Vintage C&D Road Test: Iso Grifo G.L. – “Proof that pedigree doesn’t mean a thing”

(first posted 3/29/2018)     Tatra87’s superb look at the Italian “assembler” Iso, with its use of Chevrolet V8 engines clothed in superb Italian suits, included the Grifo. Intended to compete more directly with Ferrari’s GT cars, the Grifo used a shortened chassis, a higher-output 350 hp 327, and a superb new body designed by Maestro Giorgetto Giugiario. Car and Driver subjected one to its road test regime.
