The Dearborn Deuce Convertible is an all-steel roadster body redesigned around an amazing, fully disappearing top assembly. A standard '32 roadster body falls short of the necessary requirements to package a top like this, so a completely new body was designed around a hide-away top. Neither a true roadster nor a cabriolet, it’s called “The Dearborn Deuce Convertible”. Let the owner tell you about his build.

From the team at Reisinger Custom Rebuilding, this 1931 Ford 5 window coupe features vintage style everywhere from its front Kidron brakes to a custom Deuce chassis, and dropped ‘n drilled axle. Power comes from an incredibly-detailed 292ci supercharged Lincoln V-12 with four Stromberg 97 carburetors from H&H Flatheads while its vibrant Impact Blue color is from PPG. The car is named V-Doce which is Spanish for V-Twelve.
This 1932 Ford Phantom Roadster is named “All In” because that’s what it takes to build this award winning beauty. Designed by Chip Foose and built by One-Off Custom with a Paul Atkins interior, this ’32 Ford was built in just 188 days with 15,000 documented man hours of labor. This Brookville bodied ’32 Ford Roadster is number 3 of just 32 produced. It’s powered by a 291 Desoto Hemi and topped with 6 deuces! Awards include SEMA Battle of the Builders Top 12, and it was a contender for America’s Most Beautiful Roadster at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA.
