Celebrated Indy 500 Racecars join the starting grid for Worldwide’s Scottsdale Auction

Auburn, IN. November 15, 2017. Worldwide Auctioneers has confirmed that two renowned Indianapolis 500 Racecars will join the grid for its annual Scottsdale Auction at the start of Arizona Car Week on Wednesday, January 17th.

Offered for sale with outstanding racing pedigree and multiple awards is "Smokey" Yunick's first Indy 500 entry, a 1957 Kurtis Kraft 500G Indianapolis 500 Roadster, a 5th place finisher at the 1957 Indianapolis 500 with Andy Linden and driven at Indy in 1958 by racing legend Paul Goldsmith. "As an AACA Senior First Place Award winner with Racecar Certification and multiple appearances at feted events like the 2005 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the car is an out-and-out crowd pleaser with huge presence, offered in top operating and show condition," said Rod Egan, Principal & Auctioneer.

Slated to cross the block alongside it is a 1969 AAR Eagle-Santa Ana Indianapolis 500 Racecar, one of four examples built by Dan Gurney's All American Racers, the sole Eagle-Santa Ana sold new to a customer. Driven by Joe Leonard to 6th Place at 1969 Indianapolis 500 and retained by Mr. Yunick for over thirty years it was restored in the 2000's by experts including A.J. Watson and has enjoyed numerous appearances, including the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
