Isotta History

1927 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A

Share on:

This Isotta Fraschini is believed to have been built for a Greek Minister of Finance. The aristocratic Coupe Chauffeur coachwork is by Jacques Saoutchik and includes several Saoutchik trademarks, such as the forward-sweeping strip down the side of the cowling and the beautiful woodwork surrounding the passenger windows. The car was confiscated by the Italian Army when it invaded Greece in 1940 and was used as a command vehicle. After the war ended the car was sold as 'surplus war material' and found its way into the garage of a Greek pharmacist in Athens. Major William A. Pelton, an American commander in Crete, later brought the car to his home in Dayton, Ohio. In 1964, after two additional owners, this Tipo 8A was acquired by Tony Hulman for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum where it remains.
