Knowledgeable sports car enthusiasts are quick to perk up when they hear the name Intermeccanica, and with good reason. Intermeccanica was established in 1959 by chemical engineer Frank Reisner and his wife, Paula, and their cars combined Italian artistry with an American powertrain. The Reisners were zealous car buffs who loved sports cars and racing. They traveled to Europe and settled in Torino, Italy, where they opened their company and began manufacturing aftermarket speed kits. Their dream was to build beautiful performance cars. In 1967, after a series of name, ownership, and engineering changes within the company, the Reisners began production of the stunning Italia Spyder.

The first Italias were exported to the United States in 1968. The cars were unlike anything else on the market and quickly gained the attention of discerning American car lovers. However, with limited production and a dear price tag of $8,500, only the affluent could afford them. To many aficionados, the 1968 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder was an automotive masterpiece. The car’s “prancing bull” badging was a gracious nod to Torino's coat of arms. Its styling, which was classic Italian with vintage Ferrari undertones, was elegant. Its performance was equally impressive, as it could reach 0–60 in 6.2 seconds and had a top speed of 155 mph, which was attained through a powerful and proven Ford V-8 engine. The Italia’s steel body was hand-formed, and its chassis was made from tubular steel. With fewer than 400 of these models being built during its production run from 1967 to 1973, the Italia has since taken on an appealing mystique as a rare automobile.

The 1971 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder featured here is finished in stunning Diamond White with a gorgeous Black leather interior. This Italia has been beautifully maintained and comes with rare factory air conditioning, power windows, a full set of Jaeger instrumentation, and more. Power comes from the correct 351 Cleveland Cubic Inch V8 engine which pushes out 310 horsepower. A restoration was performed in 2015 which included new chrome, paint work and a mechanical refreshment, with receipts totaling over $15,000. It drives and performs like new and is truly one of the nicest Spyders available on the market today. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy?
