An auction listing posted to Bring A Trailer offers up one such example, an open-topped 1927 Ford Model T, composed of equal parts absurdity and ingenuity, with parts sourced from manufacturers around the world. The body is of bespoke handmade aluminum, and the frame is a modern reproduction of the car's original frame, which was bent in an undisclosed fashion—probably a crash.

The engine, originally 189 cubic inches, was bumped up to 200 cubic inches with a modified crankshaft from a Ford Model A, and the head is a Chevrolet overhead valve design. The camshaft, too, is a modified Model A part, and the oil pump is from Volkswagen. The flywheel is a native Model T part, but like everything else, it has been modified and lightened. The seller estimates that the engine produces around 150 horsepower.
