For all intents and purposes the 1961 Ghia bodied started out to be the second generation Dual Ghia that was snapped up by Hollywood celebs such as Sinatra and fellow rat packer’s. After all they loved the original 1957/58 Dual Ghia but it was 1962 and they were ready for something new. The original owner of Dual Motors, Gene Casseroll, who created the dual Ghia was pressed into producing the replacement. He started the project but then backed out leaving Ghia alone with the plans. Ghia sensing the need produced 27 cars over two years. They called it the Ghia L 6.4. The 6.4 was the size of the Chrysler 383 engine that powered the beautiful Ghia.
Our car was The New York Show car for 1962. It was sold to a Mr. Berman of Pennsylvania a devout Ghia enthusiast. Luckily our Ghia went into collectors hand day one. That is the reason that the car remains in excellent original condition to this day having traveled only 29K miles from new. The car is finished in it’s original navy blue with white leather interior with four pieces of fitted luggage behind the front bucket seats. It is equipped with factory air conditioning. We think there are some 17 of these Ghia L 6.4’s left but perhaps none as original.
