27 T Roadster body ID request

I have been looking at all the fiberglass bodies I can find. They all look similar, but this one below seems slightly different. Usually the area below the "door" is only a few inches, this one is longer and gives the look of a channeled frame.

Does anyone know who makes a body like this?

27 T Roadster windshield frame ID request

I've seen similar windshield frames as this, but not this exact one. I'm sure I'm just overlooking it somehow, but could someone point me in the right direction please.

Thanks.

Probably stretched and with an added rocker by the builder..

Duvall style..hard to say where it came from..lots of that sort of thing was made by the builder..

Seeing the screws and wind lace on the cowl and the top brackets poking up, are we sure it's glass?

I love the 26-27 T Roadster, one of my favorite bodies. I did a little google search to see if I could find your mystery body and couldn't, but I didn't end up empty handed, found a couple of friggin awesome cars to drool over.
