1971 Iso Grifo – The Huge Image

I used to be unfamiliar with the Iso Grifo till I got here throughout this magnificence listed for public sale at Sotheby’s through Classic Driver. It’s one in every of simply 83 Iso Grifo Collection IIs produced.

The Grifo was a grand tourer combining the Italian model as accomplished by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Carrozzeria Bertone with dependable American muscle automobile energy through the Chevy Corvette and occasional Ford). Autoveicoli S.p.A. manufactured these between 1965 and 1974 to compete with GTs from Ferrari and Maserati.

Model new, it was twice the price of a Corvette, however was lighter and extra subtle. This 1971 Grifo Collection II has modern styling, hide-away headlights, and is powered by a period-correct, small-block V-8 sadly mated to a three-speed automated transmission. I believe that possibility alternative may maintain the public sale costs down considerably.

These promote for $300-500k, with this example final 12 months going for $390k. A Targa high model — 1 of simply 4 made — can be up for auction and estimated to double that worth.
