|Racing historian Ron
Cummings on Ak Miller's #111 car
"The Ak Miller Devin bodied
special that ran the first L. A. Times GP was his first of four, possibly
five, Devin bodied cars that he built and raced. Car #111 was Chevrolet
powered and used 1950 Ford IFS front suspension and some sort of Ford rear
live axle. Ak built a simple tubular frame for the car.
Bobby Unser was supposed
to race the car but when it started to experience crankshaft bearing failure
Ak decided to let Bobby drive El Caballo II (Kurtis
chassis) in the big Sunday race. Ak did start the race in the
Devin-Chevrolet just to see how far it would go and hopefully win some
This is the car that Ak
and Jerry Unser used in the motion picture "The Road Racers".
