This statement about a two-door sedan suddenly becoming a four-door sedan is false. Take time to freeze-frame the DVD. At no time does a two-door sedan ever become a four-door sedan. Three two-door sedans were used for filming the Paradise Road scene. What we have here is an Urban Legend that surfaced and refuses to die. I have researched, compiled and written over 300,000 words about American Graffiti trivia. I began my research in 1985. I know American Graffiti trivia!

There is NO slip up. The car that explodes in the end is a 2 door car. They might have changed the car so they wouldn't have to blow up the nice one..but it is still a 2 door car. I have seen the move 10000000000 times and it is a 2 door car throughout the whole movie.

actually it WAS a 2 door... there was 2 55's used in the movie both were 2 door "post" cars (these cars were 2 of the 3 that were used in two lane blacktop)... when you see the 55 burning it IS a 2 door but is a "no-post" car that had a piece of wood attached to it to make it look like a "post" car

Your wrong Mr so called expert! When the Chevy is on its roof burning you can clearly see it is now a 4-door! Go watch the movie now and you will see!
