No, Caballo de hierro II had a Aluminum body.

And a Hemi engine.

The Miller Devin ( pic ) had a Pontiac, I believe.

FT, cant remember where I found that first pic...

I met Miller at the Pikes peak hillclimb in 1997 I was trying to get up the hill in one of my 55 Chryslers. He was telling me about his trip to the Mille Miglia in 57 at that point I'd heard about the car but never seen it. They had brake failures early on and withdrew. it had a 354 hemi fuel injected,4 spd, lincoln rear diff, the front suspension was Curtiss?. Lincoln brakes,

I think there's a good pic of it in Johnny Lurani's Mille Miglia history. When I am home I'll check and scan it.

He was an awesome possum, for sure!

Ak Miller is the reason that Dick Nixon was a gearhead. Ak used to shop at the Nixon market in California when Dick was a kid, and he saw all the bitchin stuff Ak was rolling in...
