One of just a handful of known examples of Ghia’s gorgeous GS-1, presented in excellent condition with a recently freshened and finely detailed restoration. A rare and beautiful coachbuilt American classic, ideal for motoring events worldwide.
Our featured 1954 Chrysler GS-1 is a gorgeous example of this highly collectible Italian-American hybrid. Chassis number 7252367 is one of approximately 15 Chrysler Ghia GS-1s produced in 1954 and is among a mere handful of known survivors. Distinguishing the GS-1 from the 1953 Ghia Special are the later car’s larger bumpers, revised grille treatment, and a pronounced swage line adding definition to the body sides and accentuating the GS-1’s low, long proportions. According to a respected expert on these cars, chassis number 7252367 and its sister car (chassis 368) were completed by Ghia in November 1953 and supplied together to the Chrysler Export Corporation. While there are no official records regarding the first owners, it is assumed Chrysler reserved these two cars for executives. Our featured car is one of only two GS-1s with individual bucket seats in the rear (all others had a bench seat), and along with car 368, it features a unique grille design with no horizontal bars.
