The Dodge Firearrow IV: the dreamcar designed by Virgil Exner.

Vehicle Overview

The Dodge Firearrow IV: The Dodge Firearrows were a grouping of four one-off concept/dream cars designed by Chrysler’s legendary design chief Virgil Exner and built by Ghia of Turin, Italy. The series consisted of a full scale mockup (Firearrow I), Firearrow II a running, driving car based on that mockup. Firearrow III a sport coupe, a further evolution of the earlier Firearrows and finally this car: the Firearrow IV, a fully roadable convertible with folding top, windows and fully designed and engineered to be translated into series production. The Dodge Firearrow IV built by Ghia in Italy, is a fully roadable convertible with folding top, windows and fully designed and engineered to be translated into series production. Unfortunately, Chrysler made the decision to not proceed into production and these cars are but a great moment in automotive history. These cars are the only survivors of the wonderful early series of Chrysler concept cars that were designed as serious, elegant Italian styled sports cars which could very easily have found a market niche to compete with the Corvette, Thunderbird and several European marquees. They not only are wonderful looking cars, but are powered by the legendary Hemi engine and a pleasure to drive. The Dodge Firearrow IV 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 the only fully road going convertible with folding top, windows and fully designed and engineered to be put into production. It was shown at many of the major U.S. auto shows in 1954.
