Ray Evernham to Unveil Restored 1958 Impala from ‘American Graffiti’

Oct 25, 2016

The 1958 Chevy Impala owned by Ron Howard’s character, Steve, in George Lucas’ 1973 film American Graffiti, is set to make a splashy appearance at the Nov. 1-4 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The car was completely disassembled, repaired and reassembled to its original condition from 42 years ago by none other than Ray Evernham.

Evernham, a TV host and NASCAR champion crew chief, will unveil the car at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the outdoor Axalta booth (No. 61009). Evernham purchased the car in 2015 and has spent the last year returning the car to its movie condition. Original cast member Candy Clark will participate in the event.
