Many of these rare vintage race cars either won or placed well in numerous renowned events such as the Grand Prix, Le Mans, Morris Park, Briarcliff Cup, Daytona Beach, Gordon Bennett Cup, Empire Track at Yonkers, Sheepshead Bay, Indianapolis, Mille Miglia among others. Also in the collection are other marquee automobiles representing different periods of history.
The great representatives of racing history include a 1904 four-cylinder 60 hp Peerless Green Dragon, made famous by Barney Oldfield. The 1907 four-cylinder 35/45 hp Renault Vanderbilt Racer, was made famous by William Vanderbilt Jr. and referred to by some as the Ferrari Enzo of its day. The 1915 four-cylinder 100 hp Weightman Stutz was one of the fastest racers of the period, having a famous Harry Stutz-designed engine modeled after the Indianapolis winning Delage Type Y power plant. The 1929 Bugatti 35B Racer, made famous by the French driver Louis Chiron adds to the rarity of the collection. Many of the early racers in the Price Museum of Speed collection were capable of speeds exceeding 100 mph, for extended endurance periods.
