My 32 is my dream car since I was a kid living in Portland Ore. My brother bought me a Big Deuce 32 ford roadster, cast in red, by the Monogram model corporation. It was a Xmas gift, and my best friend Richard also received one but his was cast in yellow. Ever since then in 1963 I have loved the 32 fords of all body styles. I traded a nice little 57 two dr. sedan for this car, and love every time I drive the 32.
This is the Big Deuce model I mentioned. I put a 65 Vette engine in it with a muncie 4 sp. from the Monogram 1/8th scale, same as the Big Deuce. The wheels and tires came from the Monogram Big T, also 1/8th scale. I had saved this model from 1963 to 1998 collecting other parts from the other two that it took to complete this one car.
This model looks so real I once showed some pictures to some friends I had only known for a short time and the said, you dog you never told me you had a 32, and I said, that it took me 30 years to build. Then in one of the pick's, one of the guy's noticed a wooden couch leg in the top right corner of the picture and said hey lance this isn't a real car is it and I said well you are looking at it aren't you, its real for sure but it is to small to drive. Then I got the evil eye from them, but they said the model was very cool any way.
