The Ford Microsport was concept car buily in 1978 by Ghia, being geared for fun and fuel efficiency.
The car was based on a 1.0-litre Ford Fiesta, being 10 inches shorter than a Fiesta and featuring lightweight aluminium panels and impact-absorbing plastic materials at the front and rear.
Lightweight glass panels were used for the windscreen, rear screen and side glass. 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.
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 stowage capacity.
