For Sale at Auction: 1967 Iso Grifo GL in Amelia Island, Florida

Vehicle Description

Chassis No. GL 650098

What happens when you combine Italian styling, an American powertrain, and a disgruntled Ferrari engineer? You get an Iso Grifo. As a road going version based upon the racing cars of Giotto Bizzarrini, the Iso Grifo GL featured a muscular exterior sculpted by renowned designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and executed by coachbuilders Bertone. Widely regarded as the "father" of the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO, Bizzarrini later decided to part ways with Ferrari and join the field as their competitor and similar to his former employer, soon realized the need to also produce a road car to help mitigate the costs of racing. Known for their performance and dependability, an American V8 was chosen for the advanced chassis which had four-wheel disc brakes, a De Dion rear axle with inboard brakes, and coil spring suspension. With a comfortable interior offering excellent visibility, the Iso Grifo was - and still is - ideally suited as a grand tourer.

Marque specialist Salvatore Diomante was entrusted to restore this Iso Grifo and his superb attention to detail netted a Best in Class award at the 2017 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Finished in a Rosso Cordoba Metallizzato exterior over a tan leather interior, this vehicle's odometer shows 4,311 kilometers at the time of cataloging. Power comes from a more modern GM 355 V8 engine, however, if the winning bidder wishes to return this Iso Grifo closer to original specification, the sale includes a fully rebuilt, period-correct 5.4-liter V8 as well. Equipped with the optional ZF five-speed manual transmission, this Italian muscle car is offered with a toolkit and photography from some of the previous outings.

With only 330 of these limited production Iso Grifo produced between 1965 and 1969 this Series I represents a rare opportunity to acquire not only a fantastic 1960s Grand Tourer with impressive performance and gorgeous Italian styling, but one with the award-winning pedigree as well.
