Synopsis: Back In Print! Novi V-8 Indy Cars 1941-1965 (Ludvigsen Library Series)
By Karl Ludvigsen. Few cars of any kind have exuded the charismatic appeal of the great Novi V-8 racing cars that competed at Indianapolis from 1941 (the engine only) to 1965 - an incredible record of longevity and persistence. With its centrifugally-supercharged four-cam V-8 engine the Novi was a power prodigy in all its incarnations.
First a front-wheel-drive car, it earned a reputation for wicked handling by killing two of its drivers. But the Novis were so fast - so often- that more racers were always willing to take them on. Though a Novi never won at Indy, these magnificent cars are fondly remembered by all enthusiasts.
From his Ludvigsen Library, Karl Ludvigsen has selected a splendid collection of photographs displaying these grand cars. Andy Granatelli writes a moving introduction about the Novis he rescued from the racing scrap heap. 10.25"" wide x 8.5"" tall Landscape.
