Dan Gurney’s Eagle Racing Cars Dan Gurney’s Eagle Racing Cars
The Technical History of the Machines Designed and Built by All American Racers

In the more than four decades since it was founded by racing legends Dan Gurney and Carroll Shelby, All American Racers has consistently built cars that have competed and won at the highest levels of motorsports.

One of the earliest AAR Eagles made racing history in 1967 when Gurney himself drove it to victory at the Belgian Grand Prix, making him the only American in Formula 1 to ever win a GP in a car of his own making. Less than a year later, an Eagle driven by Bobby Unser would capture the marque’s first Indianapolis 500 victory, with others to follow in 1973 and 1975. Two decades later, AAR’s Toyota Eagle Mark III dominated IMSA’s Grand Touring Prototype category, scoring back-to-back drivers and manufacturers championships in 1992 and 1993.

Under Gurney’s leadership, AAR has always applied a combination of cutting-edge engineering, experimentation, and real-world driving experience to produce cars that were unmatched in their speed, sophistication, and elegance. In Dan Gurney’s Eagle Racing Cars: The Technical History of the Machines from All American Racers, author John Zimmermann delivers the definitive account of the planning, development and race history of every car built by AAR. Drawing on extensive interviews with Dan Gurney and the company’s top designers, engineers, and drivers, Zimmermann explains how each car was conceived, created, and refined for maximum performance. His descriptions and analysis are accompanied by hundreds of color and black and white photos showing each car’s journey from the drawing board to the racetrack.
