In 1969 Carozzeria Ghia entered into a partnership with Ford and produced many prototypes for the Ford brands. In 1970 Ford bought out Ghia and from 1973 began using the name 'Ghia' on its up market brands, such as the Ford Granada Ghia and the Ford Cortina Ghia. Escort Ghia and even Fiesta Ghia models followed, but from 2010 the name 'Titanium' has taken over on Ford models.
