Li'l Coffin
Wild Deuce From the 1964 New York World's Fair.

  • Original year: 1964
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Darryl Starbird

The full size Li'l Coffin, called the "Wildest deuce ever shown in international champion auto shows" is one of the best known show cars of the day. This most unusually designed car, based on the 1932 Ford sedan, is especially noted for its cantilever top which is supported at the rear only. Powered by a 329 cubic inch De Soto engine with six carburetors. The low rakish look comes from a top chopped 3 inches and the sectioned body, channeled a full 10 inches.

Dave's comments:

One of the coolest rods of all time! And it's special to me because it's the one my good buddy Scott Doyle bought me in 1995 that got me back into modeling. This 1966 reissue has the best box art of any show rod on this site. See Monogram's original kit from 1964 and the 1995 50th anniversary reissue. This link will take you to the amazing story of this ultra-special rod.
