This 1968 Iso Grifo is for sale. With styling by Giorgetto Giugiaro, chassis design by Giotto Bizzarrini and power by Chevrolet the Iso Grifo has become one of the most desirable collector cars in the world. There were only 413 made and some of those no longer exist making the Grifo a rare classic GT car. They always attract a crowd and they drive like a dream.
This is a series 1 Grifo that I have owned since July 2010. This Iso Grifo has been in California virtually all of its life and the condition reflects that.

Chassis number: GL 740157
Engine: Chevrolet 383 cid – stroker (not the original engine) – Edelbrock aluminum heads

Factory air conditioning – a rare feature
Odometer: less than 78,300 miles
Build date: August 3, 1967 – shipped to the USA
Number made: Approximately 413 of all types

A high quality Iso Grifo for sale is rare.
Everything on this Grifo works. It is in excellent mechanical condition and is a fantastic Grifo that is ready for any long distance drive and will present well in local car shows. Watch the drive video below.
The paint is approximately 15 years old. The interior is in very good condition and is original except the seats have had new leather on the top a few years ago. The backs of the seats are original and have the correct hole pattern (see photo below).
A copy of the original build sheet (see photo below) comes with the car as does an original Grifo owner’s manual (see photos below).

Work done in recent years – detailed receipts come with the car
* Complete engine re-build in 2012 by Borelli Motor Sports in San Jose, CA (very strong engine) – $13,327
* Underside work in 2006 by David Grant in Santa Clarita, CA (commissioned by the previous owner it still looks new under there) – $21,730
* The EZ Electric Power Steering Installed in 2010 – parts cost – $3,832 – labor – $2,385 – the original steering column is included if someone wants to return it to original steering. The electric powering steering is completely invisible with nothing in the engine compartment and the steering column looks stock until you crawl into the driver side foot well, look up and see an electric motor in line with the steering column.
* Modern three-point inertia seat belts professionally installed in 2010; they look like they could have come from the factory – $1,920
