North American consumers instantly fell in love with this sexy 2-seater sports coupe with its long curved nose and swept back cabin. Its steel bodywork is hand-formed, and the car is bookended by wedge-shaped chrome bumpers. The round Lucas PL headlamps are recessed and framed by bright orange teardrop shaped reflectors. Solely a driver's side mirror is present and is mounted on the door. Lucas Quartz Halogen lamps also frame the grille, which has a prancing bull badge at its centre. The car's bodywork is uninterrupted by a fuel door, which is located at the rear of the car beneath the trunk lid instead. The car’s tail lights are set within a concave rear end painted black, and its angled quad exhaust outlets are fitted with chrome tips. This Intermeccanica rides on 14” prancing bull badged wheels wrapped in P205/70R14 BFGoodrich Touring T/A tires, with disc brakes all around.
The 1967 Intermeccanica body was fabricated in Italy before being shipped to North America and finished at the Homan-Moody factory in Charlotte, North Carolina where the Shelby powertrain was fitted. The ventilation controls elegantly bear the evidence of these Italian origins, labelled aperto (open) and chiuso (closed). These, along with temperature controls are mounted beneath the dash which is fully wrapped in leather with brown stitching. The rear view mirror is mounted on the dash. A Hurst floor-mounted shifter and a parking brake divide two sport bucket seats also upholstered in black leather. A wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel fronts a Jaeger instrument panel with a 9K rpm tachometer to the left and a 180 km/hr speedometer to the right, with a five-digit odometer. The surrounding auxiliary gauges measuring fuel level, temperature, pressure, and voltage are also labelled in Italian.
This Intermeccanica is powered by a 289 ci Hi-Po V8 engine that is the same as the engine found in a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 of the same era. Square steel tubes were used to form the cars independent chassis, which is welded directly to the body. Its front suspension utilises unequal wishbones, and a Mustang live axle is mounted in the rear with coil springs and radius rods.
