1913 Ford Model T Roadster owned by Don Tognotti of Sacramento, California. Known as "King T," the car was built by Don and Gene Winfield of Winfield's Custom Shop. The build was started in July of 1962, and completed in 1964. It featured a Wild Pearl Lavender paint job, laid by Gene Winfield in 1963. It was shown at the 1964 National Roadster Show, where it won the America's Most Beautiful Roadster award.[1]


When the car was restored, Gene Winfield was asked to re-create the original paint job. In 2007 he flew to Seattle to paint the car.[1]


In 2010 the car was sold at the Barret-Jackson Scottsdale auction. The price was $85,800.00.[1]
