Description:

NASCAR legend and ESPN racing analyst Ray Evernham unveiled from the Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes booth at SEMA a street-legal 1964 Plymouth Belvedere that combines old school American style with modern NASCAR racing technology.  Aptly named ‘ForPly,’ the custom car marks Ray Evernham’s debut as a car designer and builder

 

“We set out to design the ultimate street machine that takes a vintage American muscle car with great motorsports heritage and brings it into the modern age,” said Evernham.  “There is not another one like it in the world.  We hope it draws the attention of racing and non-racing enthusiasts, as well as the collector who is looking for that one-of-a-kind vehicle.”

 

Following SEMA, Evernham will present the ForPly for auction as a featured vehicle at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction in January 2013.  Net proceeds from the sale will go to Evernham Family Racing for a Reason, a foundation that is funding IGNITE, a new program and facility in Davidson, N.C. operated by the Autism Society of North Carolina.  IGNITE enables adults with High-Functioning Autism or Asperger Syndrome to enjoy a better quality of life as valued members of the community in which they live and work. 

 

“Enthusiasts are really going to enjoy Evernham’s entry into this side of the automotive business,” said Gary Bennett, VP of Consignment at Barrett-Jackson. “The ForPly is an innovative and beautiful-looking street racer built with great craftsmanship by the very man who revolutionized the crew chief role by leading it – and now also the Plymouth Belvedere – into the modern age of racing.  It should attract lots of interested buyers at Scottsdale.”

 

Housed in the restored body of a near-half-century-old 1964 Plymouth Belvedere – the year, make and model that won the 1964 Daytona 500 and NASCAR Grand National Championship – the ForPly features a Dodge racing powertrain, plus the driveline of a modern day race car that Evernham’s former team Evernham Motorsports built and raced in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The 2-door, hardtop coupe, blazoned with a distinctive Radiant Red automotive matte finish with Graphite racing stripes, features the popular, slant-back roofline and a Graphite Grey-colored custom interior with carbon fiber inlay and bucket race seats. 

 

“Sherwin-Williams is proud to partner with Ray Evernham on his first design venture, and we’re also excited Ray specified the car’s color scheme using Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes,” said Bobby Moody, Director of Motorsports for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “Our new Restoration System inspired by the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction includes primer, color, and optional clear coat kits. These kits provide the tools and products to make each step in the restoration process easy to follow.”
