Dearborn To Host 75th Anniversary Celebration For Legendary 1932 Ford ‘deuce’ Coupe

BRINGING IT HOME:’ DEARBORN TO HOST 75TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION FOR LEGENDARY 1932 FORD ‘DEUCE’ COUPE

DEARBORN, Mich., April 30, 2007 – Mark your calendars and plan your vacation this summer as America gathers to celebrate two automotive and cultural icons: The 1932 Ford and Henry Ford’s Flathead V-8 engine.


To commemorate the 75th-anniversary of these two landmark automotive icons, a once-in-a-lifetime celebration will take place in Dearborn, Mich., on Aug.9-12, 2007. Activities surrounding the event will include a swap meet, a concours d’elegance, cruises, specialty vehicle displays, a drive-in date night and gathering at the Henry Ford’s Greenfield Village. Co-sponsors of this event include Ford Motor Company, MHRA (Michigan Hot Rod Association) and the Early Ford V-8 Club of America. Edsel Ford will serve as Honorary Chairman, Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally as Grand Marshal and Keith Crain, Chairman of Crain Communications Inc., as Executive Advisor.


Few vehicles in history have had as great an impact on the American culture as the 1932 Ford. Trumpeted at its launch as “a revolutionary automobile,” the ‘Deuce,’ which originally cost $500 has been modified, raced, cruised, deified, celebrated in film, revised, and recreated over the past 75 years. Today, the legendary ‘Deuce’ – of Little Deuce Coupe fame – is indisputably the most sought out vehicle by restorers and hot-rodders alike. Today, restored and high-end versions of the ’32 can cost buyers well into six figures.


The Ford Flathead V-8 is to engines as the ‘Deuce’ is to cars. Built from 1932 to 1953, the engine proved so robust and adaptable to racing that it spawned a cottage industry of high-performance and racing parts. Today, the Flathead enjoys an unequalled resurgence in popularity among traditional and modern-day hot-rod fanatics alike.
