I would have thought the answer to this so-called "mystery" is obvious. Someone finds a tired Iso, most likely a Rivolta, and commissions a second-rate body shop to reproduce a Breadvan-style body to fit on the chassis. The real Breadvan was a one-off and made without resorting to a test mule. And don't forget that until recently most Iso's were very undervalued and thus ripe for fashioning into something more exotic in terms of looks alone - which would be a tragic fate for one of the early Rivoltas. Having been in a number of these cars over the years, I can tell you that they certainly don't lack grunt!!
