America's Most Beautiful Roadster crowned at 2013 Grand National Roadster Show
Oddly enough, according to Hemmings, the inspiration and desire for this car actually came from a set of rare Ardun heads, which Mumford had collected wanting to make the focal point of a hot rod. After sending the car off to hot-rod builder, Roy Brizio, the heads are just one of many reasons to love this particular roadster. Just to show how competitive the event is, Mumford's '27 Roadster beat out a '33 Ford Roadster that had set a pair of speed records at Bonneville last year and a '32 Ford High Boy Roadster owned by Ford executive vice president Jim Farley.
