It can be argued that the roots of hot rodding began on the west coast prior to World War II. While this may be true, the excitement of hot rodding soon spread throughout America and by the mid-1950s hot rodders in the midwest and the east coast were soon building cars that were serious competition to those being built in California.

One of the most famous of the early, east coast hot rods was a 1932 Ford five-window coupe known as “Satan”. The original car was constructed in 1956 by Fred Allen in Philadelphia. It was powered by a fuel-burning, 331-cid Chrysler “Hemi” engine. The car became an instant icon with its multiple racing victories including a NHRA class win in 1958. However, it was the Satan’s fit and finish which set the car apart from all other east coast hot rods and its unique style which differentiated it from all other hot rod trends of the period. Satan was well-received during the late 1950s and was featured in Rod Builder and Customizer Magazine as well as in Rod and Custom. In 1959, Monogram immortalized the hot rod by making it into one of their best-selling model kits, calling it the Devil Deuce.
Sadly, the original Satan coupe, like so many great historic hotrods, is long lost.
