Actually the line is "revved up like a DEUCE
, another runner in the night" The Deuce refers not to a Duesenberg, but to a Deuce Coupe, which is a 32 Ford that was popular with hot rodders in the 50s and 60s. 1932 was the first year for the flathead Ford V8 engine, the first affordable V8. It's the car that the Beach Boys sang about in "Little Deuce Coupe", and it's the yellow hot rod that John Milner drives around in American Graffiti.
Manfred Mann actually changed the original Springsteen lyric which is "Cut loose like a deuce, another runner in the night."
