When Jack Brabham and his Cooper Climax qualified for the 1961 Indianapolis 500, the rear engine revaloution began. By 1963, the Lotus-Ford effort of Jim Clark, Dan Gurney, and Colin Chapman left no doubt that the front engine roadster's days were numbered. By 1965, when Jim Clark won the race in the first rear engine car to enter victory lane, the front engine car had all but disappeared. The years between 1961 and 1969 provided some of the greatest races, drivers, cars, and innovations in the history of the 500 mile race. Our collection has them all.
