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"
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
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.
