In any list of American motorsport legends, Dan Gurney's name belongs next to those of Carroll Shelby, Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, and Phil Hill. Even more impressive and long-lasting than his driving exploits, however, is his All American Racers squad, and the vehicles it developed. AAR was co-founded by Gurney and Shelby with a hefty helping of support from Goodyear, and over the years, the company built a string of highly advanced racers that won in Formula 1, Trans Am, and at the Indy 500. There was even a bike (more below.)
At this month's RM Pebble Beach auction, not just one, but four AAR vehicles have popped up, so we thought we'd take a closer look.
