Trade-in car. Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica was the name used when car manufacturer Intermeccanica started up their company in 1959. It started in Torino, Italy, subsequently moved to the States, then to Canada. The 60’s are nicknamed the “Swinging 60’s” and Intermeccanica was smack bang in the middle of it! Initially the company only produced tuning kits for Formula Juniors, a popular entry class for aspiring racing drivers. Later they started to build cars. At first the Italia was named the Torino. That, however, did not sit well with Ford who already had a model in their portfolio with the same name. Our Intermeccanica Italia Coupé was built in 1970. The Franco Scaglione drawn Coupé has a Ford 5.7 litre V8 engine coupled to a manual gearbox. The photos we have show that this car is a nice full restoration project. We fairly sure that all components are there. The car really is in need of a full restoration. The bodywork is complete, the body panels require the necessary attention but form a nice starting point. The car obviously need re-spraying. We have a solid and rust-free bottom underneath this Italia Coupé. The interior trim is all there. As far as we are able to tell, all meters work. The Intermeccanica Italia Coupé has stood still for some time, thorough servicing and maintenance are the order of the day to prepare the engine and gearbox for use. With only 500 of these cars ever built, then and even more so now a true rarity. Once restored it is probably one of the best proportioned cars ever! THIS VEHICLE IS IN OUR STORAGE, VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
