This Ghia-bodied Chrysler Dart was one of the largest cars in the Turin car show in 1956. It was an example of the Chrysler watchwords of “Forward Look” and “Flight Sweep” carried to a logical extreme. Significant features of the concept car include the development of the windscreen into a roof so as to afford unusual upward vision, and the embodiment of a chromium-plated rubbing strip which helps protect the painted surface of the body in the event of minor accidents.
