A Day With Iso Fans At The Iso Factory

by Mike –

Yesterday we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Iso Grifo and the 60th anniversary of the Iso Isetta in the factory where they were produced in Bresso, Italy.

Ádám Bölcs, the owner of these two beautiful Isos, wanted to reproduce the image from page 238 of “Iso Rivolta – The Men and the Machines” by Winston Goodfellow. Some of us helped set up this shot in a steady rain.

We had a cake and we ate it.

  1. ~ remarkable images, Mike. thanks for these reports.

  2. What a great time you’ve all been having! I’m very envious, but work (a schedule someone else devises) prevented my going too. Shame about the rain.

  5. Hey, great pictures! Ive been really intrigued by the little Isetta. My research took me here to find one for the very original ones! I would love to be able to go see that Isetta that took part in the legendary Mille Miglia. Could you give me some details about the factory and maybe some contact details of some people that are still very involved in this scene? Would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards Silas
