1968 SHELBY TURBINE INDY CAR
Turbine-powered racers have a long history in the Indianapolis 500. One of the most notable turbine entries was the 1967 STP Oil Treatment Special. Nicknamed the “Wooshmobile,” it became the first turbine-powered car to qualify for the Indy 500 and missed winning by a mere three laps when a six-dollar transmission bearing failed. The car’s designer, Englishman Ken Wallis, then approached Carroll Shelby and proposed a partnership for the 1968 race. After arranging financing through Goodyear and Botany 500, Shelby worked with Wallis to refine Wallis’ earlier design. The original plan was to build three race cars, each powered by a $75,000 turbine engine secured from General Electric and employing a brilliantly conceived hydraulic all-wheel-drive system developed by Einar Jonsson. The cars would be fabricated by Wallis’ engineering staff at his rented two-story shop in Torrance, California, throughout the autumn of 1967. They would then be tested at West Coast race tracks before shipping to Indianapolis in mid-March 1968 for further trials, followed by the 500-mile race in late May. Two cars were completed, to be driven by Can-Am stars Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme, whose services had been secured through Goodyear.
Then USAC, responding to the threat turbines posed to piston-driven engines at the Brickyard, changed the rules, dictating that turbine air inlets be drastically reduced. The move robbed the Shelby turbine cars of their already-lacking top speed, but worse was yet to come. Amidst gathering financial clouds and Wallis’ inability to extract the necessary power, it was discovered by Goodyear Racing’s Manager of Public Relations Dick Ralstin, among others, that Wallis had resorted to cheating on the turbine engine’s intake. When Shelby’s Chief Engineer Phil Remington learned of Wallis’ chicanery he resigned on the spot, unwilling to allow his reputation to be soiled by any association with the scandal that would surely erupt and ruin careers. Remington’s move forced Shelby to quietly withdraw the two cars, which never turned a wheel in competition.
One of two built, this Shelby Turbine Indy Car was tested at Phoenix and driven in Rookie testing at Indianapolis by Bruce McLaren. Powered by a General Electric T-58 Shaft Drive Turbine engine rated at 1,325 HP and accompanied with an additional GE Turbine engine for display purposes, It is presented as originally built, equipped with Girling disc brakes and Goodyear Blue Streak Sports Car Special tires and painted in the original Gold and Blue livery. Currently on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Turbine Indy Car Exhibit, this unique racing artifact represents the historic final foray into turbine power at the Brickyard.
