Description

Powered by the 5.3-litre V8 engine, this Iso Grifo Series II is one of only five imported to the UK in right-hand drive configuration - first registered in the UK in February 1972. Being an automatic, it has the tall axle ratio of 2.88:1, and was factory fitted from new with air conditioning and ZF re-circulating ball power steering. Previous owners include R. Beckwith-Smith from 1982 to 1990, and A. Schroeder up to 1992. In 1994 The current owner then commissioned a repaint in Blu Sera, which was carried out to a high standard in 2002 by Prestige Restorations in Chertsey.
A complete Concours quality interior re-trimming was carried out in 2017 in stunning Chamois colored leather, along with Wilton carpeting, maintaining all factory original stitching patterns.

Mechanical re-commissioning and subsequent servicing has been entrusted to McGrath Maserati. In 2005, the car was invited to the Cartier 'Style et Luxe' at Goodwood where it won its class. It was also exhibited at Salon Privé at the Hurlingham Club in 2009. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices for servicing and repair. A rare and elegant classic, this Grifo is ready for grand touring or daily use.
