Alan Johnson Steps the Frame for Bigger Rear Tires
Street Rodder — Gerry Burger on Jan. 22, 2015
Alan Johnson has studied the 1932 Ford Deuce and in the process he has mastered the fine art of subtle modifications. Many of the changes Johnson makes to a Deuce go unnoticed to the untrained eye, and even those steeped in Deuce knowledge often miss some of the details. The end result is a '32 Ford that "just looks better than it should."
Because the unique framerail on the '32 Ford is also an exterior body panel, the chassis follows the outer line of the car very closely, and the contours of the body are repeated in the shape of the framerails. While this makes for a great looking car it also poses some problems, not the least of which is the rear framerail limits the width of the rear tire.
