(I changed the ame of the pictures, couldn't make it to easy...)

Looks like it has a Iso Grifo badge (and wheels) and I bet it is the work of Bizzarrini - sort of like the breadvan 250 Ferrari. Or its a copy.

It's a fake of the Ferrari breadvan, and a poor one at that!

It's a Iso Rivolta. That's all I know. Been searching the web, following links on Iso, Bizzarrini, Drogo etc, but can't find anything about this car. Maybe someone has some more info?

Why not post this on the Yahoo Iso-Bizzarrini Group?

I'm not a member of the Yahoo group, but feel free to post it there, Alex. Hopefully they can come up with an answer

I've sent the pictures to the Iso-millennium site and they returned me this e-mail today:

Hallo AlfaRonny, I have showed the pictures to my Iso Millennium Committe friends and we believe this is an "unofficial" replica of the Ferrari BreadVan built by Giotto Bizzarrini on a GTO chassis. It can be a recent model, built by an extravagant coach-builder... thank you for the pictures and best regards!

Alessandrio Brioschi
Iso Millennium Committee

So no definite identification of the mystery car.
Maybe someone will react later ???

Try searching the Bizzarini yahoo group for breadvan. There are infos on both the Ferrari and a misterious ISO-engined breadvan supposedly found in the south of France.

Breadvan

Well, it is not built on a GTO chassis for sure. It has the Corvette engine and my guess is it is built on a Rivolta GT chassis (perhaps Lele, same chassis). When it was built is not known, yet. Bizzarrini doens't seem to have anything to do with it either. One other thing, you'd expect an older ISO badge on a car like this if it was built in the early sixties.
Fot the car's history Bizzarrini's involvement would be interesting. For its value perhaps as well. For now it seems there are some very creative people using old Iso's to built their own dreamcars. We'll see where this leads to. Italy is full of hidden treasures. New and old.

Are there pictures of the other ISO at that meeting too Alfaronny? Where there more Iso's too besides that one? And where were these photos taken?

Nice pics by the way! Tanks for posting.

The photos were take at the Spa Italia event at Spa Francorchamps early June.
Unbelievable ugly styled car not worth the "Iso" nor "Breadvan" name.

Ciao,
Jack

not a breadvan(can)

This is the real response to the question send to the ISO Committee:

I have ridden your e-mail and I belive there's a misunderstanding.
I agree perfectly the words of IMC member Alessandro Brioschi who
explain that this car is not built by Bizzarrini and don't have
connection with ISO history. He correctly writes to kind Mr AlfaRonny
that the car is probably a replica of the original car who all we know,
the original Ferrari Bread Van, built in the sixties by Bizzarrini. Alessandro
in his email DON'T says nothing about the origin of the model in the
pictures who may be naturally built on an ISO chassis.



Is someone trying to fool us into thinking there is a link between this car and Mr. Bizzarrini????
