Why Buy Ours?
Seventeen Reasons to consider purchasing a Dearborn Deuce
As a potential buyer, you probably already realize that all other roadster bodies in our industry, either fiberglass or steel, are sold as “bare bodies”…that is, they do NOT come with all the equipment your body will actually need in order to be a completely outfitted body. This keeps the face value of their purchase price low, and it’s smart (but misleading) marketing. YOU will be responsible for outfitting those other bodies. A Dearborn Deuce Convertible™ body, however, comes fully equipped…and includes the priceless convenience of a hidden convertible top and power windows in a car you can completely close to the weather.
It is dramatically different than anything else in our industry.
If you are only interested in owning a body that is made out of steel, then you’ll be making this comparison to only two or three other steel roadster bodies. No other manufacturer that we know of offers you a fully outfitted body as its basic “standard” body. So you’ll have to factor-in all the other items you’re going to read about below, which we include…and which you are going to need….no matter whose body you buy. Your Dearborn Deuce Convertible™ body has everything already mounted to the body when you receive it; it does not arrive as a body with extra boxes of accessory parts that you have to fit and mount yourself. All the necessary pieces are fitted to the body at the time of assembly.
There is no question that $24,500 is a lot of money for a hot rod body. Simply put, it’s a ground-breaking car and it’s expensive to manufacture. So, in order to justify a purchase like this, you must evaluate what you are receiving at this price level. There are many items to consider in the evaluation process…some of which are not as apparent as others. You must have access to all the information before you can make an informed comparison to “other” hot rod bodies.
Here is a point-by-point item list you should use to compare our body to the others:
