    This was a 1955 concept car, two seater roadster, bodied in Italy by Ghia to a Chrysler design, I saw an article i n Spanish a few years ago that showed it as found in a rough neighborhood. I was wondering what year it was found and did the barn hunter get it at a good price? I heard American automakers liked to sell concept cars outside of the US so they wouldn't have to pay US customs duties.

    To my knowledge the only surviving Chrysler Falcon is in the USA, it has traded quietly over the years between a few collectors. I believe that the sister car(s) perished in the the sinking of the Andrea Doria.
