Track nosed 1923 Ford Model T Roadster owned by Rico Squaglia. According to the September 1951 Hot Rod magazine feature about the car, it was powered by a Mercury Flathead V-8; however, according to Rico's son, Rick, and the car's current owner, Carter Fisher, the car did not have an engine when it won the award. Harry Westergard made the tracknose and hood for Rico's roadster. The car was finished in flame red.
