Artcurial Motorcars says,

– Rare model with outstanding performance
– Same owner for over 30 years
– Known history
– Delivered new in France, known history from new

The auction company provides a detailed history description of this car but have left out the part where it was seriously crashed in the 1970s. The accident was so serious that the bumpers were sold to noted Bizzarrini historian Jack Koobs de Hartog. Photos of the bumpers are below.

The estimate is 450,000 – 550,000 Euros ($614,092 – $750,557 at today’s exchange rate).

This Bizzarrini GT 5300 looks rough in the photos and many items are not correct: tail lights, steering wheel, no headlight covers, side vents painted black, dashboard and engine bay.

There are more photos on the auction company site.

The dashboard does not look correct and it has a few extra holes in the leather and the wrong steering wheel.

The engine bay is unkempt and incomplete. There are no heat shields, the radiator over flow tank is out of position and the brake boosters are in the wrong location – plus more.

Assuming one can get comfortable with the history and the condition, all the items that I mention can be corrected with a little money and talent. There may be other items of concern not visible in the photos – but how often do you see a real Bizzarrini GT 5300 for sale?

    Well, at least there appears to be no issue with VIN))
    The auction house lists the information that the seller provides. Doubt this car would pop on Carfax ūüėČ This is the time when the buyer should step up to the plate and start doing research. At projected sales price of 3/4 million, it would behoove any perspective future owner of this car do some due diligence. If I ever get to the point of seriously looking at an Iso or a Biz you’d be my initial point of contact.

  2. Even with all the incorrect items I am sure it will pull close to a record price. This is much cheaper than a GTO.
