1971 Eagle-Picher Silver Eagle

It is a long-held axiom that racing improves the breed, and while the 1971 Eagle-Picher Silver Eagle is no exception, it certainly is the product of an exceptional race: the race to the moon. For the Silver Eagle runs on the same power used in the Apollo 15 mission, first in breaking its Earthly bonds, in both landing and then launching the Lunar Lander and in powering the Lunar Rover in its forays on the surface of the moon.
The 1971 Eagle-Picher Silver Eagle is scheduled to cross the block at the Mecum Monterey Daytime Auction on national television on Friday, August 17, 2012. Don't miss it!
