1953 Ford El Caballo De Hierro news, pictures, specifications, and information
Roadster
 
In 1953, legendary hot rodder and NHRA's first Vice President, Ak Miller, decided to challenge the high priced European sports cars with an all-American hot rod. Ak entered 'The Iron horse' in the Carrera Panamerica Mexican (Mexican Road Race). He drove 3,300 miles from Whittier, CA, to Mexico, and finished eight in the large sports car class and fourteenth overall. The following year the team was fifth in class and seventh overall behind some very expensive Ferraris. They average 94.1 mph for the 1,921 mile race.

Ak Miller was the driver with Dough Harrison as co-driver. The car is powered by a 1951, 340 cubic-inch, V8 Oldsmobile engine.
