1927 Ford Model T Roadster owned by Modesto Century Toppers member Gene Winfield of Modesto, California. Gene bought the Model T Roadster after selling his 1931 Ford Model A Roadster.[1]

After buying the car, Gene Z'd the front and rear of a Model A frame for the roadster. He built his own dropped and filled axle and dropped steering plate, that he also got chrome-plated. Winfield equipped the Ford flathead engine with a dual-carb setup and a Winfield Cam.[1]

In 1950 Gene displayed the car at the first Oakland Roadster Snow. With a number 237, Gene must have been one of the late entries.[2]
