1961 Dodge Flite-Wing Concept by Ghia

The Dodge Flite-Wing was a concept car built by Dodge in 1961. The Flite-Wing was unveiled in New York’s Central Park on Dec. 5, 1961. One of Flitewing’s outstanding features was its flip-up windows in place of conventional roll-down glass.


When the door of the Dodge Flite-Wing was opened, a window-roof canopy automatically cantilevered upward, and vice versa. Inside, the speedometer consisted of 13 separate elliptical windows, which replaced the conventional dials setup. Back then, unlike many car manufacturers, most Chrysler dream machines were built by Carrozzeria Ghia with engines and drivetrains-actual runners. The car had a ram-air-inducted 330-hp 383-cu-in wedge V-8.
