Dearborn, Michigan – Ford is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the groundbreaking 1932 Ford, popularly known in classic car circles as “The Deuce” and considered the quintessential hot rod, as well as being the car that introduced the first mass-produced V8 engine.
Ford will mark the occasion at this weekend’s Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, where a limited-edition, officially-licensed 75th Anniversary Deuce autographed by Edsel B. Ford II will be on display. The car, an all-steel replica built by Hot Rods & Horsepower, will be auctioned off in January 2007 at the Barrett-Jackson Auction to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Ford will also display 75 of the most significant 1932 Fords at the Grand National Roadster Show in California on January 26 to 28, 2007.
