This first-generation Dual-Ghia was originally purchased by a collector and spent part of its life in a temperate Floridian climate. Prior to being sold to its current owner, the car was treated to a nut-and-bolt restoration that was carried out to a very high standard. It has mohair soft top, chrome plating, whitewall tires, and wheel covers.
Between 1957 and 1958, there were just 117 examples of this ultra-exclusive convertible produced. It is believed that only 78 of these examples still exist.
Under the bonnet is a 383 cubic-inch overhead valve Chrysler Wedge V8 engine fitted with a single Carter 4-barrel carburetor. There is a two-speed PowerFlite automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
In 2010, this Dual-Ghia was brought to Gooding & Company's Scottsdale Auction where it was estimated to sell for $300,000 - $400,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot failed to sell after receiving a high bid of $200,000.Also photographed at :
