'American Graffiti' - 1932 Ford Model B Deuce Coupe

Four years before George Lucas made "Star Wars," his low-budget "American Graffiti" depicted the cars and cruising culture of California teenagers. The 1973 film features such classic cars as a 1956 Ford Thunderbird and a 1958 Chevy Impala, but the most memorable is a yellow 1932 Ford Model B Deuce Coupe.

According to the fan site AmericanGraffiti.net, the filmmakers originally tried to sell the car after production wrapped but couldn't find a buyer willing to pay the asking price of $1,500. Today it's owned by car collector Rick Figari, a San Francisco resident.
