1955 Kurtis "500" Jr. Quarter Midget

Second Floor - Industry

Designed by legendary race car builder Frank Kurtis and his son Arlen, the “500” Jr. Quarter Midget was intended to resemble a full-sized Kurtis race car. The racer employs a steel frame upon which the body is mounted. In addition to quarter midgets, Kurtis also produced a slightly larger half midget and later the Kurtis Kart, which was unibodied. Kurtis manufactured vehicles locally in Glendale, California.
