Evel Knievel (Black and Yellow Jumpsuit) 8" Action Figure
Robert Craig Knievel (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007), professionally known as Evel Knievel, was an American stunt performer and entertainer. Over the course of his career, he attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps. Knievel decided upon his nickname after spending the night in a jail cell after illegally attempting a stunt. He was in a cell next to a gentleman called Arthur Knauful [pronounced nor-full] who because of his vicious behaviour had gotten the nickname “Awful Knaufull” which led to Robert coming up with the nickname “Evel Knievel”.
