Last week, we posted a picture of a custom-bodied 1954 Curtis 500 KK on Facebook, and many of you absolutely loved it. So we decided to give it more attention today.
Kurtis Kraft was a company founded by Frank Kurtis that designed and constructed race cars. The company built midget cars, quarter midgets, sports cars, sprint cars, Bonneville Cars and USAC Championship Cars. It was founded when Frank Kurtis built his own midget car chassis in the late 1930s.
Between 1949 and 1955, Kurtis also built a series of low-slung fiberglass-bodied two seat sports cars.
