Description - 32 Ford Deuce by Tony Thacker

In 1932, Ford produced the world's first 8-cylinder car, the "Deuce" - a design and technological milestone that would become the quintessential Hot Rod and V-8 engine car. Produced especially to celebrate 75 years of this remarkable machine, 32 Ford Deuce is a complete and authoritative history, lavishly illustrated, covering every factor of the Deuce's story: design, how it was manufactured and sold, the marketing, and racetrack success leading to it's near-mythical status. The book also lists the top 75 Hot Rod cars, in lavish color detail, with full technical specs: the Doanne Spence roadster, Lil' Deuce Coupe, American Graffiti, Coup...a two-page spread for each car, making this a must for every Hot Rod enthusiast, vintage car fan, and racing historian.
