Production Dearborn Deuce Convertibles debut at York, PA June 2004
Full production has now begun on the much-awaited ’32 roadster body with its innovative disappearing top. An impressive lineup of production bodies at the NSRA Nats East in York, Penn. on June 4, 5, and 6th, 2004 clearly demonstrated production capabilities.
After producing the first 300 bodies, production has moved from ASC to Oakley Industries, the same company that had stamped the body panels since the inception of our roadster. In September 2006, we began releasing the next generation of Dearborn Deuce Convertible roadsters from Oakleys production facility in Clinton Township MI. Oakley has met all our expectations and we are proud to be working with their experienced team. Visit them on the web at
