Well its been a long time coming, but eventually starting to be worth the wait!

Our shell of our Intermeccanica Convertible D just out of paint this morning, and i'm really please with how it looks.

Can't wait to see it start to come together over the coming weeks. 

Will post more pics as we progress.

Cheers

Nick - is that a new build at IM in BC?  Or is it one you are restoring?  If restoring - wonder how many right hand drive ones were produced. What's build plans for the rest of it - Air cooled or other?

Hi Wolfgang,

It has been in production at IM for some time and has basically been constructed as a build kit, then sipped to the UK for Intermeccanica's UK partners to complete the build.

It's been quite a trip really over two years to get to where we are now, so hopefully not too long to wait now.

Forgot to say the car has a 2.5 Litre normally aspirated boxer motor mated to a Subaru Gears 5 speed transaxle. Porsche 911 SC front suspension, steering & brakes, with semi trailing IRS with vented discs.

Should be a nice thing once completed.

Evening gents,

Finally starting to get somewhere with my build. The car is now on its wheels and Moros and gearbox to go in over the next weeks or so.

Cant Wait to get it running

Nice Nick, good to see the progress on your build.   Robert that is IM's design on the back seat.  I believe you can see the IVR I believe it's called requirements for shoulder belt attachment.  Nice work on IM's part for sure and the carrera vents are awesome looking.

Thank you Ray. Hadn't noticed that before on the IM.

The band on the edge makes a nice finished look and a starting point for the top. 

Here a pict of my interior rear seat during my build... Don't want to hijack NIck's posts but you asked

Thanks for the comments gents.

Marty, the wheels are from Coddington’s and I’m really happy with how they look.

The car should sit really well on them once the motor and transmission go in.

ill post more as I get them

cheers

Hi Bob,

Henry did source them for us. I know he had to commit to a number of sets of wheels to get the prices at a reasonable level.

it might be worth a call to see whether he sold them all or not.

Regards

Nick

Marty has a 944 spare tire metal wheel and he had it cloned,  and I think made by the same company as those.   @Bob: IM S6 Bob,  you can get whatever wheel you  want made up in whatever size you want from that company.  All you need is real money, I mean compared to ours.   Not sure what final look that is desired but here you have them in 18inch and wide sporting a C series hub cap. 

I think you can get them chromed, or aluminum polished the list goes on really. 

 

Here is the wheel again

Nick, while you still are not finished with all the bright work on the car are you thinking of having an Xpel film done on your car?  I think you might like to protect that beauty. 

The bottom of the back seat can be made to hold a subwoofer of the right size @Nick Jones if so desired.  I did it after the fact it would be much easier on the build.  Looking very good.

NIck,  your free to do as you will of course, but if I can help you in any way by sharing with you parts of my build process, I would be glad to help you in any way I can. Ray

Well progress has been slow, but we are now starting to get somewhere.

Here's a few pics of where we re up to.
