Not a Morgan. But it is a pre-war Grand Prix and Indy car.
Here’s another angle: http://i49.tinypic.com/27z9g1i.jpg
Clue #1: The engine you see was the first to have a major technical innovation.
My pre-war knowledge isn’t great. I’ll guess at some model of Duesenberg.
Clue #2: It’s a marque that still exists.
Is it a Maserati?
Not a Maserati.
I really don’t think it is, but I’ll guess Alfa Romeo because I’m struggling to think of any pre-war manufacturers that it looks like it could be.
Not an Alfa either.
Clue #3: The car is painted in it’s country’s racing color (but in a different shade).
Renault never used the French blue afaik.
Here’s the whole thing: http://i48.tinypic.com/majtwj.jpg
Notice that it has two seats, to give you an idea of it’s age.
Wow, that was much taller than I thought it would be. I thoughts it would be from the 20’s, or maybe even 30’s.
That’s the one. Pre-war meant pre-WW1 in this case :P.
It won the 1916 Indy 500. It’s engine, the same as in the L76, was the first to have a dual overhead camshaft. The outside also looks very modern for it’s day indeed.
You’re up @matt90
You are finding the car which is closest to the camera.
The color and the tail lights make me think it’s a Ferrari, but I have no idea which model. Some kind of 512 perhaps?
Edit: I think it’s a 312P.
