Coupe
Coachwork: Ghia
During the mid-1950s it was still possible to order a chassis from an automobile manufacturer and have it sent to a coachbuilder for a custom body to be built and fitted. This is such a car.

The world's wealthiest man at the time, Prince Aly Khan, gave this Cadillac with Ghia coachwork as a gift to actress Rita Hayworth, to whom he was married briefly.

The car was one of two built by Ghia and nicely combines the exotic looks of an Italian-bodied custom automobile with powerful and reliable Cadillac running gear.

Other coachbuilders that created special bodies for Cadillac during the 1940s and 1950s included Pinin Farina of Italy, Saoutchik of Paris, and Coachcraft of Hollywood.
