Out in 50 years: 1966 Intermeccanica Italia Coupé

We do not know whether to call this Intermeccanica “Torino” or “Italia”: the first name was in fact contested by Ford as it was its registered trademark.

In any case, whether this car has the first or the second name, it seems that this particular car has a peculiar history: the seller says in fact that this was the car shown by Intermeccanica at the 1967 expo held in Montreal, and which has a 289 Hi-Po engine taken from a Mustang Shelby GT-350.

But this is not the only curiosity: it seems that the car has belonged to the same owner for 50 years and jealously guarded in a Montreal garage; it can therefore be defined to all intents and purposes as a Barn Find. The car appears to be in excellent condition: the paint is a bit dull but otherwise all components appear to be in place and in good condition. Find it for sale at €170,000 (today $189,000) here in Ligueil, France (although the car itself should still be in Canada).

One thought on “Out in 50 years: 1966 Intermeccanica Italia Coupé

  1. Italia should be the correct name: in effects the car should have been named Torino, but Ford had registered yet the name for its production oriented to North American market, Intermeccanica same target, hence the change of the name. By the way, Franco Scaglione (1967 Alfa Romeo 33) gave his contribution in the car design.
