Imperial Cabriolet
Coachwork: Castagna
Isotta Fraschini's Milan factory was located near two of Italy's finest coachbuilders, Cesare Sala and Castagna - and these two firms built a great many custom bodies for the marque at its peak. Carlo Castagna already had a thriving business by the turn of the century and by the 1920s, working with his two sons, Ercole and Emilio, Carrozzeria Castagna was topping Isotta's Tipo 8, 8A and 8B chassis with creations ordered by the wealthy, the aristocracy and even the pope.

This 1929 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Castagna Imperial Cabriolet was among the most conservative styles offered, but one that greatly appealed to wealthy Americans. At least a third of the 950 Tipo 8 chassis built were exported to the United States. This Imperial Cabriolet was acquired by its current owner in 2016 and has just been restored for its debut at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
