1970 Iso Grifo #323

Restored to its delivery specification in 2007 by il Bottegone, Grifo #323 has since been entrusted to Grand Touring for both restorative and routine maintenance.

Iso Grifo #323 was completed on May 25, 1970. It was finished in Acqua Verde over brown leather and equipped with a 7 liter 427, mated to a ZF 5-speed transmission.

Grifo #323 is an extraordinarily unique example— not only is it one of only 90 7-Liter examples produced but of those 90, only 15 were equipped with the 5-speed transmission, the vast majority having been fitted with the 4-speed or automatic. Making it even more unique is that #323 is the only one of those 15 equipped with the quick ratio steering. One other 7-Liter sported the quick ratio steering however, it was an automatic. Across all variants, only 15 Grifos were completed with this feature.

Restored to its delivery specification in 2007, Grifo #323 appears nearly exactly as it did in May of 1970. Under current ownership, we at Grand Touring have been trusted to care for this significant example for both restorative and routine maintenance.
