Corvette inside: 1963 ISO Rivolta IR340


As an Italian-American hybrid, there were not a lot of choices about the engine to be used: for this luxury coupé mr. Rivolta, along with Bizzarrini, decided to choose the Corvette engine mated to a four speed trasmission.


Bertone, thanks to the magic hand of Giugiaro, put his signature on the body lines and the result was, given the opinions of many, a great tourer very well built, plenty of torque, power and very stead even at very high speed. 147 cars only were produced, both for its price tag and maybe because its displacement was enormous in a country where the average middle size car had one fifth of the displacement of this GT.


This particular car seems to have a Texas plate and that matches with the first impression of a tired but very dry car, it seems basically complete and with a very nice color combo: probably red with parchment interiors. Restoring it will be not an easy task but the starting point seems good. Find it for sale at €37,500 (today $45,700) here in Saint-Leu-la-Forêt, France.
