    Original "Mallard" Nose From 1969 Jim Hurtubise Indy 500 Race Car This nose is from the Jim Hurtubise "Mallard" Indy 500 racing car that ran at speeds that would have qualified for the 1969 Indy 500. It was the last front-engine car to qualify at Indy and it is unique in that he was experimenting with down force and added the distinctive wings. He also added ducts at the bottom of the nose very much like Ferrari had done on their Formula 1 cars. The nose has not been restored or altered and is in very good "as-raced" condition. This car was featured in the book "Indy Cars of the 1960's". The ultimate piece of Garage Art! The nose cone measures 45" long x 44" wide x 20" high.

    From the Collection of Stephen Forristall
