You got it, Kelly, It's a Dearborn Deuce.


They made 300 steel kits, and I'm not sure how many in fiberglass.


They're a little longer and wider than a stock '32, and a lot heavier. The neatest part about them is the hideaway convertible top.

This is one that belongs to a friend/customer of mine.


Kelly, the floor is yours.....

One (as far as I know only one) US manufacturer used a fastener called a "clutch head". the question is what company, what years, and where was it most commonly used? I know this is probably to easy for most of you, but it is the only thing that comes to mind at the moment.

Ford used clutch head bolts on their door strikers for years. I had them on my 55 T Bird.

Chevy used them, my 48 truck the doors were full of them still when I got it and bought a Snap On clutch head driver around 1978! They used them in the window regulator and door latches.

My '64 Buick Grand Sport steering wheel is held on with 6 or 8 clutch head screws.

Now I know Brian wonders what I am doing with a Grand Sport steering wheel.

I'll give it to you Brian. Sorry 496, I did not know Ford used them. I had Chevy in mind as I have taken probably a thousand out the last few 55,56 interiors. From what I can gather Chevy used them from 46-66 mainly on the interior. The floor is yours Brian.

496 didn't answer that question, BB did. And it was the first correct answer.

My apologies sir, if you would like to go that is fine with me. I just had Chevy or GM on my mind since thats what I am familiar with them being in. If Ford used them I take your word for it. Your floor.
