Italian Style With Hollywood Pedigree: 1966 Ghia 450SS Could Be Yours!

Illustration for article titled Italian Style With Hollywood Pedigree: 1966 Ghia 450SS Could Be Yours!

If you're looking for a fast Italian machine from the 60s, you've got your Ferraris and Maseratis and such, and even your Intermeccanicas. Don't stop with those cars, though, because Ghia didn't just do coachwork for other manufacturers- they made a few cars themselves! This '66 450SS, once owned by Wilt Chamberlain, has had its original Chrysler 273 V8 replaced with a Chevy 350; that seems sacrilegious (though it was done by Boyd Coddington), but it's still a fast, beautiful car. The auction ends today, and we're curious to see how high the bids will get. [eBay Motors]

There was one at Pebble Beach this year:

It's a very pretty car, and I have no problem with a Boyd Coddington-replaced Chevy mill. Still, 65 Gs will buy a lot of beer and Nazi hookers.

Looks like these influenced Toyota in the design of the 1st-gen Celica nose.
