THE DEARBORN DEUCE CONVERTIBLE IS AN ALL-STEEL ROADSTER BODY REDESIGNED AROUND AN AMAZING, FULLY DISAPPEARING TOP ASSEMBLY. A STANDARD '32 ROADSTER BODY FALLS SHORT OF THE NECESSARY REQUIREMENTS TO PACKAGE A TOP LIKE THIS, SO A COMPLETELY NEW BODY WAS DESIGNED AROUND A HIDE-AWAY TOP FOR THE NEW DEARBORN DEUCE CONVERTIBLE. IT IS THE RESULT OF THE EFFORTS OF DEARBORN DEUCE AND A MAJOR DETROIT OE COMPANY WELL KNOWN FOR ITS ENGINEERING OF OPEN AIR SYSTEMS FOR GLOBAL AUTO MAKERS. SEVERAL BODY DESIGN CHANGES WERE NECESSARY IN ORDER TO PACKAGE THIS TOP MECHANISM IN A '32 ROADSTER. KEEPING THEM AS SUBTLE AS POSSIBLE, TO PRESERVE THE ORIGINAL LOOK OF THE STANDARD VINTAGE '32 ROADSTER BODY. LOOK CLOSELY AND YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE DOORS HAVE BEEN STRETCHED 3 REARWARD TO MEET THE NEW TOP. THEY ARE ALSO RESHAPED AT THEIR FRONT EDGE TO BRING THE SIDE GLASS FORWARD. THE COWL WAS REWORKED TO ACCEPT A SPECIALLY-DESIGNED WINDSHIELD THAT MEETS THE SIDE GLASS. THE NEW SIDE GLASS IS CURVED, AND IT HAS BEEN TOOLED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THIS CAR. AN OPENING TULIP PANEL BEHIND THE SEAT STORES THE ENTIRE TOP ASSEMBLY COMPLETELY OUT OF SIGHT. DEEPENING THE COCKPIT BY STEALING 2-1/2 FROM THIS TULIP PANEL, ALLOWING YOU TO SIT BACK FURTHER IN THE COCKPIT, PROVIDING 2-1/2 MORE OF LEG ROOM. THE OUTER DIMENSIONS OF THE BODY, AND EVEN THE STOCK TRUNK LID, HAVE REMAINED BONE STOCK. THE PROFILE OF THE CAR WITH THE TOP UP, HOWEVER, PRESENTS A LONG NOSE / SHORT DECK LID LOOK, BECAUSE OF THE WINDSHIELD SET BACK ON THE COWL AND THE TOP MOVED 2 FURTHER REARWARD. IT'S AN ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC LOOK.THE TOP ITSELF IS COVERED WITH HIGH QUALITY HAARTZ CLOTH. THE REAR WINDOW IS GLASS WITH A CHROME AND POLISHED STAINLESS FRAME GIVING THE TOP THAT OLD WORLD COACH BUILT LOOK.THIS IS THE ROADSTER THAT CAN CLOSE UP TIGHT AGAINST WHATEVER MOTHER NATURE HAS TO OFFER.
