    Been collecting a lot of the pieces to this very special restoration. Still needing a few items such as a seat, covico steering wheel, jabsco pump, some Stewart Warner gauges. Be sure to follow the Facebook & Instagram fan page.
    Just type Davis & Ingram fan page.
    Please share any photos if you have any of this car ! Need all the photos I can for documentation.

    Very exciting news just surfaced about Mac Jameson, Dave McClelland & Ron Koontz Reath Automotive Fiat that became the famous Davis & Ingram Fiat was prior to all of that in the beginning (so far as of right now) the Lee’s Speed Shop from Santa Monica Fiat !! OMG [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]. The Lee’s Fiat was ran around 1961-1962 & piloted by Mac Jameson & owned by all three gentlemen Mac Jameson, Dave McClelland & Ron Koontz, then somewhere in late ‘62 Reath Automotive became their main sponsor.
    Absolute crazy history on this same Fiat that had many life’s !
    What you all think about that !

    *PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO ON THESE GUYS Mac Jameson, Dave McClelland & Ron Koontz*
