The Intermeccanica Indra is a real rarity and was the last in a series of sexy sports cars built by the Turin based Carrozzeria "Automobili Intermeccanica". An Italian/American mongrel, the car was styled by Franco Scaglioni, constructed entirely from steel in Italy and sold almost exclusively through Germany's Opel dealer network. This 1973 example is one of the 27 Fastback coupes built and is aesthetically superior to the notch back coupe (40) and convertible (60).
Our example is original with the exception of a colour change from Antilli Green to its current Red, and 15" wheels in place of the factory 14". She is equipped with the larger Chevrolet 327cuin (5.4 litre) V8 engine option and TH400 automatic transmission which provides for both relaxed high speed cruising and substantial acceleration in the tradition of such accomplished GT cars. She possesses extremely sure footed handling complemented by ZF power steering and GM power disk brakes which enable satisfyingly rapid cross country progress. Electric windows, Air Conditioning, Independent Front and DeDion Rear Suspension complete what is a very modern feeling package. This car certainly does have a very "together" feel to it which is borne out by confirmation from Paula Reisner that with this being one of the very last Indra fastbacks produced (#25 of 27), the development of this model was by then very mature.
Never restored, just fettled to maintain its fine form, this car has been spared the "upgrades" that detract from other cars and would be sure to complement any Italian Exotic collection. She was featured in the June 2018 edition of Auto Italia where she received a highly positive write-up and has been shown at a few events in our ownership attracting universal admiration wherever she goes. We have enjoyed using this car for continental touring; on which trips she has proven to be surprisingly practical, reliable and an immense amount of fun. However, we are now at a point in our lives where we would like to get down to only one classic car and are therefore offering this very rare car for sale.
There are a substantial number of additional photographs and some video of our car on the internet as well as a host of other resources to inform interested parties - just search for "Intermeccanica Indra". You will also see that we unsuccessfully auctioned it with Historics in November 2018 where it received a high bid of £68K. Unfortunately, once auction buyer and seller fees were accounted for, a deal could not be concluded. I therefore feel confident that the price offered is realistic. I am available to show the car to serious buyers, but respectfully request that only those with the necessary resources and commitment to follow through to a purchase arrange to view the car in person.
