Johnnie Davis, a retired GM machine mechanic, took notice of what the Buick- and Chevy-powered Indy race cars (used by folks such as A. J. Foyt) were using to create all that horsepower: an odd-fire V-6 design. Of course, those Indy motors had been tweaked with special GM voodoo for maximum performance, but thinking it would be a great base to work from in a hot rod, he looked into what it would take to get one between his own framerails.
Johnnie ran across a set heads and a very-rare injection system for one of these motors and he then went about collecting all of the rest of the parts for this unique engine that GM hadnt sufficiently provided to the general public, which included the camshaft, pistons, crank, and a dry sump oil system.
The heads (used on those Indy cars) use a splayed valve configuration and are equipped with stainless steel valves and Crane springs along with Crane roller rockers. Feeding the heads is a Hilborn-type fuel injection that has been converted (with help from Gemini Fuel Injection) to an electronic injection system by Davis that uses a Holley 950 Commander ECU tuned by Prodigious. Ignition is handled by a MSD 6A distributor and Taylor 10mm Pro wires, and the exhaust exits custom headers from Steve Panarites, who also stuffed baffles in the collectors before having the system coated at Pro Coat Indy. Cooling is accomplished with a Stewart aluminum water pump, a SPAL electric fan, and a Saldana radiator and fan shroud. Completing the drivetrain package is a 4-speed automatic R transmission.
With an engine that is as special and unique as this one, Johnnie chose to build the car around it rather than the other way around. He worked with Mike Ball, who created a special 32 Ford roadster pickup from fiberglass, which was modified by John Mort to include rear wheel wells, a four-inch channel job, and a mini dam, or lip, on the cowl in front of where the windshield would eventually be placed.
The body would fit to a rectangular and round-tube chassis created by Steve Panarites of Steves Auto Fab in Jamestown, Indiana. Using a 95-inch wheelbase as a guide, Steve pinched the front of the chassis and tapered the rails so they would fit to the custom body. The rear suspension uses a torsion bar and four-link setup (with the top set of arms that run through the body), a set of Pro Shocks, as well as a polished Winters quickchange (3.24:1) fitted with Wilwood disc brakes.
Up front, 41 Ford spindles were used with a Magnum axle, split wishbones, and a pair of Bilstein shocks. In this section the torsion bars run inside the frame rails. A Unisteer rack-and-pinion was also utilized, which points the 140/90-15 Dunlop-wrapped 16x3 Borrani wires (with Hallcraft hubs and stainless steel spokes) down the road. Out back, 16x8 Billet Specialties Dragster wheels are shod in Toyo 275/70-15 rubber.
Johnnie was ready to get some color on his car, so he enlisted Jamie Keister of Hot Rod Alternatives in Jamestown, Indiana. Jamie used a House of Kolor Shimrin Silver base and clear covering the exterior and interior, including the 32 Ford roadster-type dash. Johnnie then fabd an aluminum insert to fit the dash, to which six Stewart Warner Maximum Performance gauges installed.
The door panels are aluminum, too, and were created by Bill Carter (who also made the roll bar for the car) and then anodized by Colors, Inc., of Indianapolis. A bench seat, hinged for easy access, was covered in black vinyl by Interior By Ed in Mitchell, Indiana, and they also installed black wool carpet and seatbelts. Johnnie also fabd the stainless steel steering column, and its topped by a three-spoke Lobecks removable steering wheel.
