It says it ran four 2-barrells on a 331
Jim Jard in Houston had the Kennedy Brothers build the tribute. If I recall the conversation with Jim correctly, he tried to track down the original. As all of Jim's cars and everything out of the Kennedy Brothers shop, it kicks butt. I thought it was strange that Monogram did it as a roadster?
Intersting ! notice howe the added more flames in '58 compared to '57 !
that car is awesome, i like the 58 version with the flames off the firewall more
Some pics of a completed model. I have to say, it was pretty neat finding out that this was patterened after a genuine article hot rod. I bought it years ago already built for a dollar.
Hey Goldy , I like your philosophy " I go by the results, the rest is bullshit !
Ran across another "little pages" R&C Feb 1960 mag with an article on it. Apparently Fred was still running it then...
Were you around when Jack Kulp had the ex Tommy Ivo aa/fd car ???.. The last car that George Van drove for him sometime around 1970...
Looking to get in contact with Ned Ott and Joe Nocentino Jr...
My name is Bob Swan. My grandfather was Frank Bash good friend w/ Freddy Allen who might be connected to the DEUCE. Ive been going through lots of old photo and found a few that might interest you. Do you guys recognize this drag car? Thanks
"the outlaw" joe nocentino's rail that was a fred allen creation out of phill. FYI the remnents of this rail have been given to joe nocentino's son in hopes that it be re-created. a good friend had the rear alum swoop body, the front axel & a few other odds & ends off of the original rail.
hopefully we will se it recreated to it's original glory.
Revell-Monogram did up a model kit of that 5W Deuce.... The only things missing from the kit are the Moon discs... I'll post pictures of it in a bit.... Along with the decal sheet..
Here ya go!......... Sorry for the shitty cell phone pics..
You can still buy the model kit at your local hobby shop or on ebay...
Thanks for the cover shot!!! This one's going in my Deuce pic folder...
I'm going to try doing a search on this deuce and see what I can come up with... Hope to get more pictures....
Got a better photo from the Revell model car site...
Found some great color footage of the devil deuce at the 1:17 mark taken at york US30 dragway.

What a cool hot rod!
Such a great story and history.
I know this is an old thread but came across this photo.
This picture is from the Nationals in 1957 at Oklahoma City.
This old thread revived !! - - - you gotta love the Jalopy Journal !!
The Satan being a Philadelphia Area car, check out a newer thread, "Old Time Philadelphia Area Hot Rods and Drags" Besides the "Satan's Deuce" there are a lot of pictures of other cars from that era and the Philadelphia Modifiers too.
cool ride,I really liked the video
Still my most favorite old 5w ever. Damn that thing looked good running down the track.
Yes that video is awesome !!!! Although I was friends with some the Satans guys, I was too young at the time to be able to travel to where they raced. I was 14 in 1958, so I never actually got to see the car run down the track. I only got to the drags at Hatfield and Langhorne in Pa. in those days I would hitchike to the drags. I did see the Satans car at Hatfield Drags once in 1958 or 1959, they did not race it, for what ever reason.
That car was hauling ass in that video and sounded awesome !
Does anyone know what elapsed times and miles per hour that the Satans ran with their Deuce Coupe in the 1/4 mile ??
The picture of the Satan coupe was one of the many I took at the 1957 Oklahoma NHRA Nationals.
bobyhist, which picture is yours?? Did you see the Satans Deuce run at Oklahoma City in 1957 ? Do you remember what times it ran ? I am curious about the performance. I remember that everyone talked about how it was a stand out performer!!
