Of the twelve Series 1 SuperAmericas built, only three were not bodied by Pinin Farina; Boano clothed two examples and Ghia the other. The latter was commissioned by American Robert Wilke. A longtime car enthusiasts, Wilke is best known for sponsoring Indy 500 entrants with his Leader Card Company. The extravagant design was penned by Giovanni Savonuzzi and took nearly a year to complete. It was one of the Ghia show cars that at one point received the nickname 'Gilda' after the film noir classic by the same name in which Rita Hayworth starred.

After taking delivery in 1956, Wilke owned the car for two decades. In that period, he added several other Ferraris to his collection as well. After passing through prominent hands like John Mecom and the Blackhawk Collection, the last Ghia bodied Ferrari was acquired by the current owner in 1991. This noted collector has a particular interest in special coach-built Ferraris and also owns the two Boano Series SuperAmerica. The unique Ghia Coupe is only very rarely seen in public but in 2010 an exception was made for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where Ghia was the featured coach-builder.
