Ooh! Ooh! I Actually know what this is because I’ve seen it. It’s the 1964 Hurst Floor Shifter Special. It was a radical experimental Indy 500 car developed in the 60s. It wasn’t super successful because it actually generated a lot of drag in the straights, but set speed records through the corners. The idea is that going around the banking you want the lowest center of gravity possible to get the car to adhere better to the road, so logically you shift as much weight as possible to the low side of the car, hence the offset cockpit. It’s in the collection at the LeMay Automotive Museum. Really weird looking car, but massively cool.
whoa, thanks! :-)
