Lot No. 506
Auctioned on Saturday, June 2, 2012
This Lola Indy Car chassis, T9500 H.U.24, USAC #6014, is the car that 1996 Indy Racing League co-champion Scott Sharp drove to 10th place in the 1996 Indianapolis 500 for A.J. Foyt Racing, sponsored by Conseco. It is also the chassis that 1998 Indianapolis 500 winner, Eddie Cheever, drove for Foyt in the 1995 Indy 500. Sharp qualified for the race in 21st position at 231.201-mph and won $158,003 for his 10th place effort.
This seems to be a very complete example with its Cosworth XB engine, gearbox, Pi Research dash and electronics, Lola wheels, “sticker” Goodyear tires, AP brake calipers, radiators, all pedals and adjuster bars, pop-off valve, half-shafts, Simpson belts, exhaust headers and much more.
Please note this car being sold on bill of sale only.
