1973 ISO Lele Coupe

  • Chassis Number: EBK6372 PAS 1
The Lele was a 2+2 sports coupe produced by Italian automaker Iso Rivolta between 1969 and 1974. It was intended to fill the gap between their Grifo and Fida models and named after the wife of Piero Rivolta, the son of the company's founder, Renzo. The Lele was designed by Marcello Gandini of Carrozzeria Bertone. These cars were originally equipped with a Chevrolet V8 until 1972, when GM demanded advance payment for engines. So later cars, like this example, were built with a Ford 351 Cobra Jet under the hood instead.

The Iso Rivolta Lele's are relatively rare, with some 250 examples being built. This Iso Rivolta Lele, a graceful 2+2 coupe combining Italian styling with American muscle, that delivers true luxury grand touring. It is Ford-powered (351 cubic-inch), and has an automatic transmission, independent rear suspension, air conditioning, power windows, and power steering which combined, delivered a nicely balanced GT with room for 4. (The original three-speed transmission has been replaced with a four-speed with overdrive to improve performance.)

The Iso Rivolta Lele's were built to round out the Rivolta product line of cars that included the Grifo, Rivilta, and Fidia.

Originally a West Coast car (and believed to have been owned by Bizzarrini authority Winston Goodfellow), the car was eventually restored by Tom Davis. The current owner has restored several systems and done cosmetic work, as well, making it an ideal touring car.
