1954 Dodge Firearrow II

Post by koimaster » July 15th 2021, 12:50pm

Shortly after Chevrolet’s Corvette took car enthusiasts by storm, the Chrysler Corp. tapped Virgil Exner for a roadster design that not only drew attention to Dodge but also helped shape the automobiles of the future.

As head of Chrysler’s Advanced Styling Group, Exner had created a tight bond with Italian coachbuilder Ghia. This relationship led to a collaboration on a line of “concept cars” that shaped the way that Dodge designed their lineup. In all, four Firearrow concepts were made, all were slightly different but the common theme was a low-slung chassis with Italian coachwork hand made by Ghia.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
