During the 1950s, Italian coachbuilder Ghia built numerous one-off dream cars for Chrysler Corporation. One, the slab-sided and extremely modern Thomas Special, named for Chrysler export executive C.B. Thomas, was so well-received at European shows that a limited run of duplicates were produced for European customers. It is believed that about 40 so-called Ghia Specials were produced on Chrysler chassis through the mid-1950s, to several variations of the original design..
