The body is modeled after a Deuce Roadster, which is a modified 1929-1933 Ford Model A, the 350 C.I. Chevrolet V8 was introduced in 1967, this is a remake of a classic American street rod.

@Mental
Source is CarandDriver . They refer to the original 1932 deuce and do test same original model. Please refer to the link above.

A red coffin. American hot-road.

But, damn, I really doubt those numbers were achievable in 1932... Seriously...

And was only 1932 the production year of this Deuce? Or it is still in production, and can be afforded for $125k new now?

This car is streetlegal today. Or should it have been legal in 1932?

Maybe the base of this car was built in 1932 but not the entire car. In 1932 there wasn't Chevrolet small-block engine and automatic transmissions didn't existed. The first automatic car produced in 1939! And you really think that a road legal car built in 1932 could do 0-60 in 5 sec? This car should be deleted!

Cool, a Deuce roadster with a 350 C.I. small block Chevrolet crate motor, I'm kind of disappointed by the transmission, though, I would have expected a 4 on the floor.

"For a 125,000$ re-creation, you would expect a better transmission and brakes."

You have to note:
It was built in 1932!

Because I already knew it. ;)

@ Fangio Man
Appreciate my friend.
I must say, I am stunned if not shocked by its performance figures considering it was built in 1932. Even for today's standards noone would laugh at those acceleration figures.
