Cesare Isotta and Vincenzo Fraschini started building cars in 1899 in Italy. They established their technical credentials by winning the prestigious Targa Florio race in 1908 and introducing the first production 4-wheel brake system in 1909. They concentrated on luxury cars after World War I.

They introduced the Tipo 8A in 1929 in the class of Rolls-Royce and Hispano-Suiza. All were sold as chassis-only with customers then selecting a customer body builder. A Tipo 8A finished sixth in the first Mille Miglia with Bindo Maserati as a co-driver. Only 950 Tipo 8A cars were built through 1931. The Tipo 8A was built in Milan and has a 7.4L single block straight eight engine, a three-speed transmission and four-wheel brakes.

This car is a two-seat boattail with a tiny cockpit in the tail for a third person. In 1949, this car was acquired in Africa where it was being used to tow-launch gliders. The purchaser, a Cape Town engineer, carefully dismantled the car and stored the entire vehicle in crates. After 30 years of storage, the engine started a five-year restoration, completing it in 1985.
