PHOENIX – Supernatural fans, your chariot awaits. Charlie the Impala is a four-door 1967 Chevrolet Impala, an exact replica of Sam and Dean Winchester’s car in the CW show Supernatural.

The car was created from the ground up by the Andrews family. They love the show so much, that they decided to build the iconic muscle car.

“My whole family loves the show, but my dad and I wanted a father-daughter project, and he builds trucks so we decided to build a car,” said Jamie Andrews, owner of Charlie the Impala.

It took Jamie and her dad three years to build Charlie. They’ve scoured the internet to find exact replicas of crosses, weapons, and even the grenade launcher. Every detail of Sam and Dean’s Baby is perfectly replicated like only a true fan could, even the Army man in the ashtray.

“Finding the props were really hard. Because of the show, everything is more expensive than it is before the show,” said Andrews.

Charlie is only one year old and first debuted at Phoenix Comic Con in 2017.

Within the last year, Charlie the Impala has appeared at Ace Comicon, Supernatural Con and  she’s even met the men who made her famous, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

“They were impressed that it looked so much like the real car,” said Andrews. “Jensen just stood here looking at the inside for like five minutes just looking at everything.”

Charlie just made an appearance in Celebrity Row at Phoenix Comic Fest. There to show support over the weekend was Rick Worthy, who played the Alpha Vampire in Supernatural.
