Detroit Street Rods, LLC (DSR), a management company formed by ABS Partners, LLC and Dearborn Deuce, LLC, announced today that the company was awarding the paint and assembly of Ford's 75th Anniversary Deuce roadsters to Saleen Incorporated's Troy, Michigan production facility. Saleen recently painted and assembled the classic Ford GT sports car at this facility.
Last fall, Ford announced plans to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 1932 Ford, noted for the advanced styling by Edsel Ford, Henry's son, and the performance of the first mass-produced V8 engine, the Ford "flathead." Although in production for only a single model year, the Deuce has become an American icon as the quintessential hot rod. In addition to numerous celebrations and events planned for the coming year, Ford officially licensed DSR to produce 100 Deuce roadsters to commemorate the anniversary.
The Ford 75th Anniversary Deuce is based on the highly acclaimed and award-winning Dearborn Deuce TM roadster that combines the beauty of Ford's original highboy design with contemporary technology.
The first Anniversary Deuce was actually built for Edsel Ford II, Edsel's grandson, and gifted to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to sell at January's Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., where the roadster brought $330,000 for the charity. Fred Blum, DSR's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, expects Anniversary Deuces to roll down the Saleen assembly line by April 1 and that's "no April Fools joke."
The remaining 99 Ford 75th Anniversary Deuces, including ten Edsel Ford II-signature models, are currently being sold through Ford Racing Performance and select Ford dealers starting at $165,000. Contact Blum at 336-215-6553 (Fred@DetroitStreetRods.com) for more sales and product information.
