by Mike –
Here is my pick for the classic cars for sale today that I would like to own – all Iso – a Lele and a Grifo. The Lele was in Monterey in August 2012 where I was able to see it in person and it is beautiful. The Grifo was apparently made for Nuccio Bertone.
1966 Iso Grifo
The seller says,
This 1966 Iso Grifo GL350 is the show car of the Paris Motor Show (Salon de l’Automobile Paris) of 1966. And was, (according to the factory’s birth paper), obtained by Mr. Negri, and other Iso specialists, private property/originally delivered to the designer, Mr. Bertone himself. Finished in color Grigio Astrale (grey/green) with a Pelle Avana (cognac color), full leather, interior.
This Iso Grifo is for sale on Anamera with the price available upon request. It is in The Netherlands.
I love the color combination. If this Grifo was really originally owned by Nuccio Bertone then that is something special. Looking at the build sheet it indicates Bertone as the destination and Paris Salon is also specified. This car certainly has a unique history.
1973 Iso Lele
The seller says,
* Original leather “testa di moro”
* 5-speed-ZF transmission
* Power steering
* Air conditioning
* Full history including “birth certificate”
* 135,000 km
This Iso Lele is for sale on Anamera and is located in Germany. The price is 65,000 Euros – Offers Invited.
I saw this Iso Lele at The Quail, A Motor Sport Gathering (you can see more photos at this link) in August 2012 when it was part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Iso Rivolta GT.
This is one of the best Lele’s that I have seen in person and the color combination is stunning. This would be an excellent car for any Iso lover to own.
