Pebble Beach Tour 2010: Ghia madness
Three examples of wild design from Carrozzeria Ghia of Turin—all of which show an interesting interplay between American and Italian automotive styling.
From top, the 1954 Plymouth Explorer Ghia Coupe, the 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic Ghia Coupe and the 1954 DeSoto Adventurer II Ghia Coupe. All were designed under the direction of Luigi Segre, who was then in his early 30s and had been hired by Ghia specifically to work on its Chrysler accounts.
