Grifo Series I (Interim) 7.0 Liter

Blue (Blu Mellizzato) with Crema leather interior with Blue carpeting, Restored, Approximately 58,000 kilometers/35,000 miles from new, Rare factory 7.0 liter, 5-speed ZF manual and factory air conditioning.

The Iso Grifo A3/L was based on a shortened Iso Rivolta GT chassis and was introduced at the 1963 show in Turin. The L stands for Lusso or luxury. The Grifo was styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone. It is a beautiful, timeless handmade design that still looks fresh and modern today. The motoring press loved the Grifo as well. The first Iso Grifos were powered by Corvette 327 V8. The Iso Grifo offered here is one of the rare, higher powered, limited production versions known as the Grifo 7 Litre using the Corvette 427, 400 bhp engine which produced 460 lbs. of torque at 3600 rpm. The 5-speed big block version was the fastest of all Grifos and was recognized as the fastest production car in the world in the late 1960s.

This Grifo chassis #7L950297 had many accolades. Restored by David Grant Restorations, this iso was a class winner at The Pebble Beach Concours in 1999. Used sparingly thereafter, it has since been maintained regardless of cost by each of its caretakers to remain in superb concours condition. In 2003, this 7.0 liter was a featured vehicle in Octane magazine. It has been a participant at the 2012 The Quail A Motorsport Gather, 2013 Boca Raton and Winter Park concours where it was awarded. In 2015, this Grifo was sold to a well-known New York based collector and has once again toured the 2015-2016 concours circuit. It has been shown at the 2015 Americana Manhasset Concours where it was awarded, the 2016 Palm Beach, Mar a Lago concours and most recently at the 2016 Boca Raton Concour where it was awarded Best on Class as well as Sponsors Choice Award.

This is the Iso Grifo to own and has been well known and respected within the Iso community. It is stated to be 1 of 43 produced in this model year and there may be a few as 10 produced with these rare options and even fewer in the world in this Grifos caliber-condition.

This Grifo comes complete with original factory books, tools, spare, jack, as well as thorough documentation and history. Undoubtedly, this is one of the finest examples in existence. Absolutely immaculate and ready for road use or show.
