1927 Ford Model T Touring owned and built by Bud Mounsey of Bud's Auto Service in Burbank, California. In Rod & Custom June 1954, Bud's Touring was tested as a part of the "Hop Up Road Test". The car was fit with 1940 Ford spindles and brakes mounted to a 1932 Ford axle and radius rod assembly. The rear end had a 3.54:1 ratio from a 1940 Mercury. The rear wheel emergency brakes were controlled by a 1949 Ford handle mounted beneath the stock T gas tank under the cowl. A 1938 Ford transmission was used with Zephyr gears. The engine was a fairly stock, but well running bored 1937 Ford 239 inch V8 which had milled tops, was ported and relieved, had aluminum pistons and was fit with 1941 Ford intake manifold and headers. The flywheel was chopped and mounted to an Auburn clutch. To cool down the engine, a Buick radiator with T tanks were installed. Other features were 1937 Willys steering and Delco shocks.[1]
