Hardtop Coupe
Designer: Paul Farago
This Dual-Ghia L6.4 is the prototype for the second series of Dual Ghias. Production of the L6.4 was quite limited - only 25 were built.

The first Dual Ghias were built in 1957-58 and quickly became the 'cars of the stars.' Among the owners were Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, Lucille Ball, Hoagy Carmichael and Eddie Fisher. A movie columnist stated that the Rolls-Royce had become 'a status symbol for those who can't get a Dual Ghia.'

When this car was completed (in Italy) Paul Farago, the designer, contacted Sinatra, who had prompted Farago to create a new version, to tell him the new version was low and sleek. Sinatra reminded Fargo that he 'and my friend, Dino, like to wear our hats in the car.' So - the roofline was raised 1½ inches on the rest of the cars.

The Dual Ghia's L6.4's engine is a Chrysler 383 cubic-inch (6.4 liter) V-8 that offers 335 horsepower. Since the car featured a Chrysler drive train it could be serviced at any Chrysler dealer.
