From Rodders Journal
Ohio hot rodder Bill Breece first completed his Deuce coupe in 1955. The full-fendered three-window was chopped and coated in rich purple lacquer, equipped with a stout Olds V8, and outfitted with pink and white tuck-and-roll upholstery. Bill drove it cross-country, competing in car shows and drag races along the way (including the inaugural NHRA Nationals in Great Bend, Kansas) and landing a Hot Rod Magazine cover for his efforts. Then before long the car underwent further changes that altered it forever. Wisconsin hot rodder Richard Munz, who owns the original, commissioned South City Rod & Custom to recreate the more famous version using a fresh Brookville steel body and loads of original, vintage hot rod parts. We feature the recreated coupe both in baremetal and in its finished version photographed in our studio and on location.
