Description:

Ghia 450 SS Cabriolet

First registration 12.1967

FIVA Identity Card

Only 57 built

Complete restoration in Switzerland

Swiss road registration with veteran entry

 

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and hand-built by Carrozzeria Ghia Turin.
The Ghia 450 SS Cabriolet offered here in its original and classic color combination of silver met. and bordeaux leather interior with the iconic original seats based on the Eames chair is number 45 of only 57 cars built. The “delivery plaque” on the dashboard “Specially built for” is neutral – it probably served as a show car for Ghia of America in LA. The car was imported to Switzerland in 2013 and completely restored over several years with thousands of hours of work to a high standard, professionally and without regard to cost. This beautiful Ghia 450 SS Cabriolet has a FIVA Identity Card, is well maintained and is in perfect collector’s condition with new tires and a fresh veteran’s inspection. It is comprehensively documented from 1982 onwards and the original US title, various magazines, correspondence, original newspaper articles from 1966 and invoices dating back to 1977 are also present, as is the original hardtop in unrestored condition.

The Ghia 230S Coupé (1963) on the cover of Road & Track motivated Hollywood producer Burt Sugarman (BS) to commission Ghia to produce the 450 SS in 1965. By agreement, it was sold through his new subsidiary Ghia of America on Whilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles for the incredible price of 13,000 US dollars. At the time, the price exceeded that of a Ferrari 250.

The Ghia 450 SS (displacement + Super Sport) was originally presented at the 1966 International Motor Show in Turin and was produced by hand in very limited numbers until 1967. Officially, only 52 (but 57 by chassis number) examples were produced and sold exclusively through the importer in Beverly Hills to those who could afford such a car. These included a number of film and music stars. It is estimated that around 35 known cars still exist today.
