Pearl paint, Cadillac power, and a fully customized interior bring this Deuce to revitalized glory. Old school rodding methods were respectfully incorporated along with era parts, making her a new, 1958 rebuild. Reconstruction by a talented hot rod shop, Gary’s Garage (Midland, MI), she now resides in Newton, Iowa. She has a clean, clear IA title in our Owner’s name.
Dark Cherry Pearl was the final choice, bringing our Deuce Sedan to a stunning proscenium. When you study her lines, you will no doubt realize she’s been filled at the seam. This is true lead, much from her original 1958 malleable metal transition and respectfully completed. There is no fiberglass on this car. What brightwork remains is beautiful and helps to accent those stunning body lines. Pictures really do say a thousand words.
Completed during her 2015-17 resurrection, high grade white vinyl was chosen to deck her interior halls. Classic tuck and roll patterned, gold thread and trim accent and help off-set the white. Gauges are modernized and the 6,250 miles represent her use since completion. Stem to stern, her interior is luscious and grand.
Maintaining the inspiration for early era hot rods, an early 60’s Cadillac 390 cid V8 motor was selected as her power plant. Rebuilt and primped, it fills the engine bay with curious beauty. Your eye will gravitate to the motor’s upper and focus on the twin carbs, so fitting for a Deuce. The discerning will spot the classic Edmonds intake manifold, considered a golden chalice in the hot rod world. Her three-speed manual tranny comes from a ’39 Ford and has been rebuilt. At the rear we complete the running gear with 1940 Ford Banjo differential containing 3.24 gearing. Hydraulic braking activated drums in each corner, again era 1940 Ford. And, of course, she has been modernized to 12 volt electrical.
A thorough review was performed by the objective crew from Lemon Squad. An interesting opinion on paint thickness was written and the Inspector was very in depth when performing his evaluation. A few very minor flaws were noted in the paint work. At the interior, she is wonderful and shows just a bit of wear. Mechanically, her motor ran well, and she performed well during the test drive. Of note was a grind while the transmission was shifted into high gear. Overall, she is in very, very nice condition.
Started in the 1950’s, she was an enthusiast’s dream, and his early passing left her incomplete. Discovered as a classic barn find in Kansas, she was still not yet completed but simply displayed in a collection. It wasn’t until 2015 that the dream found a new start and her classic reconstruction began. Completed in 2017, we find history, respect, and old school charm in a stunning show piece. Award winner and simply beautiful, she will turn heads as the center of any stage, the quintessential ‘hollywooded’ beauty.
