What happened to Pete Miles – Ken’s son in Ford v Ferrari?

ford-v-ferrariPeter Miles was 14 years old — almost 15 —  at the time of his father’s fatal crash. Shortly after his father’s death, Peter went to work for Ken’s friend Dick Troutman at the Troutman and Barnes custom car shop in Culver City, CA. Peter worked there for 14 years.

Peter joined Precision Performance Inc. in 1986. He started out as a fabricator, and then became a mechanic, before advancing to the position of crew chief. Peter was the crew chief for Ivan Stewart when Stewart won the 1991 Nissan 400 in Nevada.

In a 2019 interview, Peter revealed that the last time he went to Le Mans was in 1965 with his father Ken.

    Cool! Thanks for the information. Was he prominent in the film? I wonder if he liked the movie.

    • Dan Gardner Administrator

      He probably had the most screen time after Matt, Christian, and the actor who played Pete’s mother/Ken’s wife.

    I bought a 914-6 that Peter built from the ground up.
    would like to say “hello” for old time sake. Also worked with him installing POV cameras in the
    Toyota off road race truck.

    • Dan Gardner Administrator

      Hey Dave. That’s a really cool connection. Sounds like a cool guy.

    • Jill Florio Administrator

      DAVE! Awesome. Can you give us a photo of the 914-6?

    I remember that car well ! Peter and I were neighbors in the Hollywood hills (early 70’s) and he came over one day and introduced himself because I had a 67 Cooper S that caught his eye. We became friends and he frequently helped me with my mini and even gave me a few driving lessons. He had this little monster Renault 4c at the time that he built to the gills. I think it was after he started at Troutman Barnes he got the 914-6. It had many upgraded bits on it that were cast offs from the “big” Porsche’s that were being modded for racing. He took me for a few rides in that little beast. It was the first time I really went fast ! Then one day he showed up in a little red Japanese pick up and I asked where’s the Porsche? He had to sell it because he got married etc…….. he was heart broken & so was I.

    BTW- If anybody has ANY contact info on him, I’d really like to get in touch just to say hello and thank him for helping me out so much way back when.

  • Dan Gardner Administrator

    Billy, that is unquestionably the coolest comment I’ve ever read on this blog. Thanks for sharing. I don’t have any contact info on Pete. But rest assured, if anyone ever comments here with info about his whereabouts I’ll personally make sure you get it.
