Miller 91, 1926/28/29 Indy Winning, Model Car Kit, 1/25 Scale
Created by one of the most respected names in all of Motorsports, The Miller 91 was Harry A. Miller's most successful race car design. The rear drive 91 won more races than any other type from 1926 to 1929.
Simple, elegant and beautifully styled, the Miller 91 was akin to automotive jewelry. Powered by a 91 cubic inch, dual overhead cam, two valve per cylinder straight eight, this Miller was fast, too. With such innovative additions as an intercooler and special connecting rods, along with a "sweet" tune, Frank Lockhart set two remarkable records that stood for many years; at the Altoona board track, Lockhart shattered the closed course speed record with a lap of 147.7 mph, and prior to that, his Miller managed a one-way speed record of 171 mph at Muroc Dry Lake.
Still considered by many to be one of the most gorgeous race cars ever built, the Miller was clean in line and appointed with classic styling from stem to stern. When Harry Miller conceived these cars with Leo Goosen and Fred Offenhauser, great consideration was given to make the cars aesthetically pleasing inside and out. The bodies, hand formed by Myron Stevens, were slender and streamlined, starting with a grill shell that many enthusiasts consider to be a work of art.
This Miller 91 rear drive is a full kit with complete engine detail, including the option to build a straight supercharged car, or an intercooler-equipped version. Full cockpit detail is also included. The nine precisely cast resin parts are complemented by 52 white metal and resin-cast detail pieces, plus a cast grill shell. Stainless steel photo-etched parts add to the level of detail and realism with parts for the grill insert, Moto-Meter and more. South Eastern fine cast wire wheels and decal options for five different cars round out this great kit.
