Iso Grifo, Iso Fidia, Iso Rivolta For Sale Around The World

by Mike –

If you are looking for an Iso for sale then you are in luck because there are several for sale around the world now and probably more than I have seen for sale at one time.

There may not be one for sale near you but buyers of the popular Iso marque have to go where the sellers are and anyone who really wants an Iso must buy when they are for sale. Waiting for another one to come along may not get the job done.

1968 Iso Grifo 7-Litre

First up is this beautiful Iso Grifo 7-Litre at the Historics at Brooklands at the Brooklands Museum Trust in Surrey, England on June 6, 2015.

Iso Grifo 7-Litre For Sale

Estimate: £240,000 – £280,000

The auction company says this,

This Iso Grifo is the 1968 Earls Court Show car and is one of only four righthand drive, super-rare seven-litre Grifo’s built. Whilst it was priced similarly to the Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari Daytona in its day and with performance statistics to match, it has only been in more recent years that the collectability of Iso’s finest cars has been comparable to the cars that the Iso’s were designed to compete with when new.

The seller is well known in the Iso and Bizzarrini world and I am sure he has been a great steward of this terrific Grifo 7-Litre in rare right hand drive.

1973 Iso Fidia

Also at the Historics at Brooklands is this lovely blue Iso Fidia.

Iso Fidia For Sale

Estimate: £75,000 – £85,000

The auction company says,

Presented in its original colour of dark blue with beige leather interior, this Iso Fidia is in excellent condition with a low recorded mileage of only approximately 51,500 miles upon its 200mph odometer. Excellent panel gaps provide a reassuring sign that the integral strength of this Fidia remains strong; in fact, a look on the undersides confirms that there is nothing untoward going on. The interior, we are informed, is original and also in very fine order; in fact such is the quality that it exudes, that it certainly entices both the driver and passengers into its luxury leather sporting seats. The driver is kept well informed with an array of instruments and directional control is provided via the Italian Nardi steering wheel. Entertainment for the driver and passengers, apart from the wonderful music from the 5.8 litre V8, is supplied by a high quality McIntosh sound system.

The seller of this beautiful Fidia is also well know in Iso and Bizzarrini circles and I was a passenger in this Fidia in Italy about two years ago and found it to be quite comfortable with every seat taken.

1974 Iso Grifo Series II

In the San Francisco Bay Area is this special Iso Grifo; special because it is the last Grifo made by Iso.

Iso Grifo For Sale

Price: $465,000 USD

The dealer (Fantasy Junction) says,

Cosmetically, the car makes an excellent impression. The paintwork was done to high standards and shows beautifully, with essentially no blemishes of significance. The panels are straight and display excellent fit. The car was completely stripped during the 2012 repaint, and the body found to be excellent, with no rust or evidence of prior accident damage. The bright trim is excellent, with light swirls on the bumpers and slightly thin finish on a small area of the quarter window trims. The chrome is otherwise excellent and very difficult to fault. The lights and lenses are excellent and the glass is very good overall, with a few scratches to the front windscreen and driver’s side window. The wheels are in excellent shape.

I have seen this Grifo in person a few times and it is an excellent example. The seller was for 15 years the editor of the “Griffon”, the Iso & Bizzarrini Owner’s Club publication.

1967 Iso Rivolta Coupe

Located in St. Louis, Missouri is a silver Iso Rivolta GT.

Iso Rivolta For Sale

Price: $115,000 USD

The dealer (Hyman Ltd.) says,

This, chassis IR420639, is a remarkably well preserved example that was owned and preserved by a single family from 1984 to 2003. It is powered by one of the best GT car engine and transmission combinations ever built, the 300 horsepower, 360 lb-ft torque single 4-barrel carburetor Chevrolet Corvette V-8 with 4-speed Borg Warner T-10 gearbox. Nicely finished in silver with butterscotch upholstery, recent mechanical work includes rebuilt cylinder heads, new water pump, starter, fuel pump, clutch, Edelbrock high performance intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor and exhaust system. A US-delivery Rivolta GT, it has factory alloy wheels and provision for installing the air conditioning system that comes with it but is not presently fitted.

This is a very nice example of the Iso Rivolta GT and silver looks great on an Iso Rivolta.

1970 Iso Fidia Sedan

Here is another Iso Fidia for sale and this white Fidia is located in the center of the US – St. Louis, Missouri.

Iso Fidia For Sale

Price: $150,000 USD

The dealer (Hyman Ltd.) says,

This 1970 Iso Rivolta Fidia is one of only approximately 104 built with Chevrolet engines, one of only 26 of them with the ZF 5-speed manual transmission and one of just 12 built for the U.S. market in 1970. It is powered by the high performance 350hp 327 cubic inch Corvette engine incorporating Iso’s own forged connecting rods and high capacity aluminum oil pan on its original Iso-stamped cylinder block. Other features include 3.31:1 rear axle, 15×7 Borrani centerlock wire wheels, power windows, air conditioning (updated with a modern rotary-style compressor), Corvette valve covers and MSD electronic ignition.

I really like this color combination – white and blue. These are comfortable four door sedans suitable for families who like an Italian classic powered by an American V8.

    Hallo,

    I know of one original.
    But the price I never knew.
    I always yearned for Grifo, but unfortunately it’s own people for whom they represent only source of money.
    A very poorly and needlessly restoring ….
    If I could, I would buy the original.

  2. I love the Grifo. I viewed one about a year ago with only 30k miles on it. I think it is the lowest mileage Grifo in the world. Would love to own one as I think it is the best sports car ever made.
