Streets of Monterey: ISO



One of the best looking cars out of Italy in my opinion and while it might not have the name recognition with the average Joe, it is eye-catching. The long hood hid some of the best engines out of Detroit from a 327ci, 427ci, and 454ci Chevy engines under the hood the Grifo was able to keep up with just about anything else on the road. In 1972 Iso swapped over to a Ford Boss 351 which required a tall hood scoop nicknamed "the Penthouse". 

I spotted this clean Iso Grifo one morning on my way down to breakfast in Monterey. The best part is the vintage "Hollywood Sports Cars" license plate frame.
