They say choosing your favourite build is like choosing your favourite child! We asked Gene Winfield what his top 3 favourite builds are:
3. The Reactor
A futuristic aluminum show-car featuring a semi bubble windshield and top, a turbo charged Corvair front wheel drive on a Citroen chassis and twist wrist steering. Completed in 1965, the car was originally built for Connecticut show promoter Joe Kizis.
A chopped and channeled 1950 Mercury that featured four sculpted wheel wells with stainless inserts. Push buttons opened the doors all the way, and the front seats pivoted outside of the car. Powered by a Buick Nailhead engine, the build was completed in 1963.
Leroy Kemmerer’s 1956 Mercury. This was Gene’s claim to fame. Featuring a 4 inch sectioned body and Gene’s until then most radical paint job, the car put Gene on the map nationwide! The build was completed in 1959.
