1961 A.J. Foyt Original Bowes Seal Fast Special Front Nose
A great piece of historic memorabilia, this original front nose of was acquired by its previous owner from one of A.J. Foyt’s old race shops. He then stored the all fibreglass piece for over the last fifty years and then recently had it restored to its previous former glory and as it would have looked as part of the 1961 Floyd Trevis Offenhauser, Bowes Seal Fast Special. This is one of the cars Foyt used to win the 1961 USAC Championship. The Trevis car was almost an exact copy of the Watson Roadsters of the day. Foyt used this car in three races during the season including his win at the Indianapolis 500.
The nose has been fully restored and painted to concourse standard in the Bowes Seal Fast colors of red, black and white. It has a hand pinstriped #1, that signifying Foyt being the 1960 USAC National Driving Champion.
This would be a fantastic addition to any Foyt/IndyCar collection and would make a great centre piece.
Please note we cannot confirm if this nose was used in a racing situation or if it was just a spare/backup nose.
