If you're like most gearheads, you remember the days when modifying your hot rod meant removing extra parts, cutting a little metal and hammering out some fresh curves. But, as time progresses, technology progresses, and what once existed as merely a backyard hobby has now grown into a hyper-competitive, multi-million dollar industry. Today, unless you have a decade and deep pockets, it takes a serious plan and highly skilled craftsmanship to even think about competing with the world's best street rods. And when it comes to planning and craftsmanship, it doesn't get much better than this all-steel Dearborn Deuce. 1 of only 100 cars built to honor the 75th anniversary of Ford's iconic hot rod, and 1 of only 10 Edsel Ford II Signature Series cars, this slick little roadster is a world class custom that'll fulfill your needs faster, and cheaper, than any project you've spent years idealizing. And what's better: with names like Roush, Bowler, Detroit Street Rods and bonspeed on its specs sheet, this Ford-authorized creation will outperform and outlast just about anything on the road!


When building a top-notch showstopper, you have to start with an excellent foundation. In the world of modern street rodding, it doesn't get much better than 850 pounds of Dearborn Deuce sheetmetal. Twice as heavy as most all-steel reproductions, and, in fact, featuring a substructure that weighs as much as most competitors' entire bodies, every Dearborn Deuce is stamped, welded and sealed by the same Detroit entities that supply major OEM automakers. That level of precision results in a reliable and authentic custom that, in addition to requiring minimal paint prep, retains ALL of its original lines, functional parts and structural integrity. Its seems only natural then, that this Deuce's stunning body displays smooth vertical panels and an arrow-straight profile that would give any high dollar garage queen a serious run for its money. And, since a profile that nice deserves to be seen and celebrated, it wears smooth E-coat primer under BASF high-bake urethane that reflects a distinct combination of Cheri Pie Red and 8-Ball Black.

All 100 of these tailored Hi-Boys were delivered through official Ford Racing Performance and Ford Motor Company dealers. Since the cars were exceptionally well-done, it's easy to see how they fit right in with Ford's swathe vision of attractive, customer-specific mobility. At the front of this Deuce, color-keyed frame horns hang a polished spreader beneath polished H4 headlights, a custom stainless grille and an all-steel, "Ford" branded shell. Behind that shell, a 1-piece hood runs silver pinstriping toward a stainless-trimmed, Dearborn-installed windshield that's anchored between traditional mirrors and small wipers. Above those wipers, tight Haartz cloth centers a stainless-trimmed glass backlite inside a Dearborn-designed, OEM-style top that fully integrates into the car's smooth rear deck. And at the bottom of that deck, stylish LED teardrops illuminate polished exhaust tips, a second polished spreader and a small, body-matched fuel tank.


In typical hot rod fashion, you'll find eight hot cylinders of all-American muscle. However, instead of some romantic relic from a bygone era, would-be challengers are facing 342 cubic inches of Roush Performance Boss Stroker V8 that twists 450 horsepower into 415 lb./ft. of torque! Built from the ground up as your ticket to major acceleration and killer speed, the stout mill sips a steady stream of fuel through optional Accel digital injection that's sandwiched between a Roush Cobra Jet air cleaner and a lightweight aluminum intake. Those fossils are ignited when an Accel distributor shoots spark around aluminum Roush heads via loomed Roush 9mm plug wires. Those heads float between polished Ford Racing breathers, familiar Ford Racing valve covers and custom Technosports headers. Cooling comes courtesy of a beefy radiator, which circulates water past a large electric puller fan and an MSD Blaster 2 coil. And at the front of the block, a beefy serpentine system spins a polished alternator opposite a coated AC compressor. Aesthetically, the hot engine looks right at home in the car's mirror-like bay. And well-planned details, like stainless fuel lines, trick dipsticks and braided coolant lines, are both functional and appealing.


Under this impressive custom, a Bowler AODE 4-speed spins power to a tough Dynotech driveshaft, which jerks a proven Ford 9-inch that's fitted a posi-traction differential and 3.89 gears. That axle rides in a triangulated 4-link suspension, which is dampered with adjustable QA-1 coil-overs that wrap chrome springs around powdercoated shocks. Opposite that polished 4-link, a 4-inch dropped front-half strings a forged and drilled I-beam between chrome PRO Shocks and chrome hairpin radius rods. That suspension rolls under a boxed Detroit Street Rods frame, which floats '32 Ford rails and a Model A crossmember in E-coat primer and high-bake urethane paint. Solid stops come courtesy of polished Wilwood 4-piston calipers, which utilize a floor-mounted booster and braided stainless lines to squeeze 13-inch vented rotors behind 11-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Outside of those brakes, custom bonspeed blades spin 245/45R18 Goodyear Eagle RS-As in front of 285/40R20 Goodyear Eagle RS-As. A high octane soundtrack is provided by deep, glasspack-style mufflers and large, Mandrel-bent tubes. And the car's welded, .125-inch floor outlines acute details like a deep-sump oil pan, quality Earl's fuel components, a spry Powermaster starter, and proven Pete and Jake's finishing components.


Inside this awesome roadster 'class' is the name of the game as spectacular red and black ultraleather creates a fun and stylish complement to the car's 2-tone paint. Pop the doors and you'll find an adjustable Detroit Street Rod bench that's both firm and supportive. At the sides of that mitt, rolled panels hang stylish ultraleather pulls in front of Dearborn power windows. Below those panels, like-new carpet anchors a short shifter opposite a polished e-brake and billet foot pedals. At the front of that carpet, a boxed and welded dash centers Classic Instruments telemetry between an Edsel Ford II signature plaque and controls for the car's Vintage Air climate system. In front of the driver, a polished Banjo-style steering wheel spins a leather wrapped rim around a painted, tilting column. And behind the passengers, a fully upholstered trunk provides a bit of leather-lined utility.
