    Simply amazing!
    I'm not getting excited by any new cars lately, no matter how exotic or limited, new premiere every minute now.
    The project above is just desirable beyond words.....

    Very pretty. I kind of dig the restomod trend. You get a modern running car that looks more classic. I have thought a Vette would be a good base to make a Bizzarinni. Modern car with retro look.

    Way too short. :( Would love to see a much more in-depth, start to finish, vid of this beautiful build.

    Different Iso model car, but with 'original' 7 Litre Corvette motor
    1970 Iso Grifo 7 Litre (note the '7 Litre badge at 7:10 . Same as that on the Rivolta's LS engine cover)

    Absolutely stunning design.

    Iso's are such specialty cars, both historically and technically, it's really easy to misspeak and get facts completely wrong. It's a nice video of a Grifo and visually presents the car well. And I'm not an expert - but these guys talking about it don't come close to doing the car justice.. Designed by Bertone, but they totally overlook the person who penned it was the iconic Giorgio Giugiaro, the emblem they call a 'prancing cat' is a Griffon, which is the name of the car in Italian = 'Grifo'.. there were never any Hemis put in them (331cid was a Gen1 Hemi, but there is no such thing as a 'small Hemi'), the AC is American and is no shocker that it works well, the 7Litre was a Series 2 option, but this is a Series 1 car - a number of S1 Grifos are known to have been factory retrofitted with the 7Litre... I'll stop commenting there for fear of misspeaking myself, or for sounding smug. It's always the peril of new owners and uninformed presenters to misspeak. I don't envy them. Kudos to the owner for recognizing a beautiful car.
