L.A. Quintessential: The Cadillac Ghia


This is the 1953 Cadillac Ghia. South-Asian royalty Aly Khan purchased this particular model in an attempt to recapture the attention of his wife actress Rita Hayworth. That may have worked on us, but this ride didn’t have that affect on her. The two split up permanently, but Hayworth did keep the car. The car now belongs to the Petersen Automotive Museum and it’s rumored that it was originally an appliance white. Now Petersen has sprayed the Ghia in a darker, richer color to emphasize its brightwork and elegant form. No matter what color you paint it, this caddy stays true to its Los Angeles roots.
