Deuce Coupe and a Corvair ?

Deuce Coupe and a Corvair roof that is ! We had to remove the flat / pancake roof placed in this Deuce many years ago, with a roof complemented by nice curves ! The rear window area of the Corvair roof becomes the front portion of the Deuce roof, complementing the nice round curves of the original car. The Corvair roof is right at home, just as Henry may have done if he placed a full roof in a Deuce Coupe. Approximately 12 hours of hammer welding, the roof is taking shape. A few more hours of final detail work and it will be completed.

Deuce Build Update - '41 Ford Dash and Sprint Car Steering

Well the '41 Ford Dash is complete as well as the sprint car steering box utilizing a '40 Ford Column just to take away from the 'race look'..... Next work will begin on adapting the Ansen Swing Pedals which have previously been mounted. Ansen Pedals and Sprint Car Steering ? Yes, it will be fun !!!
