The Ghia’s body was pretty strange, too. The car’s floor had a honeycomb-like construction, which helped to increase its strength. Ford used both fiberglass and Kevlar for the construction. More fiberglass was used for the seat frames, which also had some lighter aluminum.
Obviously, the Ghia’s tiny frame and lightweight construction also guaranteed it got motorcycle-like fuel economy. At the time, Ford said it’d hit 70 MPG, but would only manage a top speed of 50 MPH.
If this particular blend of weird, pricey, and rare strike your fancy, the seller says they have a VIN and registration provided by the car’s home state of Connecticut, and that the price is OBO.
