Baja's 'Big Oly' Bronco
Designed by Vel’s Parnelli Jones Racing, Big Oly was one of the first purpose-built off-road race cars to compete at Baja. Built from scratch, it featured a chromoly tube-frame one-off chassis and Bronco-style fibreglass body. The legendary off-roading team of Bill Stroppe and Parnelli Jones raced Big Oly from 1970-1974 and accumulated numerous victories, including back-to-back wins at the Baja 1000 in 1971 and 1972. Big Oly is part of the new exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum, ‘Legends of Los Angeles’. For more details on this and other exhibits at the Petersen, click on the link below.
