This large Yonezawa toy represents the 1961 Indy 500 winning machine driven by AJ Foyt. After having experienced the ire of "Aggie" Agajanian in 1953, Yonezawa was not about making the same mistake and called the toy "Speed King" instead of "Bowes Seal Fast Spl". The toy is quite rare in this large 17" size, and was sold in a superbly illustrated box.
