Recommended Posts

Just finishing this chopped Deuce sedan and ,just to try something different, I used a handmade brass and aluminum suicide front suspension (ahead of the grill) and sprintcar style steering, as well as cycle fenders (lathe turned to look like the old spare tire cover style).

The engine hood is fabricated in brass with tiny hinges so that it will fold in typical deuce style. Engine is a '50s style tri carb Oldsmobile (detailed with wiring, hoses, linkages, and fuel lines) and the rear axle is also late-model with handmade aluminum transverse spring, shackles and shocks etc. Carpeting is felt and the paint is basecoat/clearcoat. The grille insert is from Model car garage used on a Revell deuce roadster grille-shell.  The radiator is fashioned in polished brass, and the door hinges are made from wire and aluminum tubing
