Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1968 Iso Rivolta GT

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. While there were 799 Iso Rivolta GTs made, they are still rare and really good ones are very rare.

An Iso Rivolta GT just sold on My Car Quest from New Jersey to California. The condition was not as nice as the description of this car but the price was much less than the asking price for this car.

The price certainly is on the high side but if the description is correct a lot of money has been spent on this car. I know, because I spent a lot of money doing a mechanical restoration of my former Iso Rivolta GT.

I would prefer either the correct grille ornament, which is the horse shoe, or no ornament on the grille at all.

The seller has placed the Griffon sculpture from the Iso Grifo on the grille. This Griffon sculpture was used on the Iso Rivolta GT Le Mans race car but I am not aware that it was used on a production Iso Rivolta GT. It does appear on the Fidia and the Lele but in a different shape and size.

If the new owner wanted to change this grille ornament it would be easy if the horse shoe sculpture can be found.

    I’ve seen the Griffon on several late Rivoltas – enough to make me suspect that the factory did sometimes fit it to these very late cars..
