Right after we posted on the Kirkham-built Ford '40 concept that was shown at SEMA, Rick from West Coast Motor Cars had a message in our inbox stating that he had a non-ferrous project of his own in the works and would be sending over pictures. We've finally received those pictures, and I'm not sure that I can find the right words to describe how gorgeous I think this car looks, so I'll just stick to the technical details.

Obviously, the body is aluminum (with all-glass windows), with lots more al-yoo-mineum goodness underneath in the form of an all-billet double-wishbone suspension in the front and rear. Everything is connected with a stainless-steel ladder-type frame. The car will be sold as a "roller" without a powertrain, but the example you see in the pictures will be motivated using a supercharged all-aluminum 392 Hemi. Massive bonus points should be awarded to the first builder to use a blown Olds motor (in homage to the Stone, Wood, and Cook gasser of the early '60s, of course). It's expected to go on sale in the spring of 2006; until then, you'll have to be content with the pictures that appear after the jump.
