    Ford of Europe and Ghia of Italy joined forces to create the Barchetta convertible, displayed at Ford's exhibit during the 76th Chicago Auto Show. Riding on a 90-inch wheelbase, the two-passenger, front-drive Barchetta ("little boat" in Italian) measured only 138 inches long overall. It used the same platform as the European Fiesta XR2.
