At left is perhaps one of the snazziest numbers that would have been seen at the market, a Dual-Ghia from 1956. Dual-Ghias were extremely expensive sport/luxury cars that were hand-made using Chrysler components and based upon a Chrysler show car from the fifties. Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball had one. They were so exclusive that the owner of the company would refuse to sell to someone he thought might lower the tone of the brand by being seen on one. Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin apparently didn't make the cut.
The images below are of a 1957 Ford Skyliner retractable hardtop, and group of Pontiac GTOs and a 1955 Cadillac convertible, which really needs to come live with me. Photos are mine.
