Beschreibung

This Indianapolis racing March-Cosworth Type 87C was air-freighted as-new to Kraco Enterprises' racing headquarters in Compton, California, on January 14, 1987. It was to be driven by Michael Andretti – son of America's illustrious multiple Champion Driver Mario Andretti, in 15 races during that coming year's PPG Indy CarWorld Series.

We understand that in this car the fine American race driver Michael Andretti took two pole positions and qualified in the fastest five no fewer than 13 times on his way to second place in the 1987 PPG Indy Car World Series championship. He won four qualifying-round races, at Milwaukee, Michigan, Nazareth, and Miami.

While most of the Indy cars that appear for public sale have 'also-ran' histories or have been non-running cars, this machine was very much home to one of America's leading racing drivers and can be refurbished to running condition.

The car is powered by a fresh Cosworth DFX 2.6-liter turbocharged V8-cyl
