Iso Grifo For Sale - Ex Mike Hailwood and Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour"

by Mike -

This beautiful 1967 Iso Grifo was bought new by multiple Motorcycle World Champion Mike Hailwood. It is for sale at the Coys Auction, The Spirit of Motoring - Ascot on Saturday 14 May 2011.

The Estimate is £140,000 - £170,000 ($232,000 - $281,000).

The engine is the original Corvette 327 V8 with 350 hp mated to a 5 Speed ZF gearbox. It also comes with the rare factory air conditioning.

This car appeared in the Beatles film A Magical Mystery Tour. The picture below is from the movie.

It is right hand drive.

It seems that the Beatles liked Iso cars, I wrote about John Lennon and the Iso Fidia recently.

Now, this is a very special Grifo.
