"Convertible Concept Car"
The Dodge Firearrow II was a one-off concept / dream car designed in the early 1950's by Chrysler Corporations legendary design chief, Virgil Exner and hand built by Ghia Coachbuilders of Turin Italy.
Firearrow II was built on a stock 119-inch chassis with a Red Ram Hemi (241 cubic inch engine) with 150 Hp at 4400 rpm. This power plant was mated to Dodge's Gyro-Torque four speed semi-automatic transmission.
This car is a running, fully driving road going car based on the mock up of the first concept car (Firearrow I). As there were only four cars made; the first being the model, the second (this car) an operational car; the third car was a coupe and the fourth was the production ready car.
It was shown at many of the major U.S. auto shows in 1954.
