Plymouth Explorer by Ghia

Like a majority of other Chrysler Corporation dream cars of the period, the rakish Plymouth Explorer was built by Carrozzeria Ghia of TUrin, Italy. Its hand formed coachwork was distinguished by carefully sculpted contours and accentuated by horizontal spears on the side that were painted white to contrast with the striking metallic green body color.

Exhaust pipes projected from the tail light pods. Special interior features included leather upholstery, fitted luggage that stored behind the seats and radio controls that were concealed by opening panel on the dashboard. Built on a modified 1954 Plymouth chassis, the Explorer was powered by a stock 230-cubic inch 103 hp 6-cylinder engine.
