1924 miller 122

Second Floor- Industry

Builder: Harry Miller

Miller debuted the 122 for the 1923 racing season when a two-liter restriction on engine displacement was introduced. This 122 initially competed with a naturally-aspirated engine, but became the first supercharged Miller when it was fitted with a small centrifugal 6-inch cam-driven supercharger. Increasing horsepower from 150-250, the Miller won a 250-mile race at Culver City Speedway in 1924 with an average speed of 126.9 miles per hour. Bennett Hill drove the car to a fifth place finish at the Indianapolis 500 that same year.
