BRIGGS CUNNINGHAM'S MOTOR MUSEUM

BRIGGS CUNNINGHAM'S MOTOR MUSEUM

DAN GURNEY'S Formula One Eagle-Weslake V12 (right) won the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix driven by Gurney himself, and is now on loan to the Cunningham collection. The Duesenberg single-seater (No. 34, below) dates from 1929 and is powered by a straight-eightcylinder supercharged motor. It was driven into second place in the 1929 Indianapolis 500 by Fred Frame. The black and red "sweep panel phaeton" to its right is one of several Duesenbergs in the Cunningham collection, this distinguished straight-eight-cylinder 7-litre machine being built back in 1930. Cunningham also adds modern-day classics to his collection from time to time, the bottom left photograph showing a Lannborghini Miura alongside a Ferrari Dino coupe. The bottom right photograph shows two of the collection's most interesting exhibits, the 1914 Indianapolis Peugeot which finished second in that race back in 1914 and the 1919 Ballot straight-eight-cylinder Indianapolis team car, one of two survivors of this four-car team.
