U.S.A.:Specialty builders create replica Ford ’32 Deuce Roadster

All Hot Rod, No Hassles: Specialty builders create replica Ford ’32 Deuce Roadster

By ANDREW LUU/AutoWeek

WHEN YOU’RE A COMPANY like Hot Rods & Horsepower, which lives off building steel bodies for street rodders, creative minds are bound to wonder: “What if we built our own car?”

That was the root of a decision to build a roadster and a partnership with Michigan-based specialty vehicle developer ASC Inc. By the middle of last summer a prototype was completed, and back from the automotive cemetery returned the 1932 Ford “Deuce.”

Named for its historic precursor, the Dearborn Deuce Convertible is like a cryogenically frozen specimen that has been revived some 70 years later to reap the benefits of modern technology. Of course it’s a replica, though we don’t foresee many enthusiasts complaining about this hot rod icon getting another chance to ramble the back roads or show off between stoplights.

The Deuce looks the same as its forebear with its in-your-face grille and exposed wheels, but you can forget about planning your trips with one eye on the Weather Channel. This Deuce comes with a folding soft-top that disappears under a tulip-style lid, so getting caught out in the rain is no longer a concern. Hot Rods & Horsepower also builds a three-window Dearborn Deuce Coupe replica.

Doors are lengthened 3.5 inches from the original design to ease access into the cabin and the seats are relocated two inches rearward for more legroom. The A-pillars are also redesigned, so its owners need not sacrifice the luxury of power windows, but the modification avoids compromising the ’32’s classic curved windshield and doors.

You’ll have to wait until June before you can get your hands on your own Dearborn Deuce Convertible. Prices for the fully assembled and upgradeable bodies range from $18,500 to $20,000. So far, the Branford, Connecticut-based Hot Rods & Horsepower says it has orders for 100 cars. For more information, check out hotrodsandhorsepower.com.
