Iso Grifo 350 GL 1966

Iso Grifo GL 350 1966 for sale

The Iso Grifo is one of the best GT cars from the 70's you can buy for money -- with the design from Giorgetto Giugiaro Bertone and American power that you can depend on and maintain for fraction of the cost you would spend on any other Italian thoroughbred. There were only 413 Iso Grifos produced and it is today uncertain how many of these are still out there.

Exterior: Painted two years ago in this wonderful petroleum green color. It is a high quality paintwork with great depth and shine. All brightwork and glass in excellent condition. Today riding on Borrani spoke wheels shoed with correct time period Michelin tires. And the original Campagnolo magnesium wheels that the car was equipped with from factory are along with the car if you should prefer these.

Interior: All original interior in fantastic condition! It is only original once! And even if you find the most skilled craftsmen today and have them put together a new interior with the finest materials one can find, it still cannot match the look and feel of something that has been shaped by time and careful maintenance.

Engine: It is not easy to see, but the Chevrolet Corvette engine has been fitted with a very discreet fuel injection system. This gives the already powerful engine even more torque! All original parts are with the car and the fuel injection would be easy to remove if one wanted to. Also fitted is a five speed Tremec gearbox that makes it a bliss to cruise along even on Autobahn.

History: Supplied new on the 2nd of November 1966 to Mr Viktor Ackermans in Belgium. It then changed ownership and came home to Sweden on the 26th of April 2013. Having a 50 year old car with two owners from new is not something we see every day in the collector car business! Mr. Ackerman, the first owner, drove the car in the beginning, but then it was left sitting for almost 30 years, until it found its way to Sweden.

Iso Lele

Iso Lele for sale

It is very rare to see a Lele for sale today and 285 car where produced between 1969-1974. It is a 2+2 coupe cimilar to Lamborghini Espada in size and performance. The Chevrolet gives 300hp and transmission is automatic by Borg Warner.

It is a very usable classic car that is easy to drive and maintain. It is cruising along on the highway in 140km/h comfortable and steady.

The car was recently imported from Germany to Sweden (sold new to Switzerland). Condition is overall good, all functions work. Wheels and tyres are in very good condition. Underneath looks very good and no signs of any rust. Paint is showing wear and has some small bubbles.

The leather on the seats is fantastic and carpets/wood look good to. It does have an electric sunroof and this was a super rare option for these cars. The car appears to be very original.

Iso Grifo GL 350

For sale: Iso Grifo GL 350 1967

If you are interested in buying a car like this, I assume you already know about the Iso brand and their cars. There were only 413 Iso Grifos built and there were 3 engine variations. A 300hp V8, a 350hp and a 390hp. This car is the 350hp with a 5 speed ZF gearbox from factory. It is a matching numbers car.  The paint is old and worn and in the grill area and left wheel arch it is in black primer. It had the front and the rear end recently rebuilt with new bushings shocks, brakes etc. Tyres are new and the exhaust is new. New carpets with ISO logo. Interior is completely original and looks good. All instruments work. The car passed Technical Control in Sweden (MOT, TUF) in May. Owners and maintenace records is well documented.

History: Acording to chassinumber the car was produced 1967 and the first delivery was to Germany. There is a copy of the German fahrzeugbrief and a sales reciept dated 1977 when Ingvar Malmstroem bought the car for the price of 8000DM and took it to Sweden. First registration in Sweden is 1981 acording to Swedish T.S. But the car was used here from 1977 and was owned by a lady in Malmö and then it was passed between 3 car dealers. A total of 6 owners in Sweden including dealers.

The Iso Grifo is for me one of the best classic sportscars in the world. It has styling that stands out and is admired even by crowds clueless about classic sportscars. It has performance and sound to match the looks without being overly complicated and expensive to maintain. It is big enough to bring a small family and a suitcase for those Grand Touring trips. Driving it is addictive, you want to go a little bit more every time, and it is a car that you can drive long and hard knowing that the likelihood of meeting somebody else with the same car is very small.

Please note, this is a limited time offer. Most of these cars are today toprestored and are very expencive. Here is your chance to buy an excellent driver for a very reasonable price. Ten years ago you could buy a Grifo for 35.000$! Look at what these cars cost today! And where will they be in another ten years? Buy one while you can.

Iso winter star

Iso Grifo 1970

We have a very long and dark winter here in Sweden, but now in the beginning of March the days are starting to become longer and brighter. Today was one of those days that you are looking forward to all winter long! That is when roads are dry and free from salt and snow and you can take out that classic car you have in the garage for a little ride. Today was a day I will remember and cherish for a long time. 

The Iso Grifo is a fantastic car! There were 413 cars like this built by Renzo Rivolta. The man who started out by building refrigerators and the more humble Isetta. This particular vehicle is a very original car that has been here in Sweden for a long time.  Iso Grifo used Chevrolet Corvette engines and this one has the 350hp with a 5 speed ZF gearbox.
