$885,000

Automobile - - Classic -

Based on a short­ened Chrysler New Yorker plat­form, this con­cept was a joint de­sign project be­tween Vir­gil Exner, Chrysler’s noted chief of de­sign at the time, and Ital­ian coach­builder Ghia’s star de­signer Mario Boano. The car would not only in­tro­duce sev­eral de­sign cues found on later Chryslers, but the over­all sim­i­lar­ity to the new­for-1955 Volk­swa­gen Kar­man­nGhia (also a Boano de­sign) is also im­pos­si­ble to miss. Ex­pen­sive and worth it—es­pe­cially given its im­por­tance as a one-off show car.
