Description

"There's something magical about the Indy 500. It's not just a race; it's a celebration of speed and the human spirit." - Dan Wheldon

Leave the clock behind for a moment and dive back into the glory days of American motorcycling with our unique Gilmore Special. This is not just a tribute to the legends of yesteryear, but an ode to the power of petrol and unadulterated passion. Hand-built in the style of the legendary Indianapolis Race Car, our Gilmore Special exudes pure adrenaline, an echo of America's racing past. It feels like flying along on the powerful wings of an American Bald Eagle.

Every detail breathes the spirit of bygone racing epics. A true one-of-a-kind on the road, but also a perfect companion for touring, rallying and even track events. And yes, you may even join the pre-war events of, for example, the Vintage Dutch Vintage Sports Car Club! Those 'tough guys' with their Austin Healey's and Alfa's had better keep their sunglasses and caps firmly in place when you pop by with this Gilmore Special.

With a chassis dating back to 1932, a prow from a 1929 Chevrolet and powered by a powerful 1957 Chevrolet 235ci Inline 6-cylinder engine with a Powerglide automatic transmission, this car is a true work of art of American pride. The first thing you smell when you see this car are rubber, petrol, suntan lotion and hot dogs.

This unique find made a journey from American roads to a museum in St Louis, before it found its way to a Belgian collector's collection. And now we offer you the chance to be part of its story.

Step in, feel the power of the past and be enchanted by the unique charm of the Gilmore Special. This opportunity only comes once - grab it now and become the proud owner of a piece of American racing history.

"When you win the Indy 500, it's like winning the lottery. It's a life-changing moment that you'll never forget." - Bobby Rahal
