B&M Mega Deuce – Scott Hawley’s Bitchin’ Tudor
Scott Hawley is a longtime Goodguys supporter with a great collection of hot rods, including a Brizio-built Deuce coupe that was a 2019 Hot Rod of the Year finalist. When he had the opportunity to buy this bitchin’ Deuce Tudor out of the Roy Brizio collection back in 2012, he jumped at the chance. Can you blame him?
Believe it or not, this bright orange sedan was built by Brizio way back in the mid-’90s! It was a project car for performance aftermarket company B&M. Designed by Thom Taylor and known as the B&M Mega Deuce, it was the subject of a full buildup in Rod & Custom magazine, got plenty of ink back in the day, and is still a bitchin’ beast of a hot rod.
The Brizio-built chassis features a Super Bell dropped front axle and a quick-change rearend supporting wide Halibrand wheels with fat Hoosier rubber. It needs all the traction help it can get thanks to a monster 512c.i. big block built by the legendary Bill Mitchell and fed by an 8-71 B&M Mega Blower. Sanderson Limefire headers bark out the exhaust note.
Bright Hemi Orange paint by Darrell Schneider highlights the chopped Deuce body, while the inside wears black leather over bucket seats, Classic Instruments and a B&M shifter, of course. It’s a tough, timeless package – one that screams “hot rod” no matter what year it is!
