1966 Indianapolis 500 Entry and Fuji 200 Winner with Jackie Stewart (Estimate: $1,000,000 – $1,400,000)
This early model of the notable British race car engineering brand, Lola Cars, was a powerhouse in significant competitions of the era, paving the road for future examples from this historic supplier of competition champions.
One of only three Lola T-90s built, this particular car, chassis 90/2, was driven by Jackie Stewart at the 1966 Indianapolis 500, where he was crowned Rookie of the Year. The famous F1 driver had a substantial career with this T-90, also racing it to a win at the Fuji 200 in Japan for legendary car owner John Mecom.
Not only was chassis 90/2 a formidable competitor, but its sleek, performance-driven design and striking livery make it a head-turner off the track, too. Chassis 90/2 is powered by Ford’s famous four-cam V-8 racing engine and boasts an aluminum monocoque supported by steel subframes. It has been in the consignor’s possession since 1995, when it was purchased from the significant collection of David Uihlein.
This is an incredible opportunity to acquire a competition veteran from one of the golden eras of motor sports.
