The late 1940s saw Ghia successfully launch and sell the Gioiello series of cars, sporty saloons based on Fiat 1100, Lancia Aprilia and other, whilst probably more significantly also saw the start of a relationship with Chrysler. This latter blossomed and went on to occupy a significant amount of Ghia’s time. This period also saw Ghia set up a joint venture company, Ghia-Aigle, in the Swiss town of Aigle, with a Swiss industrialist as a partner. Ghia only remained involved for around a year before withdrawing, although the company continued alone.
