1978 Ford Microsport by Ghia

The Ford Microsport was a concept car built in 1978 by Ghia, geared for fun and fuel efficiency. The car was based on a 1.0-liter Ford Fiesta, being 10 inches shorter than a Fiesta and featuring lightweight aluminum panels and impact-absorbing plastic materials at the front and rear.

The car, finished in two-tone white and red, was distinctly wedge-shaped with a severely sloping front grille. Twin air ducts characterized the rear-end treatment. Lightweight glass panels were used for the windscreen, rear screen, and side glass.

Inside, black leather and red cloth were used for the seats, and a unique plastic cover was used to segregate the luggage compartment from the passenger compartment. This movable cover could be folded away for more storage capacity.
