I have been focused on the Deuce in recent weeks as I joined the Deuce’s and 40’s Facebook page and I have never seen so many beautiful Deuces in one place. I currently don’t own a Deuce but I have owned over 25 during my hot rod days. They seem to be everywhere you look including the new repo bodies that are under construction in several shops across the country. Original ones are still available if you are the purist seeking to have bragging rights. Remember, you will have to spend a lot of money bringing them back to pristine condition. Reproduction bodies are a bargain compared to the original deals and for a hot rod – are the way to go in my mind. If you like them chopped and modified, it is an easy decision for those wanting to be driving in the next year or so. I always wonder why I hear conversations that start off with; “It is a repo you know.” or “Is it a glass car?” I guess some people are really focused on the old school approach to building a hot rod and that’s O.K. by me, but I sure admire the person who builds the car for driving and isn’t concerned about its origin. I like all of them.
Here are some of Henry’s finest Deuces for your weekend rides.
Scrub has been busy on his 3 window. Note the famous purple wheels which I presume is the same as his 40 coupe.
The little Red Ram looks good in the Deuce. I believe Â the Ardun – New York must be misplaced.
Here is a tasty Deuce sedan that sure sits right. The front tire tucked up in the fender really makes a sedan look good. Seldom seen white wall tires also look good with the blue paint.
Bruce’s Rod Shop builds some very stylish Deuces such as this 5 window coupe with Indy style wheels.
Bruce also built this roadster with the same wheels and flathead powered. I think this car was at the LARS last year.
You gotta love this 3 window with the Hemi, dual carbs and chrome grille shell.
Here is your basic black 5 window that is a standout and looks new but has many miles on the road traveling to the events in the center of Hot Rod Heaven.
A different take on the popular Deuce hiboy roadster. Basic black with unique owner touches. Nice!
Steve Coonan made it to Austin for the Roundup. He has a new Winters QC which should keep him company when his iPod is turned off. Steve was the caretaker of the famous Lobeck roadster for several years.
I like Deuces without fenders and this little basic black 5 window would look good in my garage.
A very rare Barker V-drive with dual Wico Magneto’s is shown here on the flathead. I have seen a couple of this but they are scarce today.
