8A Roadster Body, Pebble Beach Winner
Perhaps the Crowned Jewel of the KC Vintage Cars collection is this 1929 Isotta Fraschini. A stunning two-seater, “V” windshield Speedster with a rumble seat and dual stacked tires, the Isotta proves that “old” doesn’t mean “slow”. 100 mile per hour performance is easily obtained with the lightweight body and the brilliance in engineering under the hood. The lightweight body makes it eligible for events such as “Mile Miglia”

No expense was spared in this total restoration. In our expert opinion, this is, without a doubt, one of THE most exciting Isotta Fraschini ever designed and built. One of the most expensive cars of 1929 with an original sticker price of $22,000, this was the car of choice for the aristocracy.

Rare, there are less than 100 of these remaining intact throughout the entire world. This car was once owned by renowned Italian opera tenor, the late Sergio Franchi. Frame and engine #1462

This car has been displayed at Pebble Beach and was featured in New York City at the famous Italian Avant-Garde in Car Design Show.  Stunning looks, performance and rarity make this one of the most sought-after automobiles for the discerning collector.
