Description

French registration

- A rare model
- Powerful and reliable Chevrolet engine
- In very good condition
- Delivered new in France

Manufactured in 1966, this car was delivered new in France by Sonauto and registered for the first time in 1968. In 2001 the car was restored, and the body since has been in very good state, withstanding well the ravages of time. The interior was also redone, reusing the original light beige leather and replacing the seats' foam and carpeting. The combination is good-looking and blends beautifully with the wood trims. The car comes equipped with a radio.
In 2013, the Dunlop braking system was redone, and the steering knuckles and suspension parts replaced. The engine is the V8 Chevrolet 327 (5.4-liters) from origin, with a number ending with the letter P, like on all the blocks delivered by GM to Iso Rivolta. The car, in 2014, got a new 600CFM Holley carburetor, mounted on an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold. The ignition system is also new. The four-speed Borg-Warner manual gearbox works perfectly, as does the clutch.
With its elegant and powerful lines, based on new wire wheel rims shod with new tyres, it is a rare example if a IR300 delivered new in France, in a very beautiful condition.
