The Brawner Hawk III was nearly left by the wayside before having a chance to shine, thanks to the four-wheel-drive Ford-powered Lotus of Colin Chapman in the 1969 Indy 500. Fortunately for Clint Brawner who developed the Hawk III, the Lotus failed, causing driver Mario Andretti to crash and the Lotus to be withdrawn. Brawner had the Hawk III ready, with its sturdy chassis and improved Ford turbo-V8. With Andretti behind the wheel, the red STP-liveried Hawk III qualified second, just behind A.J. Foyt. Andretti took the lead after the green flag fell, and while he had to run slower to maintain engine temperatures, the Hawk III outlived both Foyt’s Coyote/Ford and Wally Dallenbach’s Eagle/Offenhauser. Andretti would win the 1969 Indianapolis 500, two full laps ahead of second place Dan Gurney, marking his first and only Indy 500 win.
— Official description [1]
When Mario Andretti’s primary car broke in pre-race of the 1969 Indianapolis 500, he moved to this Ford-powered #2 STP Hawk, which the team affectionately called the ‘Cinderella car.’ Andretti went on to win in convincing fashion, leading 116 of the 200 laps. Visually this car is stunning, from its asymmetrical wing configuration, externally routed radiator tubing and almost military-grade construction. Among my favorite details are the outboard intake/inboard exhaust ports. This really makes a showcase of the no-nonsense beauty of the exhaust headers feeding the turbo perched neatly behind the triple air foils. Everything about this car is straight to the point and in your face.
