A Rare Series I Gem Talks Back to the Seventies

Steer clear of the commonplace, road-trippers. Introducing to the online auto market, the 1970 Iso Grifo. Not just any Grifo but a Targa, specifically one of roughly 14 lemon-drop rarities, a testament to the grandeur of the series I production line. A noble reminder of times when Nixon was fresh in office and Apollo 13 had just returned to Earth, albeit not as planned!

This pristine beauty, dontcha know, was born on May 21, 1970, crossing the atlantic from Germany to the states exactly three decades later. Fast forward to now, after an overhaul and some added bonus features this wily metal beast is just itching for a new home! Care for it that is. Product listing HERE.

A quintessential package of old-school rumble and modern comfort. An ensemble of 350ci Chevrolet V8 under the hood, ZF five-speed manual transmission, and a limited-slip differential. Fancy terms for a very loud car that runs… fast.

Moment of silence for the fine craftsmanship enveloped in dark blue metallic, reupholstered grey leather interior, independent front suspension, and a De Dion rear axle, because why not? Lacquered with a layer of sass with the electric power steering, air-conditioning, and, last but not least, powerful disc brakes. Splendid, ain’t it?

A kind callout to my gratifying sponsor, Global Self Storage based out of East Hampton, CT for making these esoteric online vehicle excavations possible. These kind folks accept phone calls at 888.851.5602 or can be reached by email at hello@globalselfstoragellc.com to free you from worldly possessions, temporarily of course!
