1968 Iso Grifo

I’m excited that the garage sale season is starting up again! This Iso Grifo was a nice garage sale find. It was one of those sales that my wife and son would call a “rubbish sale.” However, their definition of rubbish is sometimes different than mine. It was strange, though, in that it was a bachelor guy who didn’t have any toys, games or children’s clothes. But there, on a table with a bunch of completely unrelated odd and ends was this one nice little Matchbox. It had a bit of adhesive on the roof, which I was able to clean off with some rubbing alchohol.

Early versions of the Italian Iso Grifo, which was made from 1963 to 1974, were powered by a modified Chevrolet Corvette 327 V8.
