Doane Spencer Roadster
The Rodder's Ideal
This roadster was originally modified by Doane Spencer, a frequent contributor to Rod and Custom magazine. Special features include the first Duval windshield ever fitted to a Deuce, a center armrest that contained the radio controls, and Lincoln brakes modified by Spencer to include cooling scoops. Since the car was to be campaigned in the grueling Carrera Panamericana race in Mexico, an extra cross-member was added to the chassis for rigidity and exhaust pipes were channeled through the side frame rails to improve ground clearance. Upon acquiring the roadster, second owner Lynn Wineland continued to modify it in the Doane Spencer style before passing it on to Neal East who later sold it to the current owner.
