There were only thirteen Iso Grifo Series 1 Targas made and this Iso Grifo is for sale – a 1970 model that has been owned by the same owner for the last 21 years. Iso Grifo Targas almost never come up for sale and there may not be another one for sale for years to come.

Ownership history: Jurgen Niederstat, Winston Goodfellow, Ron Ciardella and the current owner, Walter Kirtland, bought this Grifo Targa on March 13, 1992.

This Iso Grifo Targa is in excellent condition having been restored by Bill Decarr at Bill’s Body Shoppe in Bellflower California in 1995.

The car was striped to bare metal, dipped and all rust was removed, damaged panels were replaced, doors, trunk, hood and top were matched and gapped in the Bill Decarr fashion. Bill Decarr also painted the car.

A new interior using correct materials was also part of the complete restoration. The 350 hp original engine was rebuilt as were all suspension and drive train components.

It has been driven lightly since the restoration was completed, never in the rain and has always been stored in a climate controlled environment. All gauges work except the clock. The seats do not adjust properly and the 18 year old paint is showing its age with a small crack at the upper left corner of the trunk.

This Grifo Targa was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1995.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding Iso Grifo Targa that may not come along again for many years.

  1. That is a great price for a car this rare and well taken care of.

  2. With some small details corrected (grille shouldn’t be black; spinners aren’t correct for a car of this year; incorrect radio; etc. this car could be perfect. That said, price is too low for this car, as is, by about $70,000. This is a $400,000 car.

  3. bruce caron says

    It’s a beautiful car and I wouldn’t throw it out of bed because of the radio or spinners. Mike you should sell your Bizzarrini, buy the Targa, and sell my your Grifo on the easy payment plan. I’ll even throw in my Iso Rivolta parts pile.;-)

  4. Sounds like Darren Frank’s Grifo has company
