1917 - Indy 500 Tribute Car: The Golden Submarine

The Golden Submarine was an early twentieth century streamlined race car designed and built in 1917 by Fred Offenhauser and Harry A. Miller for Barney Oldfield. AutoWeek said that the vehicle brought Miller "nationwide prominence as a race-car builder" High Bid of $ 18,000 Four-cylinder engine Twin carburetors Built by Charles Glick Concealed headlights Bucket-style seats Chrome wire wheels Polished aluminum radiator shell Moto-meter Leather hood straps Single center exhaust Racing great Barney Oldfield commissioned the construction of the original Golden Submarine by engineer extraordinaire, Harry Miller in 1917. With the late-1990s, Charles Glick became involved with building cars for the Great Race. As luck would have it, he met Dale Bell, a Great Race competitor, who later commissioned Mr. Glick to build this Golden Submarine replica. It incorporates an inline four-cylinder engine with twin carburetors. Glick made modifications such as concealed headlights and turn signals and added cockpit insulation. There is a single door on the right side of the car, offset bucket-style seating for two, the famous golden finish, along with chrome wire wheels, polished aluminum radiator shell, moto-meter, leather hood straps, knock-off hubs and wire mesh in the majority of windows.
