This particular example is fitted with the desirable, yet rarely selected, air conditioning system. It is powered by a Ford 351 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 powerplant mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The engine features custom valve covers, an Edelbrock 650cfm 4V carburetors and Edelbrock Performer intake manifold. There are vintage Magnum 500 wheels on all four corners and the body is finished in Russo paint.
This car is another exciting and excellent example of European style with American power. There were 376 Italia coupes and convertibles built making them a rare treasure.
