1932 Ford Roadster - The Holy Grail On Citric Acid
The Steve "Limey" Dennish Highboy Deuce Roadster Is All Traditional-Almost

There's a '32 roadster roaming the streets of Southern California that at first glance looks pretty traditional, but a closer look brings a parallel universe into focus. Under the hood of Steve "Limey" Dennish's Deuce beats the heart of a hopped-up Hemi engine that even the most seasoned hot rodder might mistake for Chrysler firepower. The 4.5L Daimler Hemi mill is from England, which is where Steve grew up "reading car magazines and dreaming of one day building the Holy Grail of hot rods: a 1932 Ford roadster." It only makes sense that if one is in search of the Holy Grail, it might not be a bad idea to move to Mecca.

Three Stromberg 97s sit on a one-off LimeWorks intake manifold. The Chevy S10 five-speed transmission was rebuilt by Anaheim Gear and mated with a custom LimeWorks adapter. The starter motor is from Hi Torque (Whittier).
