The 2011 Concours of America had as one of its featured classes 33 historic race cars that competed in the Indianapolis 500, representing a century of racing. We’ll be featuring some of those cars this weekend. This 1908 American Simplex was the oldest car on display and may be the oldest existing Indy 500 racer having been built three years before the inaugural running of the race in 1911. A definite survivor with real patina. I’m hoping to have more information about this particular car and how it did in the race later.
