The Ford Deuce Coupe

If theres an iconic hot rod its Ford Deuce Coupe and Roadster, and to commemorate 75 years of blue-oval devotion starting next year, the Dearborn, Michigan based automaker has commissioned Hot Rods & Horsepower LLC of Branford, Connecticut to build one hundred versions of the classic rod.

The first Dearborn Deuce (Serial No. 7532001) has been autographed by Edsel B. Ford II, grandson of Edsel Ford, who was the designer of the original 1932 Ford, to be sold to the highest bidder at the annual Barrett-Jackson auction in January, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

One could only hope that along with the regular roundup of celebs that show up for the event, like Jay Leno who might even bring along his own 32 roadster, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys will drop by and sing “Little Deuce Coupe” before buying his own, and Paul Le Mat (John Milner) from American Graffiti fame will rev the engine before adding his signature.
