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.
