This particular car is a genuine one-of-a-kind 1932 Ford Sportsman roadster. It was entirely hand crafted by its original owner, Max Lundquest, with the assistance of friends and relatives.
Max, a resident of Pittsburg, Kansas, had worked as a woodworker for about 40 years when he undertook the construction of this unique woodie roadster, and had been making structural wood for '32, '33 and '34 Fords for over a decade, with most of his work going into street rods. He liked the '48 Ford Sportsman convertible, and thought the same idea would be great on a “Deuce” roadster. So, he hired artist Rick Gimlin of Pittsburg to make a picture of what such a car would look like.
With his hopes confirmed by the artwork, Max set about combining his knowledge of the latest in wood technology with his expertise of old-fashioned hand craftsmanship to build what he nicknamed “The Spruce Deuce.”
