After the quick success of our ’69 Ford GT sale we decided to roll out another late 60s supercar grand tourer with a massive engine and sultry lines, the Iso Grifo.
Mert had some questions about this car, not least of which, “What the #*!* is an Ifo Grifo??”
This car (the giant-sized version) was built for about 5 years in the late 60s by Iso Autoveicoli S.P.A. The Grifo wasn’t just pretty, it had a Corvette engine and could achieve serious speeds. Not many American farmboys from Brooklyn (what Mert claims to be) have laid eyes on one. When Mert found out it had a 427 small-block Corvette under there he started talking excitedly and didn’t stop for six days.
