Description
1932 Ford roadster that has undergone a complete show quality Pro Build to the highest standards with one goal in mind, creating the baddest '32 roadster that ever cruised the streets. No expense was spared in the creation of this car, the attention to detail is second to none. The Deuce rides on a fully boxed Pro-Street frame, highly modified to withstand the punishment from its 1,100+ horsepower 540cid all-aluminum HEMI engine. Front suspension is a fully chromed dropped tube axle with 4-bar and transverse leaf spring. Steering is easy with the "Unisteer" rack & pinion setup and tilt column. Rear suspension consists of a shortened 9" with a polished aluminum center section and posi-traction 3.73 gear set. All chrome fully adjustable 4-link with diagonal track bar, coilovers and 7/8" custom sway bar. All four corners have huge Wilwood disc brakes with 2-piece drilled rotors and polished calipers with a fully polished dual circuit Wilwood master cylinder. The engine is an all-aluminum Mopar Performance 540 HEMI belting out over 1,100hp yet still runs on high octane pump gas. It has a slightly overdriven Blower Shop 8-71 blower topped with two 850cfm Demon carburetors. Fired by an MSD 6AL ignition and a Pro-Billet distributor. Complete Aeromotive Pro-Stock fuel delivery with integrated regulator, cooler and return lines. The Moon tank up front is an overflow for the cooling system. Exhaust is fully custom and ceramic coated. The transmission is a fully polished and worked TCI Street Fighter with 3,500rpm stall convertor. Both the engine and transmission have external coolers with electric fans. The body is an all-steel Brookville that has been fitted and massaged to insure a laser-straight finish and excellent door and trunk gaps. Every bit of this car including the frame has been color sanded and buffed. The Jet Black paint is a 2-stage PPG and looks a mile deep. The windshield is a curved glass chopped Wanless frame. The firewall was recessed for the huge engine and has a custom polished aluminum firewall. The grille shell has a custom made stainless grille insert. The interior is top grade Italian leather finished in Ferrari Red. The seat was designed to give maximum foot room and the brake and throttle controls were placed for driver comfort. All of the carpets including the trunk are German wool. The roll bar is a fully functional part of the chassis. For added safety the car has Simpson race belts. Every part on this car is either chrome, polished stainless, or polished aluminum. Every nut and bolt has a show quality finish. All lines are stainless with Aeroquip AN style fittings. This car looks very intimidating but it is an easy driving car. The engine fires up and idles immediately with no feathering of the throttle. It runs cool and stops on a dime. It is truly a pleasure to drive. This car is fast.
