I've been able to get respectable heavy tones out of a Fender Deluxe Reverb with a V-Twin for years. Its never going to crush like a big Recto but it sounds better than some high gain lunchbox amps.
Mesa: V-Twin (owned since ~1998), Rectoverb 25 head, TA-15 head, dual Mini Rec cabs
Fender: 1973 silverface Deluxe Reverb, 1980 silverface VibroChamp
Guitars: Gibsons, Charvel and Suhr
Effects: Boss, Wampler, JHS, Fulltone, Empress, Fulltone

The V Twin is deeply underrated; I use it for a country gig in front of a Deluxe Reverb clone. It can do a reasonable high gain tone, but at lower gain settings, it also works very well.

When I saw Foo Fighters in Hyde Park London they were using Lonestars.

Anything is possible with a good fuzz pedal. The Lonestar has enough grind to it for rhythm and then just punch a Tubescreamer or something for the overdrive.
Tone is in the AMP ! !1 !!

… and having a closed back cab will also help to get into the ballpark
