Rick Dore’s Latest, “Illusion”

An entirely hand fabricated car, a figment of your imagination, perhaps.  For most this next ride might fall into the world of fantasy or a conjuring of a gear heads imagination.  But, from the gifted hands and creative mind of Rick Dore, it’s no daydream.  Cast your eyes at Mr. Dore’s latest hand fabricated creation, “Illusion”.  The flawlessly flowing lines and exquisite detail are trademark Rick Dore design.  “Illusion” is proof that building things the old fashioned way can be cutting edge and modern.

Luc Deley of Marcel’s, masterfully hand formed the entire build from raw sheets of aluminum.  “Illusion” sits on a chassis by Art Morrison and Steve Wilks.  Ron Francis wiring keeps everything connected.  Ron Mangus created the interior and Sherms did the chrome plating.  She rolls on Coker tires and Red Lizard did the exquisite trim work.  It has an Ididit ’40 Ford steering column and the fuel tank is by Rick’s Tanks.  PPG provided that immaculate finish and incredibly distinctive color.  Last but not least an LS3 engine gets this “Illusion” down the road with certainty.  Feast your eyes on what could be an “Illusion” but is in fact a handmade rolling wonder.

Here’s just a little more of that Dore eye candy.
