    Another beautiful shot!


    Do you know if there are any existing examples of a Peugeot similar to the car that won the Indianapolis 500 in 1913?

    Yes, exactly! Thank you very much for sharing! I would love to be able to see that car in person some day.

    It is a source of pride within my family- My Great Uncle Jules Goux was the driver for Peugeot when they took first at Indianapolis 1913. The engine was the first dual overhead cam four cylinder engine raced there and provided quite an advantage. They secured the largest winning margin between first and second place at around 13 minutes. Jules Goux was an interesting character and was dubbed "The Smiling Frenchman" for famously drinking champagne at each pit stop.

    Thank you again for sharing your work here.

    Oh, that is an exciting family story - great! I'll go in a few weeks to this year's Members Meeting in Goodwood and will keep an eye out to make pictures of the Indy-Peugeot if Ivan Dutton is on the run.

    Jeff, you're absolutely right!

    @zulu42: It's really an amazing story, as I told before. So I contacted Mr. Dutton in the UK asking him if the car which he owns is maybe the one which your great Uncle Mr. Joux had driven in Indianapolis. This is a part of the answer:

    Very sorry but this is not the Peugeot driven at Indianapolis in 1913/14
    It is a recreation of that car using all 1914 parts with a 10 Litre aeroplane engine.


    It's a pity but now we know something more about this unique car.

    How very thoughtful of you to reach out to the car owner. Even though it isn't the exact car that raced Indy, it is interesting and valuable information. Thank you!
