1955 Dodge Firebomb -- March 18, 2014

We visited the Blackhawk Museum in June to drool over their collection of classic autos.  The 1955 Dodge Firebomb is a concept car designed by Virgil Exner, with a body built by Ghia.  Chrysler Corporation was not interested in manufacturing the car, so they sold the rights to  Eugene Casaroll, whose Dual Motors Corporation built the Dual-Ghia with a Dodge Hemi engine.  Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and other celebrities bought Dual-Ghias.
