1/30 526-79 Aurora Fuel Injection Special 1953-54 Indianapolis 500 Winner - (ex-Best)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Very rare and from 1958. From ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue. Kit is molded in gray with real rubber tires, a driver figure, some interior detail and very nice decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still sealed in the internal factory bag and includes decals and instructions. Bill Vukovich was the driver of the Fuel Injection Special, which roared over the 500 miles in 3 hours, 53 minutes and 10 seconds. The average speed was 128.740 mph and he lead for 195 laps. Some laps were as fast as 138 mph. This car has magnesium disc wheels, and the first eight finishers also sported the same instead of the customary wire wheels.
