I don’t know about your habits, but after a long day in the garage I usually relax in my easy chair and read the latest magazine to arrive in the mail. Â Yesterday I received my last issue of R&C and thought I would look it over as the cover had two super looking Deuce 5 window coupes on the cover. Â I recognized the full fendered one but I did not know the hiboy version. Â It seems Pat Swanson in WA put together this winner utilizing an inline six for motivation. Â The unchopped version is uncommon on a hiboy but this one looks good to me. Â He selected the period parts that make this car a true hot rod. Â Good Job Pat! Â I would love some photos if anyone has some.
My weekend will be filled with company and very little car activity will take place at Pewsplace. Â Next week, I hope to have a special story about selling a hot rod to an Aussie customer which would include a trip to the port and the required arrangements for completing the transaction. Â I have never been involved in the process and I am looking forward to the experience.
Have a great weekend and relax in you hot rod.
This is a real Deuce delivery according to the owner. Â The car is an older build but is very nicely done and still looks good. Â I don’t think I could chop a real deal but this one is hammered 3 inches.
I found this one on Roy’s site and it appears to be a 1940 standard which is a rare bird. Â It also looks like an axle car which would really be nice for this classic.
I know this will bring back memories of your youth. Â Frank has this car now and will challenge all comers in TO.
I shot this one at JCP last month. Â AG cars are being built by some younger guys today and that is a good sign that the flame is still burning. Â Keep it hot baby!
How about an early FI unit for that clone black widow you are building? Â These units are very price but when Prince is done with the rebuild they work very nice on the street. Â I can actually remember taking one of these units off and replacing it with the dual carb version.
If you want a little different look try doing the “Banger” engine in your Deuce. Â This set up will cost you a lot more than the SBC.
I have been accused of only showing hiboy sedans so here is a fendered version for you guys and gals. Â Note chop, louvers and 25 louver hood.
If you don’t want the noise, the 9 inch looks good also and will save you some money. Â Washington blue is the new Red of the 80’s.
Roy selected a real dark blue for this 36 coupe and complimented it with a maroon interior and wheels. Â Very nice ride.
Today’s Rear End…..David’s got the look.
David and his dad have captured the look that makes me get down on my knees and have a closer look. Â Lobeck knows the look and built this one for David and Larry.
