1968 Iso Grifo

by Mike

The Iso Grifo is one of the most beautiful cars ever designed, it ranks up there with the Bizzarrini GT 5300 Strada. Both cars were styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro (of Bertone at the time). He also styled the Iso Rivolta and many others cars and is probably the most prolific car stylists in history. He formed his own company, Italdesign Giugiaro in the late 1960's and he sold this company to Volkswagen earlier this year.

In the early 1960s Iso produced many great car models they introduced the Rivolta, the Grifo A3/L, which is close to the Grifo shown here in style, and the Grifo A3/C, which eventually became the Bizzarrini GT 5300, all within the span of just a few years. All were powered by Chevrolet Corvette engines and all are fast, fun to drive and reliable.

In this video below my new Iso Grifo arrives, turn up the sound or put on headphones.

  1. Lovely Iso Mike. My Dad is restoring a similar 1967 series 1 but with a two speed powerglide auto box, and it's a rare right hand drive one (ideal for here in the UK). We will be covering the restoration on We would love to feature your cars too. If you're interested get in touch
