Setting a Silver Dollar Standard...

Dearborne Deuce convertible top body, set it on a Deuce Steel frame

To create a silver dollar, you start with a "blank". As metaphors go, that appropriate, because we are doing the same sort of thing here. We are going to start with bare metal after-market parts and strike them into a "Silver Dollar".

fenders from California Roadster Co Dearborne Deuce convertible top body

We start with a Dearborne Deuce convertible top body, set it on a Deuce Steel frame, add some fenders from California Roadster Co., throw in a 572ci Chevy crate motor, and strike repeatedly with hammer and die. If all goes well we'll have something that will make your eyes open as wide as when you were a kid and got your first shiney silver dollar from grandpa at Christmas.
