After seeing this car in the June 2010 "Rod and Custom Magazine" I had to build a model of it.

This car was originally built in 1951 by Bob Joehnck for owner and driver Jack Quinton, who raced the car from 1951 - 1962.
It set several records at El Mirage and Bonneville, and could be seen on the drag strips in Ponoma, Santa Ana and Santa Maria.
The restoration is roughly based on the 1954 variation of the race car.
hope you enjoy the results:

Another great one, Curt.

I was so glad to see that someone with your clean build style was going to build this clean example of a 32 coupe.

You really did her up nice!

Wow, you did an awesome job of capturing the beauty of this car in scale. That flathead looks serious with 4-2's lined up across it! I think most impressive (for me anyhow) is the interior details. From the perforated door panels, to the roll bar and that perfectly replicated seat.

I've been able to stand next to the real car and it is truely one of the coolest Deuce 3-Windows I've seen. Rudy's restoration is probably 10x cleaner than the car ever was back in "the day".

Yes, Curt, this is really nice. I remember looking at this in the magazine too. I really like the vibrant blue, and the detailing on the carbs is top notch.
