Yeah, you got that right.  Many guys are piecing their deuces from leftover bits & pieces these days, which is great if you have the talent or can swap for it.  In most cases though, it's still better to find a great body to start.

Neat roadster with a Caddy flathead. I wonder what the firewall mounted tank was for? Maybe alcohol for racing, or possibly water injection to control detonation. That mounting point for the split wishbone is pretty high too, the builder must have pie cut the front of the 'bone to get a decent amount of caster.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

Here is an article from Rod and Custom in 53 of my friend Ron's 32 sedan race car and daily driver. In order to make it faster he stripped it then for more speed chopped it and when that wasn't enough he channeled it. Ron is still a hot rodder and ace metal man.

My good pal Jim McGowan bought this roadster in 1951, built it into a hot rod in '52, and drove it non stop ( except for s few redo's) all over North America until he died in Nov 2012.  His son Mike has the car now.

My good pal Jim McGowan bought this roadster in 1951, built it into a hot rod in '52, and drove it non stop ( except for s few redo's) all over North America until he died in Nov 2012.  His son Mike has the car now.
TOPSTERGUY,
   WHAT A COOL ROADSTER. TELL HIS SON MIKE POPS DID GREAT. LIKE TO SEE IT UP CLOSE SOME DAY.

Alan, I was always a good boy. Yep with the police state that we are now living in you can always expect to see those red and blue lights flashing for doing 1k over the limit. Funny how the cops always give law abiding citizens a hard time. Too much trouble catching the real crooks. Oh I know who owns that little yellow Deuce Coupe. He's a nice bloke.

Wow, that's what I call a survivor. A bit of an unusual body modification to the lower corners of the rear quarters, and the tail lights are frenched in there too. Looks like some bolts showing on the frame for a crossmember. Any idea what engine/trans it runs?

Those pics with the car riding the curb and rubbing moon caps was from a scene in a movie I just watched on Netflix last week.  I only selected it because the cover pic for the movie had the "Ala Cart" on it. In the movie the Ala Cart was just parked in the background in a garage. The movie was called "Hot Rod Gang"  and had several scenes of "racing" deuces, corny but lots of hot rods

The light colored roadster (white, yellow?) is the Bob McGee roadster built with a flathead, later sold to Dick Hirschberg who installed a Corvette V8 in 1955 and then sold it to Dick Scritchfield in 1957. Scritch owned it when the movie was filmed in 1958, and eventually Bruce Meyer brought it back with a full restoration to it's 1948 look as it appeared on the cover of Hot Rod.

This 1932 Ford roadster was built by Jiggs and A.D Trowell, famed Devil's Bowl circle track racers from Dallas, TX. in 1951. Jiggs and A.D Trowell were heavily into all types of racing in the 1950s-60's, from circle track, to drag racing, to sports car racing, they were a lethal combo (Google them). The brothers owned Trowell and Turner Automotive in Dallas, an auto service center that is still operated by the Trowell family today.

  In 1951, the boys acquired a nearly new, but wrecked Oldsmobile 88, and proceeded to transplant as much of it into a mint condition 1932 Ford roadster as they could, to make the ultimate Hot Rod. The car was fitted with, and still has and early 50's Olds Rocket engine, four speed Olds Hydromatic trans, Oldsmobile rearend, steering column, steering wheel and pedals.  While they were at it, they channeled the body 5" over the frame, while still retaining the original subrails and floor. They also filled the cowl vent, shaved the doors and trunk and faired the door hinges. The brothers also hand fabricated a ton of one off parts for the car, such as hand made nerf bars front and rear, front splash apron, custom gas tank and cover, custom dropped headlight bar, custom chrome plated lift off top frame, custom plexi side curtains, etc, all are still with the car.

The roadster has many rare and coveted Hot Rod parts, such as an original, polished Edmunds 2x2 intake with Rochester 2G's, polished Edelbrock finned valve covers, and a full assortment of original Stewart Warner Wings gauges. Much money was spent dunking parts into the chrome platers' tank, just some of these parts include, engine fan, pulleys, nerf bars, top frame, dashboard, custom windshield stansions, original to the car King Bee headlights, custom headlight bar, original Deuce dropped heavy axle, front wish bones, brakes, spring, tie rod, etc, etc.

 It was raced in the 50's at road racing events, and old 1950's photos show it at the famed Caddo Mills drag strip. Later, in the 70's, it was even shown at the Dallas Autorama. The roadster spent it's entire life in Dallas until I was lucky enough to aquire it in 2008.

 This car has done it all, and has come full circle. It is totally body off restored and finished with beautiful black nitrocellulose laquer paint, exactly how it was done in 1951 ! It runs and drives beautifully and is an absolute pleasure to experience ! Comes with many, many, photos from the Trowell family throughout the 1950's as well as a clear title.

Second picture is Robert Stack, AKA Elliot Ness in "The Untouchables", he was along time hot rodder. '31 high boy with a Deuce pickup grille, running an OHV banger.
The fifth picture is the Ray Brown Roadster on a trip back East to snow country, that car is still around, seems like a collector from Florida owns (owned?) it.

The last one that Beppie says will try for the AMBR award is a posed shot, look close, the drag link is not connected to the steering arm. Can't tell you when my wife has her hair cut but I always notice goofy details in these old pics!
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I thought about alluding to it in a backhanded way, something like "if this was a modern "traditional" hot rod, it would have big headlights hanging off the ends of the frame horns", but I decided to self-censor. ;)

Another significant Ernie Sprague race car. This is the '32 Ford roadster that really thrust Ernie into the limelight. The old '32 was still running a flathead V8, but judging by the later model wheels (probably 1939 Ford), it had been upgraded to juice brakes. The sign on the front bumper reads: "1932 Ford V8 Roadster. 106 mph. 16.86 (I think) standing 1/4 mile. Prepared by Central Motors". Central Motors was the name of Ernie's car dealership before it was later changed to Sprague Motors.
From The Sprague Family Collection.
