Description[]

Car Index[]

"This "High Boy"-style hot rod was displayed at the Henry Ford Museum."

When it comes to custom cars, the U.S. ranks number one in terms of quality, volume and genre. And, by far, the oldest genre - one that is now an iconic part of American culture - is the hot rod. This was a movement that originated in the 1930s, where the Ford Model T, and later the Model A and Model B, were heavily modified by their owners. Extensive exterior modifications were performed on these cars, such as removing fenders and engine hoods, and altering the body to make chop-tops. Later, as newer and more powerful engines were developed elsewhere in the world, they then were mounted into these vehicles.

The most well-known platform for this practice was the Ford Model B. Why? Not just because it was the first car of the era to be powered by a V8, it was also quite rare - the Model B was only produced for a single year, in 1932.

The vehicle with number plate "V-3883" displayed in the Henry Ford Museum is one such car based on the Model B, carrying the nickname of "Deuce". It was built by Richard Smith of Phoenix, Arizona, in 1954, with US $2800 (a considerable sum back then) and a massive amount of time and effort. The V-3883 is a classic "highboy" style hot rod, with removed fenders, but the engine has been swapped for a 177.5 HP Chrysler 331 Hemi. The side panels have been cut and modified to accommodate the wide engine, and the engine covers are now part of the exterior accents. This is a car that has been crafted to the very last detail; it is a simple, yet beautiful example of the "good old days".

Legend Car Dealership[]

If you're looking for a car that will really give you a taste of traditional American hot rod culture... then the 1932 Ford Model B, or "Deuce", as it is affectionately called, is a great place to start. The name "Deuce" comes from its two-door configuration. Popular as a base for customization... it is a prime example of a custom hot rod.
