Deuce Convertibles at Barrett Jackson
It's Barrett Jackson time again. The January auction in Scottsdale, Arizona always brings out exciting vehicles, often vintage or celeb-owned cars but our siblings at Autoblog report that one of Ford's 75th Anniversary Deuce convertibles will be auctioned off January 16 or 17, with the proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The snazzy car was constructed by Hot Rods and Horsepower and has a 32-valve 348 V8, custom leather interior with 75th Anniversary logos in one of HR&HP's replica all-metal '32 Ford Dearborn Deuce bodies. The car has a retail value of $250,000.
Other hot cars at the auction include CNN's Warrior One, a 1993 Hummer used by embedded journalists, a 1930 Dusenberg J, and the "Last" Corvette, a 1967 Coupe which was the last C-2 series Corvette ever built.
