The Dean Van Lines Kuzma Roadster was built for Al Dean’s crew chief Clint Brawner and driver Jimmy Bryan for the 1955 Indianapolis 500. Bryan led the race twice for a total of 31 laps before the fuel pump on the Offenhauser engine failed on lap 90. A tire blew around the 100th lap during the 1956 Indianapolis 500, and Bryan spun into the south infield. He returned to the pits, his crew replaced the tire and they restarted the car to rejoin the race. The driver/roadster duo were still going strong at the end of the race and finished 15 laps behind the winner, Pat Flaherty, ultimately placing 19th. That following winter, Eddie Kuzma narrowed the chassis and built a new body for the car. Bryan qualified in the 15th starting position and ran in the top five for the last half of the 1957 Indianapolis 500. He finished third behind the winner, Sam Hanks. The roadster in front of you has been restored to its former glory, as it looked in 1957. 1958: Enter A.J. Foyt. The young rookie from Houston drove the Dean Van Lines Kuzma in the Indianapolis 500. He spun out in turn one on lap 148 after a radiator hose broke and dumped water under his tires, but Foyt still expertly managed a top 20 finish, placing 16th. • 100% combed and ring-spun cotton (Heather colors contain polyester) • Ash color is 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester • Heather colors are 52% combed and ring-spun cotton, 48% polyester • Athletic and Black Heather are 90% combed and ring-spun cotton, 10% polyester • Heather Prism colors are 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester • Fabric weight: 4.2 oz (142 g/m2) • Pre-shrunk fabric • Side-seamed construction • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping
