There were only two Titanium Eagles ever produced this car was the showcase car for the private team of Jet Engineering to market its Titanium Technology and their ability to produce specialized components.

The "Eagles" are the most desirable and valuable of all Indy cars. Being American built and using an aluminum stock block Chevrolet engine, Gurney set the cornerstone of what is described as the most successful and competitive racing program known as the "PPG Indy Car Racing Series".
