1962 Ghia L6.4

Only 26 of these L6.4 vehicles were built. The vehicles featured Chrysler components, manufactured by the Michigan based company named Dual and bodywork by the Ghia Company. Ghia, based in Turin Italy, specialized in the art of coach building. To save on cost, the vehicles were totally assembled in Italy. Only 26 examples were produced. Out of the 26 examples, one was a prototype that featured a 'Dual Ghia' emblem on the nose. The remainder of the vehicles had a 'L6.4' emblem with the American and Italian flag. The prototype had a roofline that was lower, by about an inch, than the remainder of the vehicles.
