AUTOMOTIVE FASHIONS: THE DODGE FIREARROW
Italy's Ghia designers worked out this idea-car with Chrysler engineers - the idea being to combine svelte lines form European racers with a smooth-riding Dodge chassis that wouldn't shatter everything in your luggage. The Firearrow is 75 1/2" wide - more than twice its 34" height - and crouches like a springing cat on its 115" wheel base. Salient features: V-shaped rub rail that wraps up the paint job with an effective bumper; recessed double headlights; separate hatches for luggage, spare. Sharply raked windshield, gearshift mounted between two seats, authentic sports-car style.
