Studebaker Straight 8 At Indy - 1933 - 1939

Post by Sonny »

In 1932 and 1933, Studebaker Corporation sponsored a factory team of five race cars in each year’s Indianapolis 500-Mile Race. Each of the five cars was powered by the Studebaker 337-c.i. Straight 8 President engine.

The Studebaker 250 c.i. Straight-8 Commander engine is an example of the company's engines that powered very competitive race cars at Indianapolis during 1933 - 1939. Our engine was used as a backup engine, but never actually ran at Indy.
