1956 Chrysler–Boano Coupe History
Toward the end of 1955 Italian Industrialist Gianni Agnelli known as “L’ Avvocato” commissioned building of the Chrysler-Boano Coupe while he was vice president of Fiat. He tasked Mario Boano, formally of Carrozzeria Ghia with producing a, "2-seat coupe with a powerful, modern mechanical system, a classic British style coupe, not a modern shape."
The Chrysler Boano coupe features a frame shortened by the coach builder from the original 126”to 119” to better complement the two-seater layout. The mechanicals remained the stock Chrysler 300B high performance engine combined with Power Flite push-button automatic transmission.
