Evernham ‘64 Plymouth Belvedere and ’67 Chevy ‘Innovator’ Among Featured Vehicles at RKM Collector Car Auction in Charlotte Taking Place Oct 31 – Nov 3
1964 Plymouth Belvedere built by legendary NASCAR crew chief Ray Evernham and 1967 Chevy Innovator set to flex high-profile American muscle
Charlotte, N.C. – September 12, 2013 — A ferocious 1964 Plymouth Belvedere redesigned by champion NASCAR Crew Chief Ray Evernham and an extensively customized, award-wining 1967 Chevrolet Nova will be among the hundreds of investment-grade muscle cars, iconic race cars and rare European collector cars crossing the auction block October 31 – November 3, as RKM Auctions (RKMCCA) presents the RKM Collector Car Auction at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Evernham, who teamed with Jeff Gordon to win 47 Winston Cup races and three Cup championships, infused his “ForPly” Belvedere with a true rush of NASCAR adrenaline. Under the hood, a Kasey Kahne-driven Evernham Motorsports Dodge R5-P7 race engine has been re-formulated as a fuel-injected 358 cubic-inch V8 that puts 750 hp to the rear wheels. ForPly’s racing theme continues with a functional NASCAR air box, radiator, and a NASCAR 4-speed transmission that feeds the power to a 9-inch rear-end with a 3.60 gear. Combine all of this and the Plymouth is easily capable of 200mph.
Underneath the ForPly’s exterior is just as much collector appeal: the chassis is an authentic NASCAR Sprint Cup COT chassis that raced in the Daytona 500. From custom style rims, to the NASCAR-style carbon fiber front splitter, everything about this vehicle showcases its powerful DNA.
The buyer will not only have a one-of-a-kind race car with true NASCAR dynasty provenance, but proceeds of the sale will benefit the Evernham Family Racing for a Reason Foundation. The non-profit organization funds IGNITE, a program that supports adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger syndrome.
