1992 ALUMA COUPE
By Boyd Coddington
Created by noted hot rod designer Boyd Coddington, the revolutionary Aluma Coupe was one of the first modern hot rods to combine the look and feel of a 1950s custom with the engineering, comfort and refinement of a modern car. In stark contrast to even the most radical customs, the one-off body was built entirely from scratch as was virtually every chassis and suspension component. Such painstaking fabrication work helped to insure that each part contributed to the integrity of the overall design. In another break with tradition, Coddington fit a stock Mitsubishi engine, greatly enhancing its performance and drivability.
