1932 Ford "Deuce" Roadster.

Actually, you might call this one a "Double Deuce" roadster since it has a "Dearborn Deuce" body riding on a "Deuce Steel" frame by Hot Rods & Custom Stuff (yours truely).

Girls have their "basic black dress", guys have their "basic black shoes", and hot rodders have the "basic black roadster", which is sort of a karmic blending of both, especially when it comes with the dulcet tunes of a flathead V8 motor. Add a little red pinstriping and it's time to step out and go cruisin'.

There is nothing we enjoy doing more than building a no-frills traditional roadster. But "no-frills" doesn't mean it can't be "state-of-the-art". Dearborn Deuce's new roadster body is definitely an iimprovement over the one's Henry Ford produced and this one has their new integral soft top that folds back into the body so that you don't have to mess with after market tops that take up your trunk space. It also sports a custom Deuce Steel frame built here at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff. The frame's front rails are longer and have a greater curvature which gives the roadster a lower stance (about 2-inches), without having to use a dropped axle.

The pinstriping was done by the renowned Pete "Hot Dog" Finlan.

Nestled between the 50's style Pontiac tail lights, is a Bob Drake license plate frame with lighted Mooneyes plate bolts.

The front end is supported by a chromed Pete & Jakes "Super Bell" 46-inch I-beam axle cushioned with chromed Bilstien hot rods shocks. The shocks connect to the frame withthe help of a pair of HRCS designed shock mounts that do double-duty as headlight mounts. A custom support bar connects them.

A set of 4 Wheel Vintiques 14 Series wheels (powder-coated red), complete the look. The fronts are 15x6's and the rears are 15x8's (3-3/4" backspace all around). The trim rings and caps are from Wheel Vintiques as well.
