1972 Intermeccanica Italia
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This Spyder was built towards the end of the Italia production run. It has the largest Ford V8 offered - the 351 Cleveland V8. It is one of just three Italia Spyders known to have been delivered with a factory-supplied hardtop. Modern Weber IDF carburetors and a specially built intake aide in enhanced performance. The interior has Connolly hides and wool carpeting. There is a Tremec five-speed manual transmission and the car rides on Borrani replica wheels constructed specifically for this Spyder with stainless spokes and alloy rims. The Spyder has been fitted with an R134 air conditioning system inside the original A/C plenum.
The car was shown at the 2009 Conocorso Italiano, though it has not been entered in any judged events, though suitable for concours competition.
In 2010, this car was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey presented by RM Auctions. This car was estimated to sell for $90,000 - $100,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $143,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.
