Evernham and his team designed and built a street-legal 1964 Plymouth Belvedere that combines old school American style with modern NASCAR racing technology – his first such project. The car immediately turned heads and has quickly gained accolades from racing and non-racing enthusiasts alike.
Hot Rod magazine has named the ForPly one of its Top 10 cars at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, and on Saturday, he will present the ForPly as one of the legendary auction’s featured vehicles. The caris listed in lot number 1394 and will be offered with no reserve, with bidding to be featured live as part of SPEED Channel’s live coverage.
Net proceeds from the sale will go to Evernham Family Racing for a Reason and 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.
