Ever seen a 1982 Mustang convertible? Ford contracted Intermeccanica Custom Coach Builders to convert some 1200 Mustangs into convertibles in 1982. The conversion added a whopping $14,000 on to the price of the car. Jason, the owner, tells us more, "I purchased it on December 1, 2009. It is an early-production Intermeccanica 'Cabrio', with a production unit sequence in the 8,000 block. The data sticker shows a body type of 66H. It was built in August of 1981 and sold new in November, 1981 by City Ford in Los Angeles. It has power windows, steering, brakes, and A/C. The interior is factory red with white leather upholstery. The engine has been freshly overhauled and runs like a Swiss watch. Original Bright Red (27) paint is super-nice, suggesting it spent its life indoors. The colors, options, overall well-kept condition and early production indicate the car was probably purchased by someone with power and prestige, perhaps within the auto industry. The seller owned the car only two years and had no information on prior ownership history. The recent owner had two reasons for selling the car. First, it needs the original top replaced and Intermeccanica was of no help to him in finding the original pattern. Second, he didn't have funds to replace the automatic transmission. Anyone with info on Intermeccanica Mustangs is invited to contact me."
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Here is a close-up of the Intermeccanica emblem on the nose of this Mustang.
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) The trunk lid is modified from a Mercedes-Benz 450SL.
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Here is a close-up of the Cabrio lettering on the trunk lid.
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Check out this top. A Mercedes-style fiberglass boot cover is used. The mechanism works like a Mercedes 220. The top is only 4.5 inches tall when folded. Now... You cannot just cut the top off a Mustang coupe and expect it not to fold in half. Interneccanica used steel square tubing to reinforce the frame.
Has viewer comments (from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) The interior is red with white leather seats.

(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Here is an ad for the 1982 Mustang convertible from Intermeccanica Custom Coach Builders. Ford didn't make a convertible Mustang in 1982. But they did contract Intermeccanica to build a few. The ad says, "Open car driving fun with an accent of style."
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Here is another page from that Intermeccanica ad. It shows how the convertible top works. It states that the word "Cabrio" is a coupe with a folding top. This ad states that the frame reinforcement is done with 3-inch square tubing.
(from page 2 of the 1982 Collection) Here is another advertisement for the 1982 Mustang Intermeccanica Cabrio convertible. This one talks about 2 inch square tubing.
