The U.S. Postal Service honors the “Best of America” by introducing limited-edition stamps that celebrate various American passions, including hot rods. The new stamps appeal to automotive buffs of all ages, celebrating the fast, powerful vehicles that thrill-seekers have been modifying for nearly a century.
Each of the two stamps showcase an iconic 1932 Ford “Deuce” roadster, the most popular hot rod model of its time. The stamps will be available for purchase at major Post Office™ locations across the country and online at usps.com/stamps and ebay.
