The Iso Grifo may strike a perfect balance for many automotive enthusiasts: Italian, vintage coach-built design and big American power.
This particular 1967 Iso Grifo GL Series embodies both in an exemplary fashion, sporting its original 304 hp, 327 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 engine and unrestored body following its rediscovery after over 20 years in storage.
The original owner purchased the car all original in 1986 and planned to send the Iso Grifo off for restoration. Except, it never happened.
The vehicle was forgotten before it was recognized as something truly special; in its configuration, it is one of 34 right-hand drive Iso Grifo Series I examples ever manufactured .
The 1967 Iso Grifo found a new home quickly when it was put up for auction at the most recent RM Sotheby’s showing where it sold for £128,800, or roughly $170,558 USD. We can’t blame the price tag for this magnificent car.
