Seller Submission: 1972 Iso Rivolta Lele

1972 Iso Rivolta Lele

Yesterday we had a cool Ford-powered Italian and today we have yet another! This is an Iso Rivolta Lele and it also has a Ford 351 under the hood. Even fewer of these were built though and the seller’s asking price reflects that fact. Mileage is low (under 40k kilometers) and the current owner bought it from the original owner’s daughter last year. It’s all there and the seller has already done a lot of the maintenance needed to keep it on the road. The car is located in Vicenza, Italy and it’s listed for sale here on Anamera.

Lele Interior

The inside of this one looks comfy too and you can defiantly see the Alfa influences. It even looks sort of sporty in there. Well, except for that automatic shift stick poking up out of the transmission tunnel. Who wants to mess with gears when you are cruising along on the Autostrade anyway?

Disguised Ford V8

Again, branded valve covers hide the fact that this powerplant came from America. I doubt that any Iso customers complained when it came time to service this thing though.

Good Looking Lines

The Bertone styled body looks sleek and the design is very unique. You can admire more photos here. These were almost too classy for their own good though as they never took off as well as Iso would have liked them to. That’s okay though because today people would rather have something rare than common. So, this has all the right things –  rarity, good looks, and power. Now we just need to convince the next owner to give us a ride!

    I love the design of the dashboard but why do they always use that cheap generic Ford shifter? That just drives me nuts.

    Stunner of a car. Comfortable, easy-to-maintain powerplant and gorgeous looks. Pretty solid combination!

    A friend had one in the late 70’s we called it the ISO Revolting. But it was quick in a straight line.

    120k Euro = about $131,000

    Bertone designed some pretty good bodies but I think this one is a miss. I like the airy greenhouse, but the corny side details I could do without.

    I thought the Rivolta and the Lele were two separate cars by Iso.

    This does appear to have a Rivolta badge on the back though….

      Rivolta was the family name. I have seen all of the company’s big cars–Lele, Fidia, And Grifo–referred to as “ISO Rivoltas,” in addition to the original ISO Rivolta GT.
