The 1959 Indy 500 winner
I already have the 3 roadster models made by "Hobby horse" that cover the 1960 to 62 Indy winners, but was in 1959 that this Watson roadster model started. So I decided to buy another model and modify it to represent the 1959 Indianapolis winner driven by Rodger Ward (Team: Leader Card #5). Here is it disassembled and ready to be converted, removal of the hump in the left engine hood, relocate the oil tank and remove the rear tow bar.
It's finished, now I also have the 1959 Indy winner, the Leader Card #5 driven by Rodger Ward. This is a modified Hobby horse ref. 432. I am also including the family photo of the Watson Indy winners from 59 to 62.
