates back to the racetrack's earliest days. From the hospital's first motorized ambulance in 1910, to the first liftoff of their LifeLine helicopter in 1970, to today, IU Health Methodist Hospital and the IMS have worked together to promote the safety of racecar drivers and Hoosiers alike. Rev is a celebration of the continued partnership between these influential Indianapolis institutions.
