You may not remember The Wraith, a 1986 movie starring a then-21-year-old Charlie Sheen as a reincarnated hotrodder challenging a deadly gang in Arizona. However, Mopar fans should remember the car: The Wraith's car was based on the sleek M4S Turbo Interceptor concept car developed by Dodge and PPG for use as a pace car. The rear-wheel drive Turbo Interceptor had a a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine with twin Garrett T25 turbochargers and a Cosworth-tweaked twin-cam 16-valve cylinder head. The car is said to have cost Dodge and PPG a cool $1.5 million.

Six copies of the car were made for the movie and one is currently being restored by Wes Roof and a team that is working with Bob Ackerman, the designer of the M4S.

Wes sent us some information about ordering posters featuring hard-to-find photos of the original car. The original images came from Ackerman's personal collection and they show the car at its best.

Editor’s note: the poster address has changed and we are awaiting an updated graphic.
