Deuces at Bonneville

Deuces have been raced, or on the sidelines, at Bonneville since the SCTA began racing there in 1949.  This pic thread celebrates that history.

3w coupe.

Thanks Tom, neat to see the F. G. Ferre sponsored coupe. Fred & Ted Ferre were great people and sponsored many Salt Lake area racers. Drag racers, Stock Car racers or Land Speed racers. They even helped me out on sponsorship for a couple of cars I had back then.
 
They were the first speed and custom accessories shop in the area, starting in the very early 50's and finally closing in the mid 70's to become a automotive parts warehouse/distributor.

I paid homage to them with the logo lettered on my 3-window, down to their original phone number.

I always wondered about the significance of that on your coupe, that’s a nice tribute. Well played Mick!
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

This 3-window appears to be the orange 211C deuce that's pictured above racing at Bonneville.

The bobbed front fenders are not often seen.

Sorry, I seem to keep hi-jacking Tom's great thread.

No apologies necessary Mick.  Any further info/history on these pics is always appreciated.  And yes it sure looks to be the same car.
