Lot #1317 - Joe Stuban set out in 2005 to build this slick Deuce roadster. Working from a series of illustrations from the drawing board of Eric Brocksneyer, Stuban's vision of a ground-hugging, great-handling roadster began to come alive in the form of a highly functional car intended to be driven. The frame was lengthened 4.5" giving the car a 112" wheelbase. The rear 20"x10" and front 17"x7" Dayton triple-cross wire wheels feature Brockmeyer inspired black spokes laced between chrome hubs and rims. Power is by a 5.7L HEMI with custom-sculpted tubular intake system and advanced engine management technologies. The engine sends tons of power through a GM 4L60E transmission to an Inland Empire driveshaft. The steel Dearborn Deuce convertible body was lengthened to suit the chassis with all panel work to the highest standards. The fully functional convertible top was reconfigured with a flush mounted brow and repositioned center bow to give the top a speedier rake. The color by Charlie Hutton is hot Hues Jet Black Chroma topped with a ChromaPremier clear coat that looks fantastic. The interior is Basketball Orange and black Porsche leather with a beautiful dashboard and interior accents. The details are eye-catching from any perspective and the car achieves a classic roadster look with the benefit of the most modem technology. Retrotek Speed's push-button Smart Shift system does away with conventional shifters, and controls for the Air Ride system and Pioneer audio system are cleverly hidden behind the console door. The car debuted at the 2007 SEMA show and has been admired by countless enthusiasts at numerous shows. Among the car's features and awards are 2008 Street Rod of the Year Finalist at Goodguys Columbus, 2008 Fab Five Finalist at Shades of the Past, 2008 Pro's Pick at GoodGuys Nashville, 2008 Pro's Pick at Goodguys Indy, 2008 Pro's Pick at Goodguys Columbus, 2008 Pro's Pick at NHRA Louisville, 2008 Pro's Pick at Shades of the Past and 2008 Street Rod Builder Magazine Feature Car November 2008. Some more details include push-button start, power windows, solenoid activated doors, Heidts independent front and rear suspension, Wilwood 4-wheel power disc brakes, one-off Momar fuel injection, fully retractable convertible top, custom Dayton wire wheels and much more.
