1969 Iso Grifo 7 Litri

This 1969 Iso Grifo Series 1 7 Litri is a sensational example of Iso’s highly acclaimed grand touring car. Powered by the L36 427 Corvette engine, it was one of the world’s fastest production cars in the late 1960s.


Following WW2, the Italian refrigeration company Isothermos was re-established by Renvo Rivolta as Iso Autoveicoli S.p.A., a motor vehicle company. IN the 1950s, the company was best known for its small motor scooters and the Isetta microcar, which was eventually licensed to BMW. In the early 1960s, Rivolta set out to build a grand touring car. The Iso Rivolta was introduced in 1962 to critical acclaim. Building on the success of the Rivolta, Iso embarked upon the development of a second grand touring coupe, the Grifo.


The Grifo was engineered by former Ferrari mastermind Giotto Bizzarrini and was based on a shortened Rivolta chassis. Bizzarrini incorporated Corvette endinge and other mechanical components to ensure brilliant power, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone was entrusted to style the Grifo’s graceful fastback coachwork.


The Iso Grifo was introduced at the Torino Auto Show in 1963, fitted with Corvette’s 327 V-8 and a BorgWarner four-speed gearbox. Later versions of the Grifo were enhanced with Corvette’s 427 V-8, producing 400 bhp and 460 lbs./ft of torque. This example is one of the rarest and most desirable specifications produced, having won First in Class at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance after a substantive restoration.
