The Miller Hauler colors.  The colors Stinger pick for the little truck were chosen even before he finished his last mock-up of the Hauler.  The Green Brian picked is called Lotus New Racing Green (Beach Craft).  It is Chroma One Dupont…paint number K9349G which was changed to Glasurit products using codes off the Chroma One.  The Yellow is a custom mix…”Martha Stewart 106″…that his wife picked while visiting LOWE’S.  The inside frame box plate, x-member, cross-member…is Dupont MM097.  The driveline, engine, transmission, drive-shaft, rear-end…is Dupont MM085.  The louvers on the truck are polished.  That look was applied because Brian liked the look of some louvers on various Duesenbergs he had seen.  The polished louvers fit with the polishing of the Miller grille.  Stinger actually did a number of paint test panels before picking each color and the correct look for the louvers.  Thanks to Moose (louver polish)…Warren (paint) and Tom Evans striping.

The creative bed supports were fabricated by Stinger out of 3/8 Inch tubing.  The tubing was heat and bent around a buck that Stinger made.  The flat steel is 1/4 Inch and Stinger drilled and counter sunk the holes.  The supports on the tailgate area are made to look just like the side bed supports but they double as a tailgate stop and latch pins.

Miller Hauler Engine Build Photos

The engine in the Miller Hauler is a Donovan Model D 4 cylinder all aluminum.  Brian Stinger (Stinger’s Hot Rod Shop) fit the engine with a Steve Serr all aluminum “Hi-Speed Miller” head.  He put an aluminum no-leak Steve Serr water-pump on it….but Stinger had to make a billet aluminum water-pump drop (Joe Kerr and Ron Hively – Indy) so the Model A two blade fan could be lowered to fit under the hood for as low as Stinger made the chassis sit.  The engine sits on a hand-fabricated motor mount that Stinger made and doubles as an alternator mount.  Custom billet pulleys were made by Joe Kerr.  Stinger added a Power Master alternator/generator that has been modified with stainless steel screens…a brass Kokomo electric tag….and a faux oil-cup on the back of the generator.  There is a custom flip-top cap on a billet aluminum oil filler tube that Stinger made.  Stinger also hand-fabricated a spark plug wire separator made out of 1 inch steel tubing.  There’s a custom-made dual carb intake manifold.  Stinger custom-made billet aluminum heat exchangers that run from the headers to the intake manifold.  There is a custom Stinger engine turned stainless steel heat shield that sit on top of the intake manifold.  There are two Stromberg 97 carbs turned sideways with custom linkage.  The air cleaners were fabricated by Stinger out of 1930’s Chris Craft boat ventilators.  Stinger custom made a billet plate that joins the top of the carbs together and he clam-shelled the 4 air scoops together over the carbs.  The fan shoud is a work of art.  Stinger hand-fabricated it out of six piece of aluminum and riveted it together….it mounts onto a Steve Long brass radiator.  Lawrence at Rad Rides custom machined a brass Miller valve cover insert that fits on top of the engine.  Moose at Rad Rides sanded the block for painting and final detail then Warren painted it.  Stinger spiraled machined every bolt head on the truck.  All of bolts are drilled and safety wired by Jack.
