Dean Martin’s Custom 1962 Ghia L6.4 Going for $200,000

Classic Cars

The King of Cool’s ultra-rare custom-built Ghia is currently available on eBay.

The term superstar is often overused but when it comes to Dean Martin there's no word more appropriate. One of the coolest cats in showbiz he will be remembered for his partying lifestyle and gorgeous collection of cars such as this ultra-rare 1962 Ghia L6.4. Built in Italy by Carrozzeria Ghia, Martin's L6.4 is one of only 26 models ever made, each of which was individually specified and built for other big names like Frank Sinatra, Richard Nixon and Ronald Regan.

While the Gipper later lost his car in a game of high-stakes poker with then-president Lyndon Johnson, Dean Martin deemed the Ghia L6.4 sports coupe insufficiently exclusive. He thus employed the services of Hollywood's King of the Kustomizers George Barris, the man that created the original 1966 Batmobile. The customizations on the car include a plaque on the center console with the words 'designed exclusively for Dean Martin,' original sixties' Barris Kustoms decals at the corners of the windshield, and oval headlights.
