A Special Iso Grifo from Ferrari of Los Gatos

My Friend Jeff purchased an Iso Grifo from Ferrari of Los Gatos back in the 80’s. The salesman told him it was a show car and he took the comment with a grain of salt. “Ya, sure it is.” Well, it turns out the salesman was correct. Iso Grifo #336 was the first series 2 […]
