1927 Ford Model-T roadster

Based on a 1947 Mercury frame, this '26-'27 Model-T roadster features a 1957 Buick Nailhead V8, a two-speed Chevrolet Powerglide aluminium transmission and a Winters Quick Change rear end. The rear wheels are 1950's Packard Caribean, the front wheels are 1933-34 Ford. The front brakes are Lincoln Bendix, whilc the rears are ford Bendix. The steering column and shifter are original '47 Mercury whereas the steering wheel itself is the all time favourite from a 1940 Ford.

With it's extremely low centre of gravity and direct steering, this roadster handles like a gocart.
