'32 Ford Deuce 3 Window Coupé (a.k.a. the Takehito Yamato Coupé)

I saw this classic Hot Rod on Chop & Roll magazine few months ago and I was stricken by the uncommon colour (PPG 1936 Cordoba Tan) and by the smooth design of this Deuce. Plus its story was really cool: built in California and shipped to Japan where its new owner lives.

Japan has a thriving hot rod scene, and many cars have been bought and shipped there. This coupe, however, is the first being built to order then making the trek across the Pacific.

Takehito Yamato contacted Walden Speed Shop, based in Pomona Ca., after seeing his works in The Rodder’s Journal.

Takehito wanted a traditional hot rod, and while that may be essentially what he ended up with, the details are what really sets this coupe apart.

Inspired by the Takehito Yamato history I built the tan Deuce with all the details you’d expect to see in a brick-built scale model.

To complete the work I built a brand-new show-room full of vintage stuff.

Thanks for stopping by.
