Triple Consecutive Oakland 500 Winner: Miller Twin Cam Special

Triple Consecutive Oakland 500 Winner: Miller Twin Cam Special

The Sta-Lube Miller Special/Redhead Special was built in 1935 and is described as an Indy Champ single-seat race car, but to us it looks like a classic “Big Car” of the type once popularly raced on dirt tracks well into the 1950’s. Reportedly built for a Lockheed executive, the car is reportedly a three-time consecutive winner of the Oakland 500 (1938, ’39 and ’40), but what really makes it special is its gorgeous and exotic DOHC 220ci Miller four-cylinder. Restored with help from the original owner, the car has since “received top honors” at vintage race and concours events like Laguna Seca, Pebble Beach and Santa Barbara. Sale looks to include lots of period historical documentation, though we wish the ad included a video of its “one of three” twin-cam running hard as well. Find it here on eBay in Gardena, California for $550k OBO.
