Mar 26, 2018 685

A thoroughly restored 1969 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder is for sale on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $199,900. The gorgeous two-seater is offered by the Daniel Schmitt & Company classic car gallery in St. Louis, Missouri. Intermeccanica was founded in Turin, Italy in 1959 by Canadian Frank Reisner.

He hoped to blend reliable American powertrains with Italian coachwork—a formula that worked for BizzarriniDe Tomaso, and other manufacturers of the era. In the Italia's case, a 351-cubic-inch Ford V8 and Hurst 4-speed transmission are integrated seamlessly into a hand-formed steel body. Naught to 60 takes a little over 6 seconds and the car will keep going past 150. Disc brakes at all four corners rein things in.
