presented by Hagerty® Insurance at IMS Legends Day 2017

Stacks Image 304
The Vintage Indy Registry Trophy presented by Hagerty for the winning car at IMS Legends Day, was a 1930 Miller. This iconic car was constructed with a 183ci Miller by noted car builder Myron Stevens for owner William "Hollywood Bill" White of Los Angeles, CA. The stunning white #16 car was entered in its maiden Indianapolis 500 for 1930 as the Miller-Schofield Special and finished in 2nd place with an average speed of 98.054mph scoring $10,000 in sweepstakes prize money for its driver and Paris, Illinois native Shorty Cantlon and his riding mechanic L. Miller. This beautiful car competed in more 500s (1930-1947) than any other Miller in Indianapolis history.

The winner of the 2017 Vintage Indy Registry trophy presented by Hagerty for the best in show. A well deserved award for an outstanding restoration.

The VPJ-1/102 has been restored using all original componentry acquired directly from Parnelli Jones and is in its ‘Mk 1’ configuration incorporating dihedral wings, dual camber compensators and other details as the car would have run
during early testing in the 1972 season.

The car has been restored to its original Samsonite livery, including original 'suitcase' numeral decals dating back to 1972. Joe Leonard has verified the pedal location and certain details in the tub (Joe was nearly 6’ tall and certain modifications had to be made to his cars vs. those driven by Andretti and Unser)
as one of the two chassis he drove during the ’72 racing season.

Larry Alleman has verified this chassis was one of the first two constructed of the VPJ-1 series based on the type of rivets used in the construction of the tub.
