Timeless, elegant, powerful, beautiful dream car come true – and many more superlatives have been used to describe the Iso Grifo GL. Very rare is also apt.
The Iso Grifo for sale here is an exceptional example that has been restored to the highest standards by the marque expert, Roberto Negri; one of the very few in the US. The Iso Grifo is certainly one of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s masterpieces (styled while he was with Bertone). The color of this Grifo, Bleu Monthlery (dark blue metallic), is rare and very beautiful.
John Bolster summed it up nicely in “Autosport” on August 12, 1966,
I have never driven a car of which the appearance attracted so much favorable comment…for the man who wants the ultimate in two-seaters, this is the best that money can buy.

Jerry Titus wrote in the “Sports Car Graphic” July 1966 issue,
There’s little doubt, once you’re seated behind the wheel, that the Grifo is a performance GT in every sense of the word. …we rate the Grifo as one of the top GTs in existence. It has some unique and practical features all its own, and the body styling gets our personal vote over all others that can be considered ‘production GTs’.

…it (the Grifo) is the ultimate in transport for the enthusiast, a kind of dream car come true. It brings back some of the lost pleasures of motoring and introduces many more new ones.
