It has never been offered to for sale with intent to defraud, but we keep getting reports that someone promotes it as the real American Graffiti '55 Chevy whenever possible. The Two-Lane Blacktop Online Museum Archives contain video footage of Figari claiming it was used in both movies, as well as a car magazine from Sweden with the same claim.
Above is a poster made of the car before Figari purchased it. The stock front suspension is not visible here.
Above is a photo of the car after it was redone by Richard Ruth. Notice part of the four-link for the straight axle is visible
Richard Ruth's work is evident here.
