High-end, investment grade, museum quality t ford 1 a gp f 1 indy midget race built car vintage model 24 1958 12 gt 25 f 40 high detail, precision metal model art approx 10 inches in lengthcarefully packed and safely shipped in original box (to your destination)...Dick rathmann and ed elisian had been dueling for speed honors during practice and qualifying for the 1958 indy 500. They started the race 1-2 with jimmy reece on the outside of the front row. Pat o'connor started behind them in the middle of row two. Their duel continued as they both jumped the start of the race, with reece following them infront of the pace car. When the pace car did not speed up, the three were waved ahead and this caused all pandemonium to break out. After the parade lap, the planned pace lap, and the whatever-it-was lap, the front row sort of got back in position and the race started. Rathmann and elisian went wheel to wheel around the track. Neither driver backed off as they went into turn 3 and elisian spun, collected rathmann and sent them both into the wall, starting a 15-car pileup. In one of the worst crashes in the history of thr indy 500, pat o'connor flipped his car and it caught on fire. Though o'connor's sumar special burned, indianapolis speedway medical officials said that he was probably already dead of a fractured skull. O'connor's pit crew locked the garage door and refused to talk about the accident. He was 29 and at the peak of his racing career. Pat had said he'd retire if he ever won the indy 500. The accident had similarities to bill vukavich's from three years prior. Both drove blue #4 cars that started from position 5. Both climbed another car, flipped and burned. Both drivers were blameless, their accidents caused by other cars.
