Iso Color Samples

by Mike –

Iso offered 24 exterior color choices, maybe more, there are 24 on this sample kit but there could have been others. This is a large selection for a small company and different than the Henry Ford philosophy of “any color you want as long as it is black”.

These pictures show an original Iso color sample kit. I am sure that some, or all, of these same colors were offered by other Italian car manufactures in the 1960s.
