1973 Iso Grifo GL Series II Coupe
Renzo Rivolta got his start making Isothermos refrigerators before the start of WWII. After hostilities had ended, Rivolta saw an opportunity making cars, and founded the Iso Rivolta company, employing design legends Giotto Bizzarrini and Giorgetto Giugiaro. Iso built the famous Isetta "bubble car" that would go on to be made by BMW, giving Rivolta an influx of capital to build a grand tourer. This resulted in the Iso Rivolta and a year later the Iso Grifo, a beautiful two-seat GT with an American powertrain from the Corvette. The Iso Grifo Series II car pictured here was built in 1973 and left the factory with a Ford Cleveland 351 V8 and automatic transmission. The exterior is finished in white over a rust leather interior and remains in nearly-original condition as an excellent example of Italian style and American power.
