This Lamborghini is the 104th of 125 Isleros produced. It was delivered to Lamborghini from Marazzi on October 10th of 1968 and the finished coupe with finished in Argento silver over tobacco leather interior. It rolled off the line just over a month later on November 11th. It was shipped to nearby Milan for concessionaire Auto Elite, arriving on January 28th of 1969 and sold shortly thereafter to its first owner in the ritzy Como region. With registration plate 'CO 288540', it would remain in the country for another six years before being sold to the United Kingdom in 1975.

In the U.K., it was given registration 'JYP 16N' and was owned by John Henry Lewis until it was sold to John Theodore Barnes on August 1st of 1980. Mr. Barnes would keep the car for nearly four years. During his ownership, the car was given a major overhaul that included a rebuild of the drivetrain and a respray of the car to classic Rosso Corsa.

In April of 1984, the car was purchased by John Yearsley of Delaware and shipped to the United States. Mr. Yearsley would keep the car for 16 years before selling it to the next owner in 2000. It moved to the West Coast about a decade later. From 2011 to 2012, it was given extensive restoration work that included a rebuild of the carburetors, water pump, and cylinder heads with new valves and guides fitted. An additional $55,000 of work was performed on the car.

The result of this work was rewarded with a 3rd in Class at the 2012 Concorso Italian.

The current owner acquired the car in 2014.
