1927 Ford Model T Roadster built by Marvin Whiteman. Marvin built the car at age 16, with good help from his friend Tom Beatty. Marvin used his roadster both at the streets, and at the lakes. The car was powered by a stroked 59A Mercury Flathead equipped with Navarro heads & triple carb intake. The car was painted dark green in 1951. The body featured a track nose made from a modified Kurtis Kraft midget nose and grille.

In 2007 the car was sold on E-bay. Marvin had moved to Idaho, and brought the car with him. According to the HAMB the car is now undergoing full restoration.
