Our pals over at So-Cal Speed Shop dusted off their iconic red and white ’32 So-Cal Speed Shop Special and cruised over to The Petersen Auto Museum’s “Deuce Week,” to check out the festivities. “The Deuce” is celebrating it’s 80th birthday this year and The Peterson folks had a big time hootenanny celebrating the “Mother of all Hot Rods,” the ’32 Ford. Check out the update from So-Cal’s Facebook page.
Sporting So-Cal’s famous paint theme borrowed from the company’s belly tank Bonneville racer, this high boy was built from So-Cal’s huge inventory of Early Ford parts and accessories.
This all steel roadster is powered by a healthy 383 small block stroker mouse and a GM 700R4 automatic transmission bolted into So-Cal frame. Built in ’98 by So-Cal’s Pomona shop, this “driver” Deuce is looking as cool as it did when it was completed.
It was a good turn out for the “Deuce’s” birthday celebration with hundreds of Early Fords shined up and holding court in the Petersen parking garage. The Petersen Museum is an absolute must see if you’re in Southern California and be sure to check out the So-Cal satellite store inside the facility stocked with all sorts of cool So-Cal apparel and merchandise.
