This kit has an interesting history. In the early 1960s Monogram invested in a series of huge 1/8 scale models with extraordinary details. The complete line consisted of the Big 'T' Street/Rod, Big Drag Competition Roadster, Big Rod Show/Go Roadster, Big Tub Custom Phaeton and the Big Deuce '32 Ford Roadster. The Deuce Roadster molds cost over $150,000 to produce - an absolute fortune at the time. The design work alone for the molds was $50,000. The total cost of the project was over $1,000,000 - in 1963 money. The result was a nearly flawless large American Automotive model that has never been equaled to this day. The Big Deuce was one of the series by famous customize Darryl Starbird and the first issues were in red or yellow bodies - this is the later black issue.
