1933 saw Louis Meyer win his second of what would be three Indianapolis 500 wins, driving an 8 cylinder Miller rear wheel drive.

Sources such as the Jack Fox Indianapolis 500 book report this car as being red and cream. However we think this is in error for several reasons: First, the Fox book has numerous verifiable errors regarding car colors. Second, a google image search indicates that Tydol/Veedol motor oil company used orange as thier main color. It appears that red was used after merging with Flying A gasoline in 1938. Third, a Tydol add from 1933 that can easily be found online depicts the stylized, hand-drawn car with orange numbers and logo. Lastly from a graphic design standpoint, red type on black is much harder to discern than orange on black. As a result and much debate with other Indy car modelers we have decided to produce this set of decals in orange and black to go on the cream colored car.
