1965 Iso Grifo A3/C

The Iso Grifo is a limited production grand tourer automobile manufactured by Italian Iso Autoveicoli S.p.A. between 1965 and 1974. Intended to compete with Ferrari and Maserati, it utilized power trains and components supplied by Chevrolet and Ford. The first production GL models appeared in 1965 and were powered by Chevrolet Corvette small-block 327 (5.4-litre) V8s fitted to Borg-Warner 4-speed manual transmissions.
In total, 322 Series I and 78 Series II cars were built for a total of 413 Grifos, 90 of which were 7-litre. The rarest are the Series II 5-speeds (23 units) and the Series II Targa (4 units).

Due to their rarity today Grifos are highly desirable collectibles. A concours quality example will make $ 2m.
