Maserati by Ghia

Carrozzeria Ghia started making lightweight aluminum bodies for Italian brands, such as the Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 and the Fiat 508 Balilla in various versions in limited numbers, including some that excelled in competitions such as the Mille Miglia. In 1943, during World War II, the factory was destroyed, and Giacinto Ghia directed the rebuilding of a new factory on Via Tommaso Grossi until his death on February 21, 1944. The company was sold to Felice Mario Boano and Giorgio Alberti, who made agreements with other Italian and foreign brands to supply chassis on which to make exclusive Special cars or in small series. Ghia was also responsible for the bodywork of various Ferrari chassis from 1950 to 1956, but the most prolific collaboration was with the American giants Ford and Chrysler from the 1950s onward, which led to the presentation of many prototypes and special versions of production models.
